Mitotic Changes in Root Meristems of Lens culinaris Treated with Fusilade (fluazifop-p-butyl)

Ozlem (Dalgic) Aksoy, Nuran Ekici and Feruzan Dane

Abstract:
In this study the genotoxic effects of Fusilade (Fluozifop-p-butyl), a selective herbicide were investigated in the mitotic cell division in lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) root tip cells. For this aim, different doses (0.25, 5, 1 and 1.5%) of Fusilade solutions were used. Root tips after having grown to a certain length were stained according to aceto orcein squash procedure and the number of abnormal cells was counted in each phase of mitosis. The obtained results indicate that Fusilade had the ability to cause production of a large number of mitotic abnormalities. These abnormalities appeared in varying degrees depending on the dose. The types of abnormalities produced were laggards of the chromosomes, bridges, c-metaphase, stickiness, chromatin granulation and nucleus deformation. According to our findings we can say that Fusilade can produce negative effects on mitotic divisions in lentil root tip cells.
