Genotoxic effects and LC50 value of NaOCl on Orthrias angorae (Steindachner 1897).


Studies show that different organisms used as bio-indicators have indicated several genotoxic and mutagenic effects of disinfected waters. In this study, the 96 h LC(50 )mean value of NaOCl for Orthrias angorae was calculated to be 0.5509 mg/L. The results showed that NaOCl is highly toxic to O. angorae specimens. Statistical analysis demonstrated a… (More)
