Abstract

Abstract Teratogenic effects caused by hexavalent and trivalent chromium were compared in cultured mouse embryos. Blastocyst formation was more strongly affected by the two hexavalent salts (K 2Cr 2O 7, CaCrO 4) than by the trivalent one [Cr(NO 3) 3], and more by K 2Cr 2O 7 than by CaCrO 4. The hexavalent salts were also more effective in inhibiting hatching of the blastocyst from the zona pellucida and formation of the inner cell mass. The compound most powerful in inhibiting formation of the inner cell mass was CaCrO 4.
