  author={Gennaro Manna and Sudeshna Pal},
The genotoxic principle associated with the tubercule bacilli, Mycobacterium tuberculosis has been investigated using bone marrow chromosome aberration frequency as the indicator in different sets of experimentally treated mice against controls. The data scored from 400 metaphase plates of 2 male and 2 female mice on 7th day after injection in each series revealed the average aberration frequency of 27.50% in log culture, 11.25% in culture filtrate, 17.50% in isolated bacteria in saline… Expand

The influence of immunization with tularemia live vaccine on the clastogenic action of cyclophosphamide in mice.
It is proposed that the anticlastogenic effect observed in the experiment is due to a reduction in the cytochrome P-450 activity induced by TLV immunization. Expand


A colchicine, hypotonic citrate, squash sequence for mammalian chromosomes.
The method was developed for bone marrow of mice but is applicable to other tissues and other species of small mammals. Mice are injected intraperitoneally with 0.5 ml of 0.025% colchicine solutionExpand
System for the evaluation of the risk from chemical mutagens for man: basic principles and practical recommendations.
From the hygienic aspect it is recommended, as a temporary measure, to evaluate a chemical mutagen and to prohibit or limit its use if its average population dose produces a 0.1% or greater increase in the spontaneous level of mutations. Expand
