Cell cycle dependence of cytotoxicity and clastogenicity induced by treatment of synchronized human diploid fibroblasts with sodium fluoride



Cell cycle dependence of cytotoxicity and clastogenicity induced by treatment of synchronized human diploid fibroblasts with sodium fluoride



Mutation Research 290(2): 293-302



To study the cell cycle dependence of cytotoxicity and clastogenicity of sodium fluoride (NaF), synchronized human diploid fibroblasts were treated with NaF during different phases of the cell cycle and analyzed. Exponentially growing cells were synchronized by the following two procedures. (1) The cells were synchronized at G-0/G-1 phase by a period of growth in medium containing 1% serum (low serum medium). (2) The cells were synchronized at the G-1/S boundary by growth in low serum medium, followed by hydroxyurea treatment (Tsutsui et al., 1984a). Synchronized cells were treated with NaF for 3 h during the G-1 phase or G-2 phase, and for each of three 3-h periods during the S phase which lasted 9 h. Cytotoxicity, as determined by a decrease in colony-forming ability, was dependent upon the phase of the cell cycle during which NaF treatment was administered. The highest lethality was induced in cultures treated with NaF during the first 3 h of S phase (early S phase). Moderate lethality was observed when the cultures were treated with NaF during the second or third 3 h of S phase (middle or late S phase, respectively), or G-2 phase. Little lethality was observed in cultures in G-1 phase. Inducibility of chromosome aberrations of the cells following treatment with NaF was also dependent upon the phase of the cell cycle. A significant increase in the incidence of chromosome aberrations was observed only in cultures treated with NaF during early and/or middle S phases of cell cycle. These results suggest that cytotoxicity and clastogenicity of NaF to cultured human diploid fibroblasts are cell cycle dependent, and that the cells in early and middle S phases are more sensitive to the effects.
