Resumen
Inglés Español
The herbicides dalapon and diuron, used in large quantities in Mexico, were evaluated for genotoxicity in Drosophila melanogasfer. Tests for the induction of sex-linked recessive lethals were carried out with both compounds. With diuron only, a test for sex chromosome loss using a repair deficient system was carried out in addition. Under the conditions of experiments, dalapon proved negative and diuron positive in the recessive lethal test. The results obtained for the sex chromosome loss test are largely negative. There is no indication of a true genotoxic effect of diuron in this assay.
