Abstract
In experiments using yeast without addition of an external metabolic activation system, ... BVDU was co-mutagenic and showed an insignificant anti-recombinogenic effect in combination with triethylene melamine (TEM). In the presence of activating S9-mix, the anti-recombinogenicity and co-mutagenicity could clearly be seen. At higher concentrations the co-mutagenic effect was converted into anti-mutagenicity. The other three 5-substituted pyrimidine nucleoside analogs were tested only in the presence of activating S9-mix and showed similar effects. As TEM is a direct alkylating agent that is inactivated by liver microsomes, the higher activity in presence of S9-mix can be interpreted as resulting from metabolic activation of the 5-substituted pyrimidine nucleoside analogs.
