FANCONI'S ANEMIA, STRESS CYTOGENETICS

Chromosomes from a patient with a congenital form of bone marrow failure, Fanconi's anemia (FA), are sensitive to clastogenic agents (chemicals causing DNAbreakage) like Mitomycin C (MMC). The effect of MMC on lymphocytes in culture is used to differentiate reliably between FA patients with chromosome instability and Idiopathic aplastic anemia.
