The study is devoted to the clastogenic effect of thio-TEPA in raising recombinant strains 1 x C3 in mice (obtained from 101/H x C3H/Sn crossing). By the summer of 1993, 15 strains had reached 10 generations of inbreeding. From five to six siblings of each strain (males and females) aged 6-8 weeks were treated with the mutagen (3 mg per kg, i/p). Strain(More)
The genetic model of diabetes mellitus was studied on mutant C57Bl/KsLeprdb/+ mice. These mice were characterized by high concentrations of glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin in the blood, polyuria, polyphagia, polydipsia, progressive obesity, biphasic morphological changes in insular islets of the pancreas (hyperplasia and atrophy), fatty degeneration of(More)
Quantitative dot hybridization was used to estimate the rDNA copy number in brain tissues of five inbred mouse strains (AKR/JY, NZB/B1OrlY, CBA/CaLacY, 101/HY, and 129/JY), which were obtained from the collection of the Research Center of Biomedical Technologies (Y). In each strain, 9–12 mice aged 1–2 months were examined. The rDNA copy number per diploid(More)
A hypothesis on the genetic determination of periodic fluctuations of the sensitivity to the mutagen thioTEPA in successive inbred generations of mice has been earlier put forward. This study was the initial stage of testing this hypothesis. The mouse strain CBA/LacY was divided into two substrains, which differed in the rate of generation change. As a(More)
The ability of dimethylnitrosourea (DMNU) to induce dominant lethal mutations in germ cells and chromosome aberrations in bone marrow cells of male CBAB6F1 mice was studied. At a mutagen dose of 200 mg/kg, mortality was 19% in the second week after treatment (being 5% in the control) and the frequency of bone marrow cells containing chromosome aberrations(More)
The causes of the significant increases in the sensitivity to of clastogenic effect of thio-TEPA in bone marrow cells of inbred CBA/LacY mice were studied. The increases were shown to be associated with decreased fertility. The fluctuations of fertility and the association of fertility and sensitivity with thio-TEPA were analyzed in foundation stocks (FSs)(More)
The sensitivity of recombinant mouse strains subjected to 23-27 generations of inbreeding to the clastogenic effect of thioTEPA (triethylene thiophosphoramide) was reestimated, and their characteristics were confirmed. Six 1XC3 recombinant strains were obtained from crossing strains 101/H x C3H/Sn, which differed from one another with respect to the(More)
The sensitivity of spermatogonia of 101, TPS and CBA inbred mice to induction of chromosome damages by thiophosphamide (thioTEPA) was studied. With respect to sensitivity of bone marrow cells, these strains were ranked as follows: TPS greater than 101 greater than CBA. When used at the dose 2.25 mg/kg i/p thioTEPA induced chromosome damages in 11.4, 11.6(More)

The radiosensitivities of three mouse strains (BALB/cLacY, C3H/SnY, and 101/HY) have been compared using the following parameters: survival after irradiation at a dose of 6–7 Gy, chromosome aberration frequency in bone marrow cells after irradiation at a dose of 1.5 Gy, and the change in testis weight and frequency of abnormal sperm heads (ASHs) after(More)
