4NQO, dissolved in DMSO (0.4 [micro]g/plate), and N4AC (10 [micro]g/plate) were used as positive controls for TA7004.
typhimurium strain to the appropriate dose of mutagens MNNG, 2AA, or 4NQO, plus LME or SME (250 or 500 [micro]g/Petri dish), under suitable assay conditions as described previously.
Reduction of ROS-induced mutations was also observed only when LME or SME were not exposed to higher concentrations of 4NQO (Figure 4).
