Abstract:The quantitative rank order of the cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of the DBPs showed that brominated haloacetic acids were more genotoxic than their chlorinated analogs in mammalian cells. The difference in the responses to DBPs by bacterial and mammalian cells suggests that the relative risks based on Salmonella alone should be questioned. The in vitro microplate based bacterial and mammalian assays developed and used in this research can be employed for screening other important chemicals in the environment.
