Induction of numerical chromosomal aberrations during DNA synthesis using the fungicides nimrod and rubigan-4 in root tips of Vicia faba L.

The 2 fungicides nimrod and rubigan-4 were tested for genotoxicity using Vicia faba root tips as the biological test system. Treating lateral roots with different concentrations of each fungicide for different periods showed that both fungicides were able to produce numerical but not structural chromosomal aberrations. The percentage of total aberrations in root tips exposed to nimrod reached 54.39% at 250 ppm for 4 h, and 64.69% in root tips exposed to rubigan-4 at 250 ppm for 6 h. The types of numerical chromosomal aberrations produced by both fungicides included: binucleate cells, c-metaphases, sticky chromosomes, polyploid cells, and laggards. Recovery experiments for 24, 48, and 96 h showed no significant differences between the percentage of total aberrations in treated and control groups.[1]
