Meiotic cells of Poecilocerus pictus exposed to a low dose of 0.03 M of ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) were found to be resistant to the induction of chromosomal anomalies by a subsequent challenge dose (0.12 M) of the same mutagen as compared to cells that were not pre-exposed. They responded with a significantly reduced incidence of chromosomal anomalies in… CONTINUE READING
