This then leads to human-wildlife conflicts, which tends...

Evidence of micronuclei in fish blood as a biomarker of genotoxicity due to surface run off agricultural fungicide (Propiconazole)

Micronuclei, nucleoplasmic bridges and nuclear buds are biomarkers of genotoxic events and chromosomal instability. In laboratory, these genome damages can be measured easily. The measurement of cytogenetic alterations in-vivo has considered an initial step in the risk assessment procedures by genotoxic agents. In fishes, micronucleus assay has shown useful in vivo techniques for genotoxicity testing, and potential for...
