Abstract:

Present study aims to evaluate the amleorative potential of Mentha piperita (MP) against arsenic trioxide (ATO) in freshwater fish Channa punctatus (Bloch). Fish were divided into six groups. G1 served as control. Fish of G2 and G3 were treated with 96 h-LC50/10 of ATO and 8 mg/l of MP, respectively. In G4, G5 and G6, fish were given simultaneous treatment of 96 h-LC50/10 of ATO along with 2 mg/l, 4 mg/l, and 8 mg/l concentrations of MP. Samples collected at the interval of 24 h till 96 h exposure period. Result reveals an increased frequency of micronuclei (MN) in G2 on comparing with the G1. However in groups G4, G5 and G6, where fish were exposed to ATO along with 2 mg/l, 4 mg/l, 8 mg/l of MP respectively were showing reduction in frequency of micronuclei (MN). This reduction in frequency of MN on introduction of MP must be due to phyto-chemicals present in the MP extract. This has been proved by the presence of well-known antioxidants viz., alkaloids, flavonoids, saponin and tannins in photo-chemical tests.
