The induction of micronuclei in gill cells of zebra fish (Danio rerio) maintained in calcium-magnesium bicarbonated waters from a reference well and 'Zimapán 5' well, the latter with an arsenic (As) content ranging from 0.395 to 0.630 p.p.m., was studied. The specimens were studied during 180 days in three separated lots: in reference well-water (negative control), in reference water to which was added 5 mg/l As(5+) (positive control); and in water from 'Zimapán 5' well, with 65 specimens/lot… CONTINUE READING
