Effect of Carbafuran Pesticide on Mitotic Chromosomes of Mus musculus

Manisha Kumari, Rohit Kumar Verma, Prabhat Kumar Roy


The Genotoxic effect of the carbafuran pesticide was evaluated in the metaphasic chromosomes of bone marrow cells of female Swiss albino mice, Mus musculus . Six week old mice were put into different groups(six mice per group) and treatment were done according to experimental plan (CLD15 i.e. lower dose =30ppm or 0.03mg/ml and CHD30 i.e. higher dose =300ppm or 0.3mg/ml).The test material was administered orally for 15 days in CLD15 and for 30 days in CHD30 test groups of female mice. The result revealed that the frequency of chromosomal abnormalities i.e. structural and numerical changes were11.5% in control, 74.0%in CLD15 and 99.0%in CHD30, respectively in bone marrow cells of female mice.
