Cytokinesis block micronucleus assay in field plants for monitoring radiation-induced genotoxicity of the environment.

Abstract

Effective biomonitoring for detection of radiation-induced genotoxicity of contaminants in natural environments involves testing of field plants for cytogenetic changes. To increase the efficiency and precision of cytogenetic analyses of field plants that have naturally high individual variability, an improved micronucleus assay is proposed that employs a… (More)
