The present study is focused on evaluating the antimutagenic properties of Schiff bases and Mn(III) complexes with L-Threonine, L-Serine and L-Tyrosine, which have antimicrobial activity. These six compounds were investigated for antimutagenic properties against Aflatoxin B (AFB) by the micronucleus (MN) assay in a human lymphocyte cell culture in vitro. The protective role of these compounds against AFB-induced MN is probably related to its doses. A mechanism has been proposed to reduce the effect of AFB.
