In situ biomonitoring of the genotoxic effects of vehicular pollution in Uberlândia, Brazil, using a Tradescantia micronucleus assay.
The growing number of cars in large cities is directly linked to changes in the chemical composition of urban air, which has increasingly high concentrations of potentially genotoxic chemicals.Expand

Karyotype/phenotype correlations in duplication 4q: Evidence for a critical region within 4q27‐28 for preaxial defects
Varying degrees of partial duplication of 4q (dup 4q) have been reported in over 70 patients since 1972 [reviewed by Lundin et al., 2002; Rinaldi et al., 2003]. The majority of the cases includeExpand

Biomonitoring birds: the use of a micronuclei test as a tool to assess environmental pollutants on coffee farms in southeast Brazil
Birds have often played an important role as environmental bioindicators, and different species can be useful due to their bioaccumulating capacity. The micronuclei test is a cytologic technique usedExpand

Characterization of a monoclonal antibody to L1210 leukaemia.
A mouse of monoclonal cell line (L1) was produced by fusing the mouse myeloma P3X63/Ag8 with CD2F1 spleen cells immunized with a highly immunogenic subline of L1210 leukaemia (L1210/DTIC). A very fewExpand
