Lead contamination reduces chlorophyll biosynthesis and genomic template stability in Brassica rapa L.
It is concluded that RAPD analysis in conjunction with chlorophyll biosynthesis would a powerful ecotoxicological tool in biomonitoring of heavy metal pollution. Expand
Determination of genotoxic effects of copper sulphate and cobalt chloride in Allium cepa root cells by chromosome aberration and comet assays.
The genotoxicity of CS and CC in Allium cepa root cells was analyzed using a mild alkaline comet assay at pH 12.3, which allows the detection of single strand breaks and induced a significant increase in DNA damage. Expand
The effects of dietary boric acid and borax supplementation on lipid peroxidation, antioxidant activity, and DNA damage in rats.
Results demonstrate that B supplementation (100 mg/kg) in diet decreases LPO, and enhances the antioxidant defense mechanism and vitamin status, between the boron compounds used in this study. Expand
Toxic chemicals-induced genotoxicity detected by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) in bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) seedlings.
It is concluded that DNA alterations detected by RAPD analysis offered a useful biomarker assay for the evaluation of genotoxic effects of Hg, B, Cr and Zn pollutions on plants. Expand
Evaluation of 2,4-D and Dicamba genotoxicity in bean seedlings using comet and RAPD assays.
Overall 2,4-D and Dicamba have similar effects on DNA damage detected by comet and RAPD assays, which indicated that dose-dependent DNA polymorphism was induced by both herbicides. Expand
Protective effects of boron on cyclophosphamide induced lipid peroxidation and genotoxicity in rats.
In conclusion, B has ameliorative effects against CYC-induced lipid peroxidation and genotoxicity by enhancing antioxidant defence mechanism in rat. Expand
Evaluation of the Protective Effect of Silibinin Against Diazinon Induced Hepatotoxicity and Free-Radical Damage in Rat Liver
The DI was found to induce liver damage by oxidative stress mechanisms, and silibinin reduced the oxidative stress by inducing antioxidant mechanisms, thereby showing protective effect against DI induced liver damage. Expand
Determination of genotoxic effect of boron on Allium cepa root meristematic cells
The effect of boron on the mitotic index of Allium cepa root meristematic cells were investigated. By using the growth inhibition test LD50 value was determined first and then different doses ofExpand
Increased DNA damage and oxidative stress in chickens with natural Marek's disease.
It was demonstrated that oxidative stress markers and DNA damage substantially increased in chickens with Marek's Disease, which indicated that increased DNA damage levels might be related to the increased oxidative stress and reduced antioxidant activity. Expand
Determination of genotoxicity of Fenaminosulf by Allium and Comet tests
Genotoxic effects of Fenaminosulf, fungicide and micro-biocide, were examined by using mitotic index (MI), mitotic phase, and Comet assay on the root meristem cells of Allium cepa by using SPSS 15.0 for Windows software. Expand
