Mutagenicity of selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous contaminants with a high octanol-water partition coefficient (kow) and are persistent in the environment. PAHs have various modes of action including mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and teratogenicity. The mutagenic sensitivity to PAHs of single-cell gel electrophoresis (Comet assay) was compared with the Ames reversion Salmonella experiment (using Salmonella...
