Abstract

Tissue damage and additional DNA changes occurs when the capacity of antioxidative systems becomes lower than the amount of ROS generated. In summary, this study has shown that heavy metals can induce oxidative stress and DNA damage. Antioxidative system of M. recutita and U. dioica seems to be influenced by environmentally encountered heavy metals concentrations. The presence in the DNA “fingerprint” of any variable RAPD profiles can be evidence for genotoxicity and used for hazard identification of environmental pollutants like heavy metals are.
