Abstract

Singly isolated mammalian myocardial cells beating in culture were utilized to investigate the possible mechanism of adriamycin cardiotoxicity. Two distinct effects were apparent 24 hours after treatment with 1.7 μg/ml of adriamycin: (1) nucleolar fragmentation, segregation, and chromatin clumping, as evidenced by phase contrast and electron microscopy; (2) inhibition of mitochondrial stimulatio, as revealed by u.v.-microbeam irradiation. The two effects, nuclear and mitochondrial, at early times seemed to be independent of each other. The ultrastructure of the mitochondria in treated cells appeared normal.
