mFISH analysis of chromosome aberration profiles of 47 and 144 h lymphocyte cultures following exposure to 193 mGy α-particle radiation confirmed that the frequency of stable aberrant cells and stable cells carrying translocations remains constant through repeated cell divisions. Age-specific rates and in vitro dose-response curves were used to derive(More)
We performed a study on the presence of chromosome aberrations in a cohort of plutonium workers of the Mayak production association (PA) with a mean age of 73.3 ± 7.2 years to see whether by multi-color fluorescence in situ hybridization (mFISH) translocation analysis can discriminate individuals who underwent occupational exposure with internal and/or(More)
Chromosome aberration (translocation) yield was investigated by mFISH in peripheral blood lymphocytes of Mayak Production Association (PA) workers with prolonged occupational exposure to ionizing radiation (IR). A dose threshold for cytogenetic indication of a prolonged occupational radiation exposure was estimated for Mayak PA workers using functions of(More)
The research objective is assessment of structural genomic damages in plutonium workers. The study group included the Mayak nuclear workers subject to chronic occupational exposure to incorporated 239Pu and/or external gamma-rays. The analysis was performed based on the culture of lymphocytes in peripheral blood. The yield of intra-chromosomal exchange(More)
The aim of this study was to apply the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) translocation assay in combination with chromosome painting of peripheral blood lymphocytes for retrospective biological dosimetry of Mayak nuclear power plant workers exposed chronically to external gamma radiation. These data were compared with physical dose estimates based(More)
Telomeres consist of GC-rich DNA repeats and the "shelterin" protein complex that together protect chromosome ends from fusion and degradation. Telomeres shorten with age due to incomplete end replication and upon exposure to environmental and intrinsic stressors. Exposure to ionizing radiation is known to modulate telomere length. However, the response of(More)
This study was aimed to compare mFISH and mBAND techniques in assessment of the yield of chromosomal aberrations induced by high-LET ionizing radiation. The study group included Mayak workers (46 individuals), for whom the yield of chromosomal aberrations was assessed using two methods: mFISH and mBAND. It was shown that both methods are applicable for(More)
The research objective is assessment of structural genomic damages in plutonium workers. The study group included workers of the Mayak Production Association subjected to chronic occupational internal exposure to incorporated Pu and/or external γ-rays. A lymphocyte culture of peripheral blood was chosen as an object of study. The yield of intrachromosomal(More)
