Abstract

The metabolic inhibitors acetaminophen, 7,8-benzoflavone, and methimazle significantly reduced the mutagenicity of the promutagen N-nitrosodimethylamine in the higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana. In contrast, these metabolic inhibitors had no effect on the mutagenicity of the direct-acting mutagen N-methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine.
