In the CBMN assay, MNi are scored in binucleated cells once divided, since cytokinesis has been arrested (Fenech, 2000).
Increase in hepatocyte and nuclear volume and decrease in the population of binucleated cells in preneoplastic foci of rat liver: a stereological study using the nucleator method.
Rare, binucleated cells are present, and some cells do not necessarily display signet-ring morphology.
The authors used the cytokinesis block micronucleus (CBMN) assay, a well-validated biomarker of cancer risk in adults, to determine micronucleus (MN) frequencies in both mononucleated (MONO) and binucleated (BN) T lymphocytes and to derive the cytokinesis block proliferation index (CBP1) in full-term and preterm newborns and their mothers.
OBJECTIVE: We investigated the formation of micronuclei (MN) in full-term and preterm newborns and their mothers from the Rhea cohort (Crete), applying for the first time in cord blood a validated semiautomated analysis system, in both mono- and binucleated T lymphocytes.

For instance, when blood samples were collected from workers at an e-waste dismantling site in China, the serum levels of PBDEs and the frequency of micronucleated and binucleated cells were significantly higher than chose from a similar unexposed cohort (Yuan et al.
In addition, the presence of binucleated or multinucleated cells in the epithelial component without the nuclear features of malignancy would favor a mesothelial origin.
To determine the frequency of binucleated cells with MN and the total number of MN, a total of 1,000 binucleated cells with well-preserved cytoplasm (500/replicate) were scored for each subject.
Interestingly, after repetitive Cr(VI) exposure, we occasionally observed macrophages that were either binucleated or at the anaphase stage of mitosis (Figure 21).
