This study reports the influence of acute starvation on spontaneous and cyclophosphamide (CP) induced micronucleus (MN) frequencies in the bone marrow polychromatic erythrocytes (PCE) of CD-1 mice. Groups of mice (5/sex) were deprived of either food alone or food and water for 0, 24, 48 and 72 h prior to sacrifice. Although there was no evidence of a significant increase in MN-PCE frequencies among the starved groups, a significant depressant effect of starvation on erythropoietic activity was observed. Peak levels of CP-induced (40 mg/kg b.w.) MN-PCE's appeared later in male mice deprived of food and water after treatment compared to mice given food and water ad libitum. The results indicate that starvation is detrimental to bone marrow erythropoiesis and that starvation may alter the response of mice to clastogens.
