Chemical Mutagens: Principles and Methods for Their by Mary Esther Gaulden, Jan C. Liang, Martha J. Ferguson

By Mary Esther Gaulden, Jan C. Liang, Martha J. Ferguson (auth.), Frederick J. de Serres (eds.)

Volume nine of Chemical Mutagens is composed typically of chapters discussing the improvement and validation of temporary assays to discover the mutagenic results of environmental chemical substances. those chapters contain an assay with the grasshopper neuroblast, a comparability of mutagenic responses of human lung-derived and skin-derived diploid fibroblasts, a forward-mutation assay in Salmonella, a multigene sporulation attempt in Bacillus subtilis, a selected locus assay in mouse lymphoma cells, a examine of the induction of bacteriophage lambda, and the granuloma pouch assay. additionally, there are chapters at the identity of mutagens in cooked nutrients and in human feces.

2. Isogenic Embryos Isogenic grasshoppers can be obtained by parthenogenesis in eggs of unfertilized females, a phenomenon that occurs in many species of grasshopper, in fact, in all that have been examined for it. (136) Most unfertilized (haploid) eggs develop for a brief period, but only a small proportion of them attain spontaneous diploidy, probably by endoreplication, early in development and thereby are able to continue growing and finally to hatch. (65) Isogenicity is advantageous for studies requiring a minimum of genetic variability.

An egg's surface is sterilized by submersion in 70% ethanol for 1 min. 2), and the amniotic membrane is slit over the thorax and pulled away. The head, cut off at the first maxillary segment, and the abdomen, cut at the second segment (Figure 12), are pushed aside. These two cuts not only reduce the size of the tissue for culture purposes, but also prevent the partially cut amnion from forcing the embryo into a contorted form. The mouth parts and legs are cut away close to the body, leaving the pleuropodia as the only appendages; they are useful for correct designation of the segment numbers when the preparation is viewed with an oil immersion lens.

Gaulden, unpublished data). The chromosomes of M. sanguinipes have not previously received much attention. White(l38) notes that chromosome polymorphism occurs in M. sanguinipes, but gives no details. Tsang et al,030) have established two tissue culture cell lines from M. Lm (Figure 8). There are four nucleoli, but the loci of the NORs have not been unequivocably established. Variation observed in parts of the karyotype of M. sangui- 24 M. E. Gaulden, J. C. Liang, and M. J. Ferguson nipes Nbs precludes a single characterization: about six pairs of chromosomes appear to be invariant in morphology, but the remainder show considerable heteromorphism, which will probably only be resolved with banding of the chromosomes.
