No detectable induction of mutations could be found in two strains of Neurospora crassa after their conidia were treated with vinyl chloride, in ethanol solution and in its gaseous form. The results suggest that although N. crassa seems to lack a detectable level of typical microsomal activating system, the addition of exogenous activating systems does not increase mutagenic activity of vinyl chloride in the two strains tested. At the same time these strains were mutated easily by UV and methyl methanesulfonate.
