Title: Transplacental micronucleus inducing ability of arecoline, a betel nut alkaloid, in mice
Date: 1985
Source: Mutation Research
Abstract: Arecoline, a major betel nut alkaloid, was tested for its effectiveness in inducing micronuclei in fetal mouse blood after transplacental exposure late in the gestation period. Positive results were obtained and a linear dose-response relationship was expressed when pregnant mice were treated with arecoline at dose levels of 20, 40 and 80 mg/kg and micronucleated polychromatic erythrocytes from fetal blood were subsequently analysed.
