The objective of this work is to obtain the correct relative DNA contents of chromosomes in the normal male and female human diploid genomes for the use at FISH analysis of radiation-induced chromosome aberrations. The relative DNA contents of chromosomes in the male and female human diploid genomes have been calculated from the publicly available(More)
The investigation had the goal to fulfill in vivo cytogenetic studies of blood lymphocytes of human subjects in a 7-d experiment with "dry immersion". Blood was sampled from 10 subjects prior to and on completion of the experiment. Analysis of chromosomal aberrations in blood lymphocytes after exposure to simulated microgravity did not reveal statistically(More)
The probability of losses of different chromosome aberrations during the dicentric chromosome assay of metaphase cells with incomplete sets of chromosome centromeres was estimated using a mathematical model for low doses of ionizing radiation. A dicentric assay of human blood lymphocytes without determination of the total amount of chromosome centromeres in(More)

Cytogenetic assay of the chromosomal apparatus of human blood lymphocytes was carried out after in vitro irradiation by heavy charged particles with high LET values. Blood plasm samples enriched with lymphocytes were irradiated by accelerated ions of carbon 12C (290 MeV/nucleon and LET = 70 keV/microm), neon 20Ne (400 MeV/nucleon and LET = 70 keV/microm),(More)
An analysis was performed of unstable chromosomal aberrations in peripheral blood of 36 cosmonauts after long-term space missions on "Mir" orbital station. 25 cosmonauts were examined before their flights to score spontaneous yields of cytogenetical damage. In all cases the doses absorbed by crews during space flights did not exceed permissible levels of(More)

The aim of the investigation was the study of cytogenetic effects in human blood lymphocytes of low doses of ionizing radiation in vitro. The analysis of unstable chromosome aberrations in human lymphocytes after irradiation by the accelerated ions 12C with the energy 500 MeV/nucleon and LET 10.7 keV/microm was carried out. Blood samples were irradiated on(More)
The paper deals with a comparative study of two regimens of Macaca mulatta continuous 2-week gamma- and double fractionated acute irradiation by the total absorbed doses of 250 and 132 cGy, respectively; data about chromosomal aberration rates in peripheral lymphocytes were correlated. Based on calculations it was hypothesized that, regardless of regimen,(More)
Cytogenetic disorders in peripheral blood lymphocytes of humans were studied in culture following single irradiation by protons with energy of 1 GeV. Doses ranged from 0.05 to 2.0 Gy. A large number of structural damages were observed. Nature of dependence of frequency of such irradiation markers as dicentrics and centric ring was established. Relative(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of the long-term (105 days) isolation of the subjects in confinement on the chromosomal aberration level in the human blood lymphocytes in vivo. The blood samples from six participants had been taken for the cytogenetic analysis before and after the experiment. The analysis of the chromosomal aberrations(More)
