Chlorophyllin, a sodium-copper salt derivative of chlorophyll-a and -b, was evaluated for antimutagenic activity against ethyl methane sulfonate by the hypoxanthin-guanine-phosphoribosyl transferase (HGPRT) assay. The results obtained suggest that this chlorophyllin can potentiate the mutagenicity of an alkylating agent which induces DNA damage. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
