Micronuclei are generally scored in binucleated PBLs, which are cultured after sampling in the presence of the cytokinesis blocker cytochalasin B, which allows separation of nuclei but not of cells.
November 16, 2015 -- Researchers here have found that cytochalasin D, a naturally occurring substance found in mold, serves as a proxy to alter gene expression in the nuclei of mesenchymal stem cells to force them to become osteoblasts (bone cells) instead of fat cells.
