Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and small related molecules: Effects on Schizosaccharomyces pombe morphology measured by imaging flow cytometry

Effects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and small related molecules on the morphology of fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) are described. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are important environmental pollutants that act as carcinogens via several mechanisms of action. Fission yeast is a useful model organism for revealing the mechanisms by which these molecules affect the cell. None of the molecules studied...
