Toxicological effects of sodium dodecyl sulfate


The mass production and application of chemicals in different areas of plant and animal sciences cause a serious contamination to the immediate environment. Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (SDS) is also known as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and commonly used in household, kitchen and laundry uses as a detergent ingredient and others. The description of SDS is important because it is now entered into the molecular laboratories such as biochemical research involving electrophoresis. It may have some effects on the cell or tissues of plants, animals and microorganisms. Some of the earlier reports suggested for the further research in SDS with higher plants. The higher plants may supply an important hereditary test method for screening and scrutinizing the genotoxic effects of SDS. The available data was so meager that there was a requirement of more research in the area. Therefore, it may be suggested to figure out the effects of SDS on the genome content of the plants, animals and microbes.
