Cytol. effects of bromophos (I) [2104-96-3], an organophosphate pesticide, on meristematic cells of Allium cepa were studied to evaluate its genetic damage. Mitostatic effects of I and the mitotic abnormalities induced were studied. The stathmokinetic action of I was more pronounced and the abnormalities induced were dose-dependent. I induced the formation of micronuclei, binucleate cells, and stickiness of chromosomes, inhibited spindle formation, and also induced clastogenic effects such as breaks, fragments, and bridges.
