Experiments were conduced to study the ability of irradiated glucose to induce reverse, mutations inS. typhimurium by host-mediated assay. The results revealed no significant increase in the frequency of reverse mutations compared to controls.

Key words

Salmonella typhimurium lucose, irradiated mutations, reverse host-mediated assay
