Short summary
The micronucleus (MN) test is a common tool used to evaluate cellular genetic instability at the chromosomal level. To evaluate genetic material stability in selected Canidae species, the MN test was performed. The interspecific hybrids differed from the other fox species in MN percentage. The chromosome polymorphism had little effect on genetic material stability in the blue and silver fox cells and significantly increases chromosomal damages in interspecific hybrids somatic cells.
