[Chromosome damage of human bronchial epithelial cells induced by glycidyl methacrylate].


PMID 22043701

Abstract

To observed the chromosome damage of human bronchial epithelial cells induced by glycidyl methacrylate (GMA). Chromosome aberration analysis of human bronchial epithelial cells treated with GMA at different dosages (4, 8, 12, 16 and 20 microg/ml), times (1, 2 and 3 times), and phases (10th, 30th genetation) was detected. In the dosages range from 4 to 20 microg/ml, the aberration rates (3%, 6%, 7%, 11% and 14%) were demonstrated increasingly with the increase of exposure doses, and dose-effect relationship was found. Significant differences were observed when treated with GMA three times (6%, 7% and 10%). Structure aberrations were found in the transformed 10th-generation cells, while number aberrations were mainly manifested in the transformed 30th-generation cells. The chromosome aberration can be induced by GMA in the human bronchial epithelial cells, from the structure aberration at the beginning to the lack of normal nuclear style.
