Non-random distribution of abnormal mitoses in heteroploid cell lines.

We have performed absorption-cytometric DNA measurements of the DNA contents of the G0/G1, G2, metaphase, and telophase cells of the heteroploid MCa-11 and HL-60 lines, as well as the WCHE-5 line which has a narrowly restricted number of chromosomes. We found that morphologically unbalanced mitoses occurred much more frequently in telophase-cell pairs of… CONTINUE READING
