Monocrotophos is the single largest selling agrochemical in India. Sensitive biomarkers to study the genotoxic effects caused by monocrotophos in aquatic organisms, especially fish, are lacking. The fish used in this study are Tilapia mossambica, which are edible, commercially valuable and distributed all over India. The objective of this study was to study DNA strand breaks induced by monocrotophos in T. mossambica in vivo using single-cell micro gel electrophoresis/comet assay. Tilapia were… CONTINUE READING
