|Abstract||Chromosomal aberrations are microscopically visible changes in the chromosome structure. The double-stranded breaks are the ultimate DNA lesions for chromosomal aberrations. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the induction of chromosomal aberrations by the rubber accelerator zinc mercapto benzo thiazole (ZMBT). The experiment was designed with five groups, each composed of four Swiss albino mice. The first three groups received ZMBT at 1920, 960, and 483 mu g/20 g animal. The remaining two groups were the vehicle (cotton seed oil) and positive (methyl methane sulphonate) controls. Animals were given a single dose of test; and control samples by IP injection. Colchicine (20 mu g/animal) was administered 90 minutes before sacrificing the animals. All the animals were sacrificed at the end of 36 h by cervical dislocation. Bone marrow preparations were made, stained with Giemsa stain, and examined for chromosomal abnormalities. The results indicated a lack of incidence of chromosomal abnormalities in the test and control groups. However, significant chromosomal abnormalities such as gaps, breaks, and translocations were observed in the positive control group. Hence, the study concluded that ZMBT at different concentrations fails to induce structural chromosomal aberrations in bone marrow cells.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
