Mutagenic and antimutagenic properties of some lichen species grown in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey

Aslan A., Gulluce M., Agar G., Karadayi M., Bozari S., Orhan F.

 




All the methanol extracts did not show mutagenic activity in Ames/Salmonella and Z. mays MI test systems. Furthermore, some extracts showed significant antimutagenic activity against 9-AA in Ames test system. Inhibition rates for 9-AA mutagenicity ranged from 25.51 % (P. furfuracea 0.05 g/plate) to 66.14 % (C. islandica 0.05 g/plate). In addition, all of the extracts showed significant antimutagenic activity against sodium azide (NaN3) mutagenicity on MI values of Z. mays.

Key words: Lichen extracts; Mutagenicity; Antimutagenicity; Ames Test; Mitotic Index
