||This test involves the growth of mice cells in culture dishes in the presence of the material being tested (the experimental protocol used is a modification of that described by Clive, D. and Spector, J.F.S., Laboratory Procedure for Assessing Specific Locus Mutations at the TK Locus in Cultured L5178Y Mouse Lymphoma Cells. Mutation Research 31:17-29, (1975)). After the 'exposure' period, the cells are washed and placed in a growth medium which restricts the growth of 'normal' cells. Only mutant cells should grow in this medium. Control groups are used to detect the growth of any non-exposed cells in the medium.
||The quality of the documents listed in the Office of Toxic Substances database may not meet usual NTIS standards but are included to further the opportunity for the scientific and technical community to locate materials which may not be available elsewhere.
