3 Terms and Definitions
For the purpose of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1 Chromatid-type aberration
Chromosomal structural damage, which is manifested by damage of chromatids break
or chromatids break and recombination.
3.2 Chromosome-type aberration
Chromosome structure damage, which is manifested by break or break recombination
changes at the same site of two chromatids.
3.3 Endoreduplication
The process, after the S phase of DNA replication, the nucleus does not enter the
6 Test Methods
6.1 Test substance and instrument reagent
6.1.1 Test substance
Distilled water is preferred as the solvent. If the test substance is insoluble in water, it
can be prepared into an emulsion or suspension with edible oil, edible starch, and 0.5%
carboxymethyl cellulose sodium. The test substance shall be prepared fresh before
gavage, unless some data show that it is stable when stored in solution (or emulsion,
suspension). If it is not a common solvent, there shall be reference materials and
explain its ingredients and the reason for the selection of solvent.
6.1.2 Instruments and reagents Instruments: biological microscope, constant temperature water bath, etc. 0.1% colchicine: place in the brown bottle, and store in the refrigerator at 4°C. Giemsa dye solution:
Giemsa dye: 3.8g;
Methanol: 375mL;
Glycerol: 125mL.
Preparation: place Giemsa dye and a small amount of methanol in a mortar and grind
carefully; then add methanol to 375mL; after it is completely dissolved, add 125mL of
glycerol and mix well. Put it in a 37°C thermostat for 48h. Shake several times during
the heat preservation period to promote the full dissolution of the dye. Take out and
filter; and use it after two weeks. Phosphate buffer solution (pH 6.8):
1/15mol/L disodium hydrogen phosphate solution: take 9.47g of Na2HPO4 and dissolve
it in 1000mL of distilled water.
1/15mol/L potassium dihydrogen phosphate solution: take 9.07g of KH2PO4 and
dissolve it in 1000mL of distilled water.
Mix 50 mL of disodium hydrogen phosphate solution with 50 mL of potassium
dihydrogen phosphate solution; measure and adjust to pH 6.8 with a pH meter. Giemsa application solution: take 1 portion of Giemsa dye solution and 9
portions of phosphate buffer solution (pH 6.8); mixed and prepared for current use.
6.3.2 Limit test
If a single exposure (or two exposures on the same day) dose is above 2000mg/kg
body weight, there is still no observable toxic effect, and no genotoxicity is expected
based on the data of structurally related compounds; then 3 doses are not required for
test. If the exposure time is within 14d, the dose is set to 2000 mg/kg body weight; if
the exposure time is longer than 14d, the dose is set to 1000 mg/kg body weight. If the
human’s possible (expected) exposure is too large, the limit test shall be carried out at
a dose level of 5000 mg/kg body weight or a higher dose shall be selected.
6.3.3 Setting of the control group For each test, each gender shall set up corresponding positive and negative
controls (solvent/vehicle). Except that the test substance is not used for exposure, the
animals in the control group shall be operated in the same way as the animals in the
exposure group. The positive control group shall be expected to detect an increase in
chromosome structure aberrations in vivo that exceeds the background value to
confirm the sensitivity of the test system. The route of exposure of the positive control
may be different from the route of exposure of the test substance, and sampling is only
performed at a single time point. It is optimal to use a positive control related to the
chemical structure of the test substance. Refer to Appendix A for commonly-used
positive controls. The negative control is a solvent control. Based on the background control data
of the variation between animals and the frequency of chromosomal aberrations, it is
judged whether a negative control group is set at each sampling time point and treated
in the same way as the exposure group. If the negative control adopts a single
sampling, the most suitable sampling time is the first sampling time. If there is no
historical control data to prove that the used solvent is non-cytotoxic or non-mutagenic,
a blank control shall be added.
6.4 Methods of exposure
6.4.1 Gavage is often used for exposure, and the positive control group may also be
injected intraperitoneally. It is recommended that the test substance be exposed to the
poison once. The test substance with a large sample amount may also be exposed to
the poison in several times, such as the interval of no more than 6h in the same day,
and the exposure is carried out twice. The recommended time for the first sample
collection is 12h~18h after the last exposure (1.5 times the normal cell cycle); and the
recommended time for the second sample collection is 24h after the first sampling time.
6.4.2 Other methods of exposure shall explain the reasons. If the exposure is more
than one day, one sampling can be taken 12h~18h after the last exposure (1.5 times
the normal cell cycle).
of section-making often leads to changes in the proportion of metaphase with
chromosome loss, the number of chromosomes contained in the counted cells shall
be controlled at 2n±2.
6.7.3 The observation items include:
a) Changes in the number of chromosomes: aneuploidy, polyploidy, endoduplication;
b) Changes in the structure of chromosomes: breaks, tiny bodies, loops with
centromeres, loops without centromeres, monomer exchanges, double tiny
bodies, non-specific type changes (such as crushing, slender centromeres,
adhesion), etc.
7 Test Results and Evaluation
7.1 Test results
Show the data of each animal in a table. The test unit is each animal. For each animal,
the following items shall be evaluated, such as the number of cells counted, the
number of aberrations in each cell and the percentage of cells with chromosomal
structural aberrations. The number and frequency of different types of chromosome
structural aberrations in the exposure group and the control group shall be listed. The
gaps shall be counted and reported separately, but generally not included in the total
aberration frequency. If there is no evidence of gender difference, the data of male and
female animals may be combined for statistical analysis. Statistical analysis may be
tested by χ2, or use statistical methods such as Fisher test, etc.
7.2 Evaluation of test results
7.2.1 The standard for judging a positive result include: when comparing exposure
group with the negative control group, and the increase of chromosome aberration rate
has statistically significance and there is significant dose-response relationship, then it
may be confirmed as a positive result. If the statistical difference is significant, but there
is no dose-response relationship, the test shall be repeated; and if the difference may
be repeated, it may be regarded as positive. The evaluation shall be analysed from
two aspects of biological significance and statistical significance.
7.2.2 The test substance whose result does not meet the above criteria may be
considered as a negative result in this test system.
7.2.3 The increase in polyploidy indicates that the test substance may induce
chromosomal numerical aberration. Increased endoreduplication indicates that the test
substance may inhibit cell cycle progression.
