The aim of this study is to determine the cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of two new synthesized complexes of rutin with Cu and Zn with possible applications in therapy as preliminary evaluation in toxicity bioassays. The cytotoxic effects were investigated in 0.5 mg/mL and 1 mg/mL solutions of the synthesized complexes Curutin and Znrutin by calculating the mitotic index and also through the analysis of chromosomes alterations during the mitosis. The cytogenetic analysis realized on Allium cepa…

Synthesis and characterization of a metal complex containing naringin and Cu, and its antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiinflammatory and tumor cell cytotoxicity.

The results of these analyses indicate that the Naringin-Cu (II) complex 1 showed higher antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and tumor cell cytotoxicity activities than free naringin without reducing cell viability.

Genotoxic effects of herbicide Illoxan (Diclofop-Methyl) on Allium cepa L.

The results indicated that Illoxan significantly increased the abnormal cell frequency at all concentrations and treatment periods when compared with their controls, and this increase was dose-dependent for the 24 and 48 h treatments.

Cytogenetic Effects of Urginea maritima L. Aqueous Extracts on the Choromosomes by Using Allium Test Method

The usage of U. maritima extracts will be less harmful than chemical pesticides in plant protection and the mitotic index (MI) was significantly reduced.

Cytological Effect of the Herbicide 2,4-D isooctylester 48% on Root Mitosis of Allium cepa.

The effect of the herbicide 2, 4-D isooctylester 48% (Esteran 48) has been studied on root mitosis of Allium cepa and simulates that of colchicine in the type of abnormal metaphase (C-mitosis) and induction of polyploidy cells as well as the accumulation of metaphases.

Antioxidant properties of complexes of flavonoids with metal ions.

AbstractThe formation of complexes of metal ions with the flavonoids quercetin (L1), rutin (L2), galangin (L3) and catechin (L4) has been investigated by UV-visible spectroscopy. The antioxidant

Cytological Effect of the Potassium Metabisulphite and Potassium Nitrate Food Preservative on Root Tips of Allium cepa L.

The effects of the food preservatives potassium metabisulphite (PMB) and potassium nitrate (PN) have been studied on root tips of Allium cepa L.cepa and caused reduction in the mitotic index, indicating mitotic inhibition and increased frequency of abnormal mitosis.

Enzymatic synthesis and antioxidant properties of poly(rutin).

The polymer showed greatly improved superoxide scavenging activity and inhibition effects on human low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation initiated by 2,2'-azobis(2-amidinopropane)dihydrochloride (AAPH), compared with the rutin monomer.

Mitodepressive and Chromotoxic Activities of Two Herbicides in Allium cepa

The present investigation was undertaken to examine the mitodepressive and chromotoxic activities of two carbetamide containing herbicides on mitosis in Album cepa.

Studies on phyto-genotoxic assessment of tannery effluent and chromium on Allium cepa.

Phytotoxic and genotoxic effects of tannery effluent and chromium (Cr) were investigated in Allium cepa and both the plants showed pyknosis condition after 168 hr, which was much higher than the prescribed permissible limit for industrial effluent discharged into inland waters.

The cytogenetic effects of the food additive boric acid in Allium cepa L.

BA significantly decreased the mitotic index (MI) compared to the control at all concentrations and treatment periods, however, the decreasing of the MI was not dose-dependent.
