Possible involvement of nuclei in cadmium-induced modifications of cultured cells
- 19 Downloads
Reduced metaphase number and shortening of metaphase chromosomes were detected in McCoy cells exposed to 100 μM CdS04 (maximal exposure time: 7 h). One hour exposure to 109Cd was enough to label the cell nucleus. This possibly suggests an early nuclear involvement in Cd-induced cell damage.
