The side effects (cytogenetics ) of Methotrexate drug on male germ cells of Mus musculus

Abstract

In this study three doses (0.01, 0.02, 0.04) mgkg B.W of methotrexate drug which used, in the treatment of bladder cancer, were investigate in male germ cells of Mus musculus. Five tests were considered (mitotic index, chromosomal central associated, micronuclei, chromosomal aberration and sperm–head abnormalities). The results showed that,s these doses were presentel with high inhibitory effect of cell division, as well as, they induced significantly higher number of chromosomal central associated, micronuclei, chromosomal aberration and sperm head abnormalities especially after (21, 35) days after treatment at equal rate in control. We study the relationship between the structures of drug with it medical effect by study the atomic charge of each atom of drug and adenine, guanine, cytosine and uracil.
