The industrial chemical acrylamide is suspected to induce potentially heritable genetic damage. While several studies in rodents have indicated that this substance can damage spermiogenic cells, resulting in dominant lethals and heritable translocations, cytogenetic assessments of premeiotic and meiotic cells after exposure have produced equivocal results… CONTINUE READING
