Abstract
<br> To gain more information on biological effects of plants, particularly herbs used in human medicine<br> and diet, in vitro and in vivo methods have been developed to predict their genotoxicity and/<br> or antigenotoxicity in various test systems. The sex-linked recessive lethal (SLRL) and somatic<br> mutations and recombination (SMART) tests are in vivo assays on D. melanogaster that have been<br> used to test both mutagenic and antigenotoxic effects of extracts from numerous plant species<br> used worldwide. The similarity of metabolic pathways between Drosophila and mammals and the<br> ability to activate promutagens make the results of these tests widely...
