  • The present results were obtained in the context of an attempt to develop an in vitro test intended to assess the genotoxicity of seawater. It is based on a short-term culture method of mussel mantle explants that gives mitotic cells in which DNA damage is likely to be detected. Its principle consists of the incorporation of the seawater to be tested in the culture medium. Two factors that influence cell proliferation were studied: (1) salinity of seawater and (2) basic composition of the… CONTINUE READING
