A single oral dose of DMPT was given to pregnant NMRI mice on day 10 of gestation and the subsequent histological changes were studied in serial sections of affected limb buds isolated from 13-, 12- and 11-day treated embryos. Differences in abnormal skeletal patterns observed between fore- and hindlimb buds as well as between embryos from different litters(More)
