Mutagenic and antimutagenic properties of some lichen species grown in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey
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 µg/plate) to 66.14 % (C. islandica – 0.05 µg/plate). In addition, all of the extracts showed significant antimutagenic activity against sodium azide (NaN3) mutagenicity on MI values of Z. mays.
