Abstract

Combating pests that cause more than 50% of annual food production to disappear has become increasingly important. Pesticides used against agricultural pests play an essential role in increasing the yield. However, pesticides lead to various problems such as deterioration of ecological balance, contamination of nutrients, and increase of environmental pollution depending on the frequency of use. These substances, which have a genotoxic effect, can irreversibly change the structure or gene expression of DNA. Different plant extracts have been using in different organisms to determine the protective effects of natural antioxidants to reduce or prevent the effect of toxins. In our study, the protective effect of zingerone against the genotoxic effect caused by the 2,4-D isooctylester herbicide was investigated in Sönmez-2001, Köprü and Altay-2000 wheat types. For this, IRAP (Inter Retrotransposon Amplified Polymorphism) were performing. It was determined that the dose of 2,4-D isooctylester herbicide increased the retrotransposon mobility with the effect of stress in wheat types, the polymorphism rate resulting from this mobility was directly proportional to the applied 2.4-D herbicide dose, and the GTS (Genomic Template Stability) value was inversely proportional to the dose. It has been determined that the added zingerone causes a decrease in the polymorphism value. Our study results have revealed that 2,4-D isooctylester herbicide causes the least stress in Sönmez-2001 and the most in Altay-2000 type. From the data obtained from our study, it has been determined that zingerone has a protective effect against herbicide stress.
