In this investigation, rats subjected to swim stress showed within 24 hours significant increases in both the level of chromosome aberrations and Sister Chromatid Exchanges (SCEs) in bone marrow cells. The generality of cytogenetic damage by behavioral stressors was demonstrated by exposing rats to both cold-and warm-water forced swims, to white noise, and to continuous or intermittent inescapable foot shock stress (IFS). The induction of chromosome aberrations and SCEs, to differing degrees… CONTINUE READING
