Cells from small (sigma) and large (lambda) trifluorothymidine-resistant (TFTr) colonies induced by chemical mutagen treatment of TK+/-L5178Y mouse lymphoma cells were examined for chromosomal abnormalities. Analysis of G-banded metaphase chromosomes from 34 sigma-TFTr colonies revealed that cells from 20 (59%) possessed one or more chromosomal abnormalities. The most frequent (16/20 colonies) abnormality observed in cells from sigma-TFTr colonies involved the addition of extra chromatin to the… CONTINUE READING
