[Experimental contribution to the study of the anticellular effect of diphenyl mercury (author's transl)].

Abstract

The effect of diphenyl mercury on the chick embryo erythroblastic cell population and rat's bone marrow cells has been studied. The predominant cytologically observed effect of this compound was the c-mitotic action. Besides the well known capacity of spindle inactivation, the diphenyl mercury was able to induce chromosome fragmentation; a radiomimetic action of the compound is suggested.
