Cytogenetic analysis of mouse bone marrow chromosomes after treatment of the experimental animals with triethylenemelamine (TEM) revealed, an overall increase in the number of chromosome aberrations A dose-response curve for TEM is given and its significance discussed. An unexpected increase in the number of rings as well as a relatively constant value for the aberrations/oell ratio in each of three dosage groups (and control) were observed. Possible mechanisms are given attention.
