Abstract
Conclusions and Directions: 1. Diesel and gasoline engine exhaust particulate can contain genotoxic compounds. 2. DEP genotoxicant content is affected by fuel, engine operating condition. 3. DEP can express genotoxic activity in vitro under conditions modeling soot deposition in the lung. 4. Biologically-available genotoxicant activity of engine exhaust particulate can be assayed in short-term tests in a physiologically-plausible manner. 5. Correlation can be sought with fuel, engine design and operation parameters. 6. The help evaluate and guide the development of duels, engine design, and emission controls.
