Micronucleus Test Good Biomarker for Determination of Genetic Changes in Aquatic Organism

Micronucleus experiments are mutagenicity-testing systems used to identify chemicals and pollutants that cause DNA particles to change, such as micronuclei in the cytoplasm of Interphase cells. Damage caused by genotoxic pollutants on DNA is the first effect that occurs in aquatic organisms. This paper reported that the micronucleus test gives sensible results in monitoring the chemical and anthropogenic pollution.
