for assessing genotoxicity in water.
The mean count of micronuclei
in peripheral blood lymphocytes was 3.06 +- 0.639 for group I rats while the mean count of micronuclei
in peripheral blood lymphocytes for group II rats was 6.77 +- 0.731.
In the present study, it is hypothesized that using the combined form of seleno-L-methionine and curcumin before exposure to radiation may ameliorate the detrimental effects of ionizing radiation and subsequent micronuclei
formation in bone marrow cells.
which was used for counting the micronuclei
, as follows:
Ranking in the right down quadrant, the 200 mg/L samples positively correlated with multiple parameters for peroxidation, membrane degradation, mitotic disorders, and micronuclei
Table 3 shows the frequency of micronuclei
(MN) in polychromatic erythrocytes (MNPCEs) and normochromatic erythrocytes (MNNCEs) in all treatment groups.
assay of exfoliated oral buccal cells: Means to assess the nuclear abnormalities in different diseases.
Elevated frequencies of micronuclei
and other nuclear abnormalities in buccal epithelial cells of spray painters in South India.
Although studies evaluating the genotoxicity of exposure to volatile anaesthetics have shown increased formation of chromosomal aberrations, micronuclei
and sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs), in vitro and clinical studies evaluating the genotoxicity and mutagenicity of sevoflurane show conflicting results (2-7).
In our study, we aimed to investigate the micronuclei
frequency both in peripheral lymphocytes and cervical squamous cells of patients with PCOS in order to demonstrate genetic damage, also in cervical smears.

(MN) test is one of the most used assays in different models to determine chromosomal damage caused by the presence of compounds and mixture of substances (Misik, et al., 2011; Garcia et al., 2011; Hoshina, Angelis, & Marin-Morales, 2008).
