A temperature-sensitive Syrian hamster mutant cell line, ts-745, exhibiting novel mitotic events has been isolated. The cells show normal growth and mitosis at 33 degrees C, the permissive temperature. At the nonpermissive temperature of 39 degrees C, mitotic progression becomes aberrant. Metaphase cells and those cells still able to form a metaphase(More)
A new technique has been devised for staining the mitotic spindle in mammalian cells while preserving spindle structure and chromosome number. The cells are trypsinized and fixed with a 3:1 methanol:acetic acid solution containing 4 mM MgCl2 and 1.5 mM CaCl2 at room temperature. The cells are then placed on slides and treated with 5% perchloric acid before(More)
Bleomycin (BM) induced dominant-lethal genetic lesions in the gametes of both sexes of adult Bracon hebetor wasps following ingestion. This effect was demonstrated by decreased fertility in the unfertilized eggs of treated females as well as in eggs fertilized by mature sperm derived from treated males. Death in the unhatched eggs occurred prior to(More)
