Table 1 Frequencies of MMC- and BLM-induced MN with centromeric and whole-chromosome painting signals

From: Comparative analysis of individual chromosome involvement in micronuclei induced by mitomycin C and bleomycin in human leukocytes

Chromosome number Total number of MN Number (%) of MN with cep signals Number (%) of MN with wcp signals
  MMC-induced MN
8 1,262 19 (1.51) 31 (2.46)
15 1,262 16 (1.27) 32 (2.54)
20 1,262 7 (0.55) 16 (1.27)
  BLM-induced MN
1 1,387 14 (1.01) 114 (8.22)
9 1,387 10 (0.72) 65 (4.69)
16 1,387 10 (0.72) 35 (2.52)
  1. cep centromeric, MMC mitomycin C, BLM bleomycin, MN micronuclei, wcp whole-chromosome painting
  2. Implementation of cep and wcp probes for the studied chromosomes revealed frequencies of involvement of chromosomes 8, 15 and 20 in MMC-induced MN and chromosomes 1, 9 and 16 in BLM-induced MN in human leukocytes
