The use of a liver preparation for the study of chemically induced sister chromatid exchange (SCE) in-vivo was investigated. Hepatectomized and nonhepatectomized mice were exposed to styrene (100425) by inhalation and the liver and bone marrow regenerating cells were prepared for SCE analysis. SCE frequency was increased 3 to 4 times in the regenerating liver and bone marrow cells. Increases were seen in both nonhepatectomized and hepatectomized mouse cells. The authors conclude that the in-vivo SCE technique is suitable for the study of cytotoxicity in regenerating liver cells.
