The present investigation provides a comparative account of cytological and developmental effects on EMS (Ethyl Methane Sulphonate) and SA (Sodium Azide) on meiotic features. Chemical mutagens have become important tools in crop improvement. These mutagens are being used to produce resistance in various susceptible crops to improve their yield and quality traits against harmful pathogens. There are several mutagens available for crop improvement and each mutagens has its important role as… Expand
Cytological Effects of Mutagenic Agents and NaCl on Mitotic Division in Two Iraqi Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Genotypes
TLDR
Mitotic index (MI %) was decreased significantly by increasing NaCl concentration, however the highest mitotic index was recorded in mutated genotypes with EMS and UV-B, which showed high percentage of abnormal chromosomes in EMS mutated genotype. Expand
Assessment of Nanotoxicity (Cadmium Sulphide and Copper Oxide) Using Cytogenetical Parameters in Coriandrum sativum L. (Apiaceae)
Present investigation deals with cytogenetical consequences (using attributes namely, seed germination, seedling length, mitotic index, mitotic and meiotic abnormalities and pollen grain sterilities)Expand
A comparative study of morphophysiological characteristics of flax in controlled and natural environmental conditions
TLDR
The study was aimed to explore the effects of seed treatment with phosphemidum on chlorophyll content and morphometric parameters of flax seedlings and plants and found that samples were found to differ in the dynamics ofchlorophyll accumulation by the stages of ontogenesis. Expand
Studies on Induced Chemical Mutagenesis in Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)

Comparison of Ethyl Methanesulfonate and Radiation Induced Meiotic Abnormalities in Turnera ulmifolia Linn. var. angustifolia Willd
TLDR
The percentage of PMC's showing meiotic abnormalities was less in plants raised from EMS-treated seeds than that of gamma irradiation, and this irregularity increased with the higher exposure to gamma rays and higher concentration and duration of EMS treatment. Expand
Enrichment of Pisum sativum gene resources through combined use of physical and chemical mutagens
The potential of induced mutations is of importance in genetic improvement of crops. In the experiments different physical and chemical mutagens were used (g-rays, fast neutrons, ethylExpand
Cytogenetic Effects of Gamma Rays and Ethyl Methane Sulphonate in Chilli Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.)
Seeds of Capsicum annuum L. var. G-4 Bhagyalakshmi were subjected to 15, 25, 35 kR doses of gamma ray, and 0.8% and 1% ethyl methane sulphonate (EMS). Effects of mutagenic treatments of meiosis viz.Expand
Cytological Effect of the Herbicide Garlon-4 on Root Mitosis of Allium cepa
TLDR
The effect of Garlon-4 on root mitosis simulates that of colchicine in the type of abnormal meta- and anaphases and the induction of polyploid cells as well as accumulation of metaphases. Expand
Gamma Radiation Induced Cytological Abnormalities in Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. var. Pusa Ruby
TLDR
Pollen sterility seems to be the cumulative result of various abnormal meiotic stages as well as of physiological and genetic damages induced probably by breakage of chromosomes. Expand
Sodium azide mutagenesis in diploid and hexaploid oats and comparison with ethyl methanesulfonate treatments
TLDR
Recovery of mutants with either meiotic synapsis deficiency, shorter plant height, or possible male sterility were recovered in hexaploid oats following azide mutagenesis, indicating that azide Mutagenesis can be effective in cultivated hexaPloid oats although the overall frequency of mutant recovery may be low compared to that obtained in a diploid species.

CAFFEINE INDUCED MORPHO-CYTOLOGICAL VARIABILITY IN FENUGREEK, TRIGONELLA FOENUM-GRAECUM L.
TLDR
The present investigation deals with the morphological and cytological studies of caffeine treated plants of Trigonella foenum-graecum, which showed a number of meiotic abnormalities and the spectrum of abnormalities increased with an increasing concentration of caffeine. Expand
Mutagenic azide metabolite is azidoalanine
Sodium axide produces high mutation rates in a number of species. Azide mutagenicity is mediated through a metabolite in barley and bacteria. Many studies showed that azide affects the L-cysteineExpand
Comparison of a radioresistant with a radiosensitive cultivar of Cicer arietinum L.—II. Differences in the number of chromosome aberrations at the same dose
TLDR
It could not be determined that a purely allelic difference accounted for sensitivity and resistance in two varieties of Cicer arietinum, but more chromosomal damage at the same dose was produced in the variety which showed more growth-inhibition, lower survival and more dose-delay at mitosis. Expand
Meiotic Studies in Two Cultivars of Cicer arietinum L. after Gamma Irradiation
TLDR
In general the meiotic abnormalities increased with the increase of radiation dose in both cultivars, however, cultivar F10 showed more chromosomal abnormalities as compared to cultivar CSIMF at the same dose. Expand
