A receptor model analysis of the mutagenicity of ambient fine particles in air samples collected under EPA's Integrated Air Cancer Project has been performed. The analysis was based on multiple linear regression, using measured concentrations of inorganic chemical elements which are good indicators of likely sources of the mutagenicity. This has allowed the determination of the separate contributions made by woodsmoke and mobile sources to the mutagenicity measured in a residential neighborhood in Albuquerque, NM. The results is generally consistent with the known potencies of these sources, based on source measurements.
