Quantitative relationship between structure and mutagenic activity in a series of 5-nitroimidazoles

Teratogenesis, Carcinogenesis, and Mutagenesis
G L BiagiP A Borea


The mutagenic activity of 20 5-nitroimidazoles was tested in Salmonella typhimurium TA-100 strain by means of the Ames test. A multiple regression analysis using the interaction term MR2 X Hb and the chromatographic Rm values yielded the equation: (formula see text); where C is the molar concentration (1 M X 10(-6) of each drug increasing the revertants by five times in the Ames test. The interaction term MR2 X Hb takes into account the positive effect exerted by substituents characterized by higher molar refractivity (MR2) and capable of hydrogen bonding (Hb). It was found that when the electroreduction potentials (EIc.p.) were included, the correlation was not improved.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
