Tube like structures
|Abstract:||Present study reports cytotoxicity of Carbon Nanoparticles to <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Navicula</i> and <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Isochrysis</i>. Cytotoxicity was determined by morphological changes, cell density count, Acid Phosphatase and Lactate dehydrogenase assays. Carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) promote concentration as well as exposure dependent toxicity to Navicula & Isochrysis, which exhibited cell death, necrotic changes such as cell shrinkage and pycnosis of nucleus. Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) & Acid Phosphatase (ACP) activities elevated significantly, in both algae, in a dose and exposure dependant manner. In Navicula and Isochrysis, LDH activity was elevated by 42.3% and 60.7%, and 44.5% and 90.3%, on exposure to 0.05 mg/mL and 1 mg/mL CNPs for 10 days respectively. Similarly, ACP activity in both Navicula and Isochrysis was elevated by 34.6% and 55.4%, and 11.7% and 18.5%, on exposure to 0.05 mg/mL and 1 mg/mL of CNPs for 10 days respectively, as compared to the controls. The occurrence of tube like structures under the influence of CNPs in algae was also observed.|
