Cinnamic acid and its derivatives are important and promising compounds in cancer therapy, because of its broad spectrum of anicancer and antioxidative ability, and with high potential for development into new generation drugs. The aim of this study was to compare the cyto- and genotoxic effects of cinnamic acid and its derivatives with the use of4Escherichia coli K-12 recA::gfp microbial biosensor strain with plasmid fusion of recA promoter and gfp gene as reporter. Obtained results indicate that recA::gfpmut2 genetic system was a sensitive biosensor to the most chemicals tested in our experiments. The cinnamic acid and its derivatives modulated the reactivity of wcA promoter in relation to control sample and significantly inhibited bacteria cells growth. In the light of our results only chlorogenic and ferulic acids at higher concentrations demonstrated cyto and genotoxic activity toward to E. coli K-12 mcA::gfp cells.
