Persistence of SCE-inducing lesions in lymphocytes of mice exposed to diaziquone.


Male C57B1/6 mice were injected i.p. with either 1.25 or 5.0 mg/kg diaziquone (AZQ) and killed at various time intervals from 1 to 99 days post treatment for examination of sister chromatid exchange (SCE) persistence in the peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and splenocytes. SCE frequencies were found to decay steeply during the first week after exposure… (More)
