Table 3 Kinetochore analysis after exposure of V79-cells to asbestos cement, chrysotile and gypsum (negative control) for 48 h. The experiment was repeated twice.

From: ROS-mediated genotoxicity of asbestos-cement in mammalian lung cells in vitro

Samples No of scored MN Mean K- (± SD)
Control 200 68.5 ± 0.70
CaSO4 (3 μg/cm2) 200 67 ± 2.12
Asbestos cement (3 μg/cm2) 200 71.5 ± 1.4
Chrysotile (1 μg/cm2) 200 73.5 ± 0.70
Co-exposure (3 μg/cm2 ACP and 1 μg/cm2 chrysotile) 200 75 ± 2.8
