Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase CT polymorphism, folic acid and riboflavin are important determinants of genome stability in cultured human lymphocytes. Mitosis is just one part of the cell cycle The Mitotic M phase is the shortest part of the cell cycle Cytokinesis may be included.

These include the large inter-laboratory variability of MN frequency which is most likely miccronuclei to technical differences in slide preparation and scoring, the heterogeneous quality of data on genotoxic exposures such as cigarette smoking and occupational carcinogens or the availability of a single measure of MN per individual which may have resulted in misclassification among MN ifea levels. However, despite the uneven size of the cohorts, the increased Micronucllei in all national cohorts, as shown in Table IIIadds confidence to the reliability of the statistical model used for the overall analysis.

The procedure described for whole blood cultures is also applied for isolated lymphocyte and cell line cultures, except for the lysis step, due to the absence of erythrocytes.

Variants in the PSCA gene associated with risk of cancer and nonneoplastic micronuclek About 50 laboratories actively involved in the HUMN project or included in the mailing list were invited to contribute their databases to the cohort study, assuming that personal identification was available for all subjects and a link with local or national cancer registry was possible.

View large Download slide. Additional research is needed not only ires have a better insight into the association between the MN frequency and cancer, but ,icronuclei to evaluate the benefits of including biomarkers of cancer risk in the surveillance of populations at increased environmental or genetic risk.


Differential effectiveness of solar UVB subcomponents in causing cell death, oncogenic transformation and micronucleus induction in human hybrid cells.

RR estimated by negative binomial regression analysis.

The presence of effect modification was tested by computing the log-likelihood ratio test for two hierarchical models, the first with, and the second without interaction terms involving MN. In both cases, samples are located for 44 h in a CO2 incubator, then Cytochalasin-B is added.

To test the hypothesis that PBL MN are predictive of increased cancer risk, we assembled a large international cohort of subjects whose lymphocytes had been screened for MN frequency between and and who were free of cancer at the time of testing. A detailed description of the protocol used for measurement of MN frequency in PBL was collected from each laboratory submitting a database and evaluated by the HUMN steering committee for compliance to acceptable standard methodology Twenty-one subjects diagnosed with a non-melanoma skin cancer ICD-IX were excluded from the analyses.

Chromosomal aberrations in lymphocytes of healthy subjects and risk of cancer. Cell Growth and Division. It was possible to follow the incidence for a subset of Italian subjects 7 cancer cases; person-yearsand these data were included in the statistics of cancer incidence.

Fusion genes and rearranged genes as a linear function of chromosome aberrations in cancer. This assay has been also successfully applied to identify dietary and genetic factors that have a significant impact on genome stability 2. Only individual MN frequencies based on the scoring of at least interphase cells were considered for statistical analysis.

The presence of a linear trend of RRs in the subgroup of women, who were much less occupationally exposed relative to males data not shownsuggests that the observed non-linearity may have, to some extent, been caused by incomplete adjustment for occupational exposure.

The subjects were originally selected by the testing laboratories for cytogenetic ad hoc studies, or routine biological dosimetry because of their exposures to mutagens or carcinogens, or as unexposed referents.

MN originate from chromosome micrnouclei or whole chromosomes that are not included in the main daughter nuclei during nuclear division Figure 1. Information about occupational exposure to mutagens or carcinogens was collected as reported in the original studies, and re-classified according to the job-exposure matrix described by the ESCH group A random effect term was then included in the models to adjust for the differences in cancer rates occurring among countries.


On the other hand, this approach has also introduced a number of limitations. A feature of this study is the non-linearity of the dose—response relationship between MN frequency and overall cancer incidence, showing that subjects in the medium and high tertile have a higher risk of cancer relative to the low tertile, but there was no significant difference between medium and high tertiles.

Micronuclei in lymphocytes with preserved cytoplasm. Given the homogeneous pattern of cancer incidence and cancer-free survival in the medium and high tertiles, the analyses by country and cancer site, which generally had a number of events too low to allow the analysis on three strata levels, were performed combining these two tertiles.

In order to standardize for the marked inter-laboratory variability see Table I MN frequency was categorized by tertiles of the laboratory-specific distributions, i. To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors. Invasive cervical tumors with high and low HPV titer represent molecular subgroups with different disease etiology. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.

On the difference of micronucleus frequencies in peripheral blood lymphocytes between breast cancer patients and controls. Measurement of micronucleus MN frequency in peripheral blood lymphocytes PBL is extensively used in molecular epidemiology and cytogenetics to evaluate the presence and the extent of chromosomal damage in human populations exposed to genotoxic agents or bearing a susceptible genetic profile 1.
