Genetic diversity, attributable to the low fidelity of reverse transcription, recombination and mutation, is an important feature of infectious retroviruses. Under selective pressure, such as that imposed by superinfection interference, gammaretroviruses commonly adapt their envelope proteins to use alternative receptors to overcome this entry block.

During direct contact with radiation sources, for example in nuclear medicine departments, the skin of the hands of workers is the area most exposed to radiation. Measurements with finger dosemeters containing thermoluminescent detectors showed that doses received may reach values as high as 100 mSv y(-1). The specific nature of work performed with isotopes(More)
