In vivo cytogenetic studies on mice exposed to Orange G, a food colourant.

Abstract

Orange G, a monoazo dye, used as a food colourant, was evaluated with in vivo cytogenetic assays to determine its genotoxicity. Swiss albino male mice were exposed to Orange G through intraperitoneal injections. Bone marrow cells isolated from femora were analyzed for sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) and chromosome aberrations. The results showed that the… (More)
