An estimation of genotoxic effect of insecticide mospilan

The aim of this study is to determine the genotoxic effect of insecticide Mospilan in peripheral erythrocytes of fish Concentration of insecticide Mospilan (Chemical Abstracts name 1-[2-(2,4-chlorophenyl) pentyl]-1H-1,2,4-triazole), it was in first aquarium, 15 ml insecticide Mospilan / 40 liter water, in second aquarium 12 ml insecticide Mospilan / 40 liter water, in third aquarium 10 ml insecticide Mospilan / 40 liter water, in fourth aquarium 8 ml insecticide Mospilan / 40 liter water. Fifth aquarium use as a control, without insecticide Mospilan, contains only drinking water. The fish we treated for two days. We determine a higher number of micronucleus in peripheral erythrocytes of fish treated with insecticide (for each treated group with insecticide), compared with control group 4 micronucleus /2000 erythrocytes). Based on an investigation we can conclude that insecticide Monspilan damages the chromosome of erythrocytes of fish C. aureus. Keywords: erythrocyte, fish, insecticide, Monspilan induced, micronucleus.
