Title Studies of the mutagenic effect of the preparation Alachlor in the Ames test

Bibliographic information 1986, Vol.29, No.1, p.26-31. 11 ref.
Abstract Alachlor is the active ingredient of the herbicide Lasso. The studies were carried out by the standardised incorporation method on 5 standard histidine-autotrophic strains of Salmonella. The preparation was tested in parallel series of experiments with and without metabolic activation at 8, 20, 40 and 100µg/Petri dish. Alachlor is a directly acting bacterial mutagen. It is now necessary to evaluate its mutagenicity in mammals.
