In the present study, the effects of herbicide Attribut (propoxycarbazone-sodium) and an anionic surfactant BioPower (sodium alkylether-sulphate) on DNA amounts of Triticum aestivum L. cv. Pehlivan were investigated and compared by flow cytometric method. For the experiments, Triticum aestivum were treated with Attribut at the concentrations of 0.21 mM, 0.42 mM, 0.82 mM and 1.68 mM, respectively. In order to evaluate the combined effect of BioPower and Attribut, 0.25% BioPower was added in each of applied Attribut doses. The nuclear DNA content of these specimens was analyzed by flow cytometry. Propidium iodide-stained nuclei were analyzed on an EPICS XL (Beckmann Coulter) model flow cytometer. The nuclear DNA content (2C-value) of the treated specimens were given. DNA amount was shown to decrease in the treatment of (FD×4) 1.68 mM Attribut while it increased in the treatment of (FDS×4) 1.68 mM Attribut + 0.25% BioPower.
Keywords: flow cytometry, genotoxic effect, propoxycarbazone-sodium, sodium alkylether-sulphate.
