  • Nothobranchius rachowi, a tropical fish that belongs to the family of the Cyprinodontidae, is introduced as a new animal for genetic toxicological studies. The karyotype of N. rachowi consists of 16 large chromosomes. This species can be used for studies on chromosomal aberrations as well as for observations on sister-chromatid exchanges (SCEs). Exposure to 120 mg ethyl methanesulphonate per litre water induced 0.66 SCEs per chromosome, whereas the spontaneous frequency amounted to 0.10 SCEs… CONTINUE READING
