Test on mutagenicity of some commonly used pesticides


, : Test on mutagenicity of some commonly used pesticides. Archiwum Ochrony Srodowiska (1-2): 163-171

The commercial forms of eight pesticides (Reglone, Chwastox, 30, Cynkomiedzian, Cynkotox, Miedzian 50, Sadofos 30, Poschlor, 25, Propotox M) were assessed using histidine auxotrophic strains of Salmonella typhimurium (TA 98 and TA 100). A positive effect of Cynkomiedzian, Cynkotox and Foschlor 25 was observed after metabolic activation with rat liver homogenate (S-9 Mix.) Miedzian 50 was mutagenic without microsomal activation. Results of insecticide testing with in vivo chromosomal aberration test (Syrian hamster, Mesocricetus auratus) and of herbicide and fungicide testing with chromosomal aberration test on plants (Vicia faba subsp. minor) were also presented. Results of the all used tests showed mutagenicity of the following fungicides: Cynkomiedzian, Cynkotox, and Miedzian 50 and the insecticide Foschlor 25.
