Micronuclei induced by selenium, mercury, methylmercury and their mixtures in binucleated blocked fish erythrocyte cells.

The genotoxic effects of low concentrations of Se(IV), Hg2+, and CH3HgCl added separately or together (Se(IV)/CH3HgCI) were studied by determining the induction of micronuclei in the binucleated erythrocytes of Prussian carp. The frequencies of micronuclei were elevated in a dose-dependent manner in all treatments when compared to the relevant controls… CONTINUE READING
