Increasing levels of environmental pollution demand specific and sensitive methods for detection of genotoxic agents in water, food products and environmental samples. Tests for genotoxicity assessment are often based on biosensor strains that respond to DNA damage induced by chemicals. In the present study, fluorescent reporter Escherichia coli strains have been developed, which contain a plasmid-borne transcriptional fusion between the DNA-damage inducible recA promoter and the green… CONTINUE READING
