A direct comparison of mouse and rat bone marrow and blood as target tissues in the micronucleus assay.


Rats and mice were treated concurrently with mitomycin C at a dose of 1 mg/kg/day i.p. for 3 days, a regimen known to induce micronuclei in polychromatic erythrocytes (MN-PCE) in the bone marrow of rats and mice and the peripheral blood of mice. The incidence of micronuclei was evaluated in the peripheral blood and the bone marrow of both species. Early… (More)
