Inorganic selenium (Se) compounds having Se of different valence states were tested for their abilities to induce sister-chromatid exchanges (SCEs) in human whole blood cultures. The Se compounds tested (and their Se valence states) were: sodium selenide (Se(2-)), selenium dioxide (Se(4+)), selenium (Se(0)), sodium selenate (Se(6+)), and sodium selenite (Se(4+)). Human whole blood cultures were exposed to concentrations of these compounds ranging from 1.12 X 10(-6)-8.00 X 10(-5) M for the final… CONTINUE READING
