Mutat Res. 1980 Sep;79(1):59-71.7 epoxide-containing compounds: allylbenzene oxide, styrene oxide, trans-beta-methylstyrene oxide, 4-chlorophenyl glycidyl ether, vinylcyclohexene dioxide, octene dioxide and hexene dioxide were evaluated for mutagenic activity in 4 histidine-requiring strains of Salmonella typhimurium, namely: TA1535, TA100, TA1537 and TA98. These epoxides, except trans-beta-methylstyrene oxide, were mutagenic in TA1535 and TA100 but none of the tested compounds caused mutations in strains TA1537 and TA98. Read More
