Some properties of the cell-free DNA (cfDNA) of peripheral blood plasma were assessed in 153 employees of atomic industry enterprises. The contents of ribosomal repeat (rDNA) and its concentration in plasma increased in cfDNA of the group of persons in comparison with non-irradiated individuals. The contents of satellite III in cfDNA of donors and of(More)
The influence of Glu-Trp (EW) synthetic dipeptide isomers on hemopoietic progenitor cells and certain immune response reactions is determined by their optical and chemical properties. Thus, the all L-amino acid containing dipeptides L-Glu-L-Trp and L-gammaGlu-L-Trp have no effect on proliferation of committed and pluripotent CFU-S in intact bone marrow. The(More)
An increase of resistance to radiation damage of human lymphocytes previously exposed to low doses of ionizing radiation from incorporated tritiated thymidine was observed by G. Olivieri et al. in 1984. The phenomenon was named adaptive response and its occurrence was reported by others for many animal and plant cells. In this research we studied the(More)
A mathematical model of DNA strand breaks postirradiation repair and the methodology allowing to differentiate the mechanism of inhibition of DNA strand breaks recovery after combined actions of ionizing radiation and hyperthermia have been described in this paper. Using this model and the results published by other authors for DNA strand breaks of Ehrlich(More)
Apoptosis in peripheral blood lymphocytes of healthy donors and cancer patients after gamma-irradiation with different doses was studied by the flow cytometry method. Wide intra- and interindividual variabilities of the lymphocyte radiosensitivity were observed. The radiosensitivity did not depend on the subpopulation composition of the lymphocyte pool. The(More)
Conditional lethality of the Escherichia coli polA12 uvrE502 double mutant may be overcome by a mutation that has been termed polA350. The polA350 mutation restored the polymerizing activity of deoxyribonucleic acid polymerase I at 42 C in the polA12 mutant and partially suppressed ultraviolet (UV) and methylmethane sulfonate sensitivities of the polA12.(More)
Somatic mutant frequencies at glycophorin A (GPA) and T-cell receptor (TCR) loci were assessed. The dependence of the GPA mutant frequency on doses of acute and prolonged irradiation was shown. In the case of acute irradiation the GPA mutant frequency displayed a three-fold greater dose-related increase as compared to prolonged irradiation. A dose-dependent(More)
We have found that the cells possessing the polA6 mutation affecting DNA polymerase I are unable to accept another mutation (uvr502) leading to UV-sensitivity. The introduction of the polA12 mutation determining the synthesis of a temperature sensitive DNA polymerase I into the uvr502 mutant results in the temperature sensitivity of colony forming ability(More)
PURPOSE To determine the variant frequencies (VF) at glycophorin A (GPA) and T-cell receptor (TCR) loci in persons exposed to prolonged ionizing radiation at different doses and to assess the significance of the GPA and TCR assays for biodosimetry of prolonged irradiation. MATERIALS AND METHODS The VF values were determined by means of flow cytometry in(More)
