Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cultured tobacco plant cells activated 2-aminofluorene to an agent mutagenic to Salmonella typhimurium strain TA98. The plant activation of 2- aminofluorene is heat-inactivated and may not involve solely cytochrome P450. The kinetics of activation demonstrated both time- and concentration-dependent responses.
