Malassezia sp. is the causative agent of dandruff, which is the most commercially, exploited disease by the cosmetic industry. This study is aimed at the isolation of the different species of Malassezia from young adults in Coimbatore region. The predominant species isolated was M.symbodialis.
In the present investigation was aimed to study the impact of polluted water collected from the river Coovum, at Adaiyar, Chennai, Tamilnadu on the karyomorphology of chromosomes in the fish, Oreochromis mossambicus inhabiting the study area. The experimental fish fingerlings were collected from the site and acclimatized in the laboratory. Then the fishes were exposed to different exposure periods and the impact of pollutants from the water was analyzed for its genotoxic effects on O. mossambicus chromosomes. The results of the present investigation clearly revealed that the river water pollutants induced several chromosomal abnormalities such as endoreduplication, addition and deletion of chromosomal arm, fragmentation, Nucleolar Organizer Region, Ring chromosomes, condensation of chromosomes with dark staining, indistinct chromosomal contour etc. Thus this present study focuses more attention on the Genotoxicity of pollutants on non target organisms like fish.
