At the present study, Allium cepa root tips were collected during 2,6 and 24 hrs after treated with selected concentrations (1.0,3.0,5.0 and 7.0 g/L) of Mono-Sodium Glutamate (MSG) that used as flavour enhancer in foods. MSG induced mitodepression chromosomal aberrations such as bridges, fragments, disturbance, sticky chromosomes and other morphological abnormalities like enlargement cells. In this study we amid to determine the inhibitory effect of oil extract (1.25 μl/ml) from two medical…

Chemical Composition, In Silico and In Vitro Antimutagenic Activities of Ethanolic and Aqueous Extracts of Tigernut (Cyperus esculentus)

Tigernut, also known as Cyperus esculentus, is said to be high in nutritional and medicinal value. The purpose of this study was to determine the C. esculentus’s antimutagenic activity. The ethanolic

Genotoxicity of Monosodium Glutamate: A Review on its Causes, Consequences and Prevention

The data available on Google scholar, NCBI, PUBMED, EMBASE, Wang fang databases, meta-analysis and Web of Science indicated that long-term consumption of MSG is associated with metabolic diseases, neurological and reproductive organ defects and MSG has the ability to induce genotoxicity.

Antioxidant and haematological potentials of fruit wastes from Terminalia catappa and observable trophic effect on weight of wistar rats after exposure to monosodium glutamate

Haemoglobin (Hb) and packed cell volume (PCV) in MSG-extract co-administered rats showed a positive ameliorative effect of the extract in a dose dependent manner when compared to MSG group, and weight gain following extract administration was not dose dependent.

MEASUREMENT OF DNA DAMAGE, OXIDATIVE STRESS, AND GENE EXPRESSION OF β-CATENIN AND P53 GENES IN LIVER AND BRAIN OF MALE MICE RECEIVING MONOSODIUM L-GLUTAMATE MONOHYDRATE

Oral consumption of MSG leads to oxidative stress-mediated DNA damage and apoptosis, and these were accompanied by a significant decline in glutathione (GSH) and a ratio of oxidized and reduced GSH in both tissues.

EVALUATION OF GENOTOXIC EFFECTS OF BAKING POWDER AND MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE USING ALLIUM CEPA ASSAY

The results of the present study clearly prove the sensitivity of Allium test and hence substantiate its use as a cytogenetic assay to assess the genotoxic effects of chemicals that are consumed as food additives or preservatives.

The results suggest that the observed activities of FDFJ of M. fragrans may be due to the quantity and quality of phenolic compounds with antioxidant activity, suggesting its use in preventing the DNAdamaging effects of mutagens.

Genotoxic and cytotoxic effects of food flavor enhancer, monosodium glutamate (MSG) using Allium cepa assay

Genotoxic and cytotoxic effects of monosodium glutamate (MSG) used as flavor enhancer in foods was analyzed using the Allium cepa assay and there was no significant difference in total chromosomal aberrations in all experimental set up as compared to control.

Relative Mutagenecity of Some Food Preservatives on Plant Cells

Reduction in the mitotic activity and induction of chromosomal aberrations were dose- dependent at all concentrations and treatment periods and the effect on protein banding pattern and isozyme variations were investigated.

CYTOGENETIC STUDIES OF FOOD PRESERVATIVE IN ALLIUM CEPA ROOT MERISTEM CELLS

The results indicate that the food preservative has reduced mitotic division in A. cepa compared with the respective control and it is found that chromatid break and multiple breaks increase with dosage.

Mutagenecity testing of phamarceutical effluents on Allium cepa root tip meristems

The results obtained showed significant reduction in the number of roots and the length of roots grown on the effluents and their dilutions and the effects of the cytotoxic and genotoxic substances in these wastewaters discharged into the environment on biolife are discussed.

Adriamycin induced genetic toxicity as demonstrated by the Allium test.

The present results suggest that adriamycin inhibits not only DNA synthesis but also protein synthesis, either directly or indirectly by its binding with DNA resulting in the prevention of its unwinding for transcription of spindle protein messengers.
