The aim of this study was to evaluate the impacts of pesticides pollution on the sequence of mitochondrial 12S rRNA in liver tissues of Mugil capito that obtained from three different regions at Kafr El Sheikh Governorate, Egypt. The results revealed ten SNPs between three sequences of different regions after alignment of these sequences submitted under accession numbers (MF817450.1), (MG210582.1) and (MG210583.1) with sequence with accession number (KU681005.1). Overall, the pesticides pollution has able to happen mutation in the mitochondrial gene.
