Genetic toxicity in vitro

Description of key information

Based on the prediction done using the OECD QSAR toolbox version 3.4 with log kow as the primary descriptor and considering the five closest read across substances, gene mutation was predicted for Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P. The study assumed the use of Salmonella typhimurium strainsTA 1535, TA 1537, TA 98, TA 100 and TA 102 with and without S9 metabolic activation system. Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P was predicted to not induce gene mutation in Salmonella typhimurium strains TA 1535, TA 1537, TA 98, TA 100 and TA 102 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence, according to the prediction made, is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.

Based on the predicted result it can be concluded that the substance is considered to not toxic as per the criteria mentioned in CLP regulation.

Additional information

Gene mutation in vitro:

Prediction model based estimation for target chemical and data from read across chemical have been reviewed to determine the mutagenic nature of Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P (IUPAC name: trisodium 2,5-dichloro-4-(4-{[5-({4-chloro-6-[(4-sulfonatophenyl)amino]- 1,3,5-triazin-2-yl}amino)-2-sulfonatophenyl]diazenyl}- 3-methyl-5-oxo-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)benzenesulfonate). The studies are summarized as below:

Based on the prediction done using the OECD QSAR toolbox version 3.4 with log kow as the primary descriptor and considering the five closest read across substances, gene mutation was predicted for Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P. The study assumed the use of Salmonella typhimurium strainsTA 1535, TA 1537, TA 98, TA 100 and TA 102 with and without S9 metabolic activation system. Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P was predicted to not induce gene mutation in Salmonella typhimurium strains TA 1535, TA 1537, TA 98, TA 100 and TA 102 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence, according to the prediction made, is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.

In another prediction done for the target chemical, Gene mutation toxicity was predicted for Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P using the battery approach from Danish QSAR database (2017). The study assumed the use of Salmonella typhimurium bacteria in the Ames test. The end point for gene mutation has been modeled in the Danish QSAR using the three software systems Leadscope, CASE Ultra and SciQSAR. Based on predictions from these three systems, a fourth and overall battery prediction is made. The battery prediction is made using the so called Battery algorithm. With the battery approach it is in many cases possible to reduce “noise” from the individual model estimates and thereby improve accuracy and/or broaden the applicability domain. Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P was assumed to not induce mutation in Salmonella typhimurium by the Ames assay performed and hencethe chemical is predictedto notclassify as a gene mutant in vitro.

In another study for structurally and functionally similar read across chemical, Ishidate et al (Food and chemical toxicology, 1984) performed gene mutation toxicity study to determine the mutagenic nature of Food red 102 (RA CAS no 2611 -82 -7; IUPAC name: 1,3-Naphthalenedisulfonic acid, 7-hydroxy-8-((4-sulfo-1-naphthalenyl)azo)-, trisodium salt). The study was performed using S. typhimurium strains TA92, TA1535, TA100, TA1537, TA94 and TA98 with and without S9 metabolic activation system. The test was performed as per the preincubation assay at six different concentrations with 5 mg/plate being the maximum concentration. The chemical was dissolved in phosphate buffer. Preincubation was performed for 20 mins and the exposure duration was for 48 hrs. The result was considered positive if the number of colonies found was twice the number in the control (exposed to the appropriate solvent or untreated). Food red 102 failed to induce a doubling of revertant colonies over the control using S. typhimurium strains TA92, TA1535, TA100, TA1537, TA94 and TA98 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.

In the same study by Ishidate et al, Chromosomal aberration study was performed to determine the mutagenic nature of Food red 102 (RA CAS no 2611 -82 -7; IUPAC name:1,3-Naphthalenedisulfonic acid, 7-hydroxy-8-((4-sulfo-1-naphthalenyl)azo)-, trisodium salt). The cells were exposed to the test material at three different doses with 1 mg/mL being the maximum concentration for 24 and 48 hr. Colcemid (final concn 0.2µg/ml) was added to the culture 2 hr before cell harvesting. The cells were then trypsinized and suspended in a hypotonic KCI solution (0.075 M) for 13 min at room temperature. After centrifugation the cells were fixed with acetic acid-methanol (1:3, v/v) and spread on clean glass slides. After air-drying, the slides were stained with Giemsa solution for 12-15 min. A hundred well-spread metaphases were observed under the microscope. In the present studies, no metabolic activation systems were applied. The incidence of polyploid cells as well as of cells with structural chromosomal aberrations such as chromatid or chromosome gaps, breaks, exchanges, ring formations, fragmentations and others, was recorded on each culture plate. Untreated cells and solvent-treated cells served as negative controls, in which the incidence of aberrations was usually less than 3.0%. The results were considered to be negative if the incidence was less than 4.9%, equivocal if it was between 5.0 and 9.9%, and positive if it was more than 10.0%. Food red 102 did not induce chromosomal aberration in chinese hamster fibroblast cell line CHL and hence is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.

Zeiger et al performed gene mutation toxicity study for another structurally and functionally similar read across chemical. Salmonella/microsome test in the absence of exogenous metabolic activation and in the presence of liver S-9 from Aroclor-induced male Sprague-Dawley rats and Syrian hamsters was performed to evaluate the mutagenic nature of the test compound Direct Red 89 (RA CAS no 6358 -29 -8; IUPAC name: disodium 8-({4'-[(4-ethoxyphenyl)diazenyl]-3,3'-dimethylbiphenyl-4-yl}diazenyl)-7-hydroxynaphthalene-1,3-disulfonate) using S. typhimurium tester strains TA1535, TA97, TA98 and TA100. The study was performed as per the preincubation assay bu preicubation for 20 mins. The test compound was used at a dosage level of 0, 100, 333, 1000, 3333 or 10000 µg/plate in the preincubation assay of 48 hrs. Concurrent solvent and positive controls were also included in the study. Direct Red 39 failed to induce gene mutation in theS. typhimuriumtester strains TA1535, TA97, TA98 and TA100 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence is negative for mutation in vitro.

Based on the information available for target chemical and its read across, Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P does not exhibit gene mutation in vitro. Hence the chemical is considered to not toxic as per the criteria mentioned in CLP regulation.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Hence the chemical is considered to not toxic as per the criteria mentioned in CLP regulation.
