The primary aim of the study was to investigate the impact of tar and nicotine contents of cigarettes on chromosomal damage in oral mucosa cells of smokers. We monitored the effect of smoking different cigarette types (i.e., of ultralight filter, light filter, medium filter and unfiltered cigarettes) on induction of nuclear anomalies including micronuclei (MN), broken eggs (BE), binucleates (BN), condensed chromatin (CC), karyorrhexis (KR), karyolysis (KL) and pyknosis (P) in exfoliated buccal… 
E-cig might cause cell damage of oral mucosa.
The Micronuclei Scoring as a Biomarker for Early Detection of Genotoxic Effect of Cigarette Smoking.
TLDR
The results indicate the association between BMNi and cigarette smoking, suggesting that BMNi Scoring can be a useful biomarker for early detection and screening of the genotoxic effect of cigarette smoking as a primary preventive measure for various smoking induced cancers.
Genotoxic Effects of Tobacco on Buccal Epithelium: Cell Nuclear Anomalies as Biomarker
TLDR
Tobacco can cause and increase the rate of nuclear anomaly in both smoking and smokeless forms compared to HCs and cell nuclear anomalies in buccal tissue can be used as biomarker indicating the detrimental effects of tobacco.
Association between DNA ploidy and micronucleus frequency in chronic smokers and impact of smoking cessation
TLDR
It is pointed out that there is a relationship between the frequency of MN and aneuploidy in former smokers and smoking cessation, even for a short period of time, may promote the decrease of MN frequency caused by tobacco use.
Cytogenetic damage in the oral mucosa cells of bladder cancer patients exposed to tobacco in Southern Tunisia
TLDR
Preliminary evidence that the frequency of micronuclei in oral mucosa could be a predictive biomarker for cancers in parts of the body other than the upper aerodigestive tract, such as BC is provided.
Folic Acid Usual Doses Decrease the Buccal Micronucleus Frequency on Smokers
TLDR
Administration of folic acid at usual dose give results to a decrease in the buccal mucosa MN frequency in active smokers.
Micronuclei in Exfoliated Cells: A Biomarker of Genotoxicity in Tobacco Users
TLDR
The micronuclei in exfoliated mucosal cells from buccal mucosa can be used as a biomarker of genotoxicity in predicting the effects of carcinogens.

Effect of Staining Procedures on the Results of Micronucleus Assays with Exfoliated Oral Mucosa Cells
TLDR
The results show that exposure of oral mucosa cells to genotoxic carcinogens contained in tobacco smoke does not lead to induction of micronuclei in these cells, and indicates that nuclear anomalies may be misinterpreted as micronsuclei with nonspecific DNA stains and lead to false-positive results in studies with cells of epithelial origin.
Micronuclei and other nuclear anomalies in buccal smears: a field test in snuff users.
TLDR
Until methods to better distinguish extranuclear bodies of different origins become available, investigators should use the revised protocol and should focus on agents not thought to be cytotoxic.
Exposure level to cigarette tar or nicotine is associated with leukocyte DNA damage in male Japanese smokers.
TLDR
Level of exposure to cigarette tar or nicotine (mg/day) would be a sensitive parameter in appreciation of genotoxicity of cigarette smoking in these male Japanese smokers.
Metabolic polymorphisms and the micronucleus frequency in buccal epithelium of adolescents living in an urban environment
TLDR
The results indicated that individuals having the NAT1*10 homozygous genotype showed a significant increase in chromatin buds and binucleated cells in oral cells from 11‐ to 16‐year‐old girls living in a foster home in the central area of México City.
Buccal micronucleus cytome assay
TLDR
This protocol describes one of the current established methods for buccal cell collection using a small-headed toothbrush, the generation of a single-cell suspension, slide preparation using cytocentrifugation, fixation and staining using Feulgen and Light Green for both bright field and fluorescence microscopic analysis.
