Furthermore, some authors have examined the sister chromatid exchange (SCE) frequencies in BD patients to understand the genetic mechanism.
Sister chromatid exchange and chromosome aberrations induced by curcumine and tartrazine on mammalian cells in vivo.
Panel A shows the outcomes of sister chromatid exchange (SCE) involving a ring chromosome.
The researchers looked at three standard indicators of chromosomal damage: structural chromosomal aberrations (breaks in chromosomes), micronuclei (small nuclei consisting of chromosome fragments produced by breakage or whole chromosomes lost from the main nucleus after the cell divides), and sister chromatid exchanges (exchanges of genetic material between a pair of identical chromosomes).
Arsenical compounds are potent clastogens in many cell types inducing chromosomal aberrations, sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs), cell cycle arrest, mitosis disturbance, aneuploidy, cytoskeleton disruption, apoptosis, and chromosomal loss in both human and rodent cells in culture.
3-fold increase in the mean number of sister chromatid exchanges (the number of crossover events in a chromosome pair), from 6.
Chromosome aberrations, Sister chromatid exchanges, unscheduled DNA synthesis and morphological neoplastic transformation in Syrian hamster embryo cells.
Teniposide also caused a dose-related increase in sister chromatid exchanges in Chinese hamster ovary cells and it has been shown to be embryotoxic and teratogenic in rats receiving teniposide during organogenesis.
