CHO-K1 cells were irradiated in G0/G1-phase with 150 kV X-rays. Single chromosomes isolated from metaphase cells and stained with DNA intercalating dye DAPI were analyzed in the ICP 22 with a modified flow chamber. In order to study dose-dependent changes in the flow karyotypes, they were split into peak- and background-portions by an iterative fit(More)
Irradiation temperature, changed from 37 degrees C to 4 degrees C, acts as a dose-modifying factor with regard to the dose-yield relationship for dicentric chromosome aberrations in human lymphocytes irradiated with 150 kV X-rays. The temperature dependence of the aberration yield observed at constant dose is S-shaped, with a sharp rise near 15 degrees C(More)
Dicentric chromosome aberration yields have been measured after single-exposure and split-dose irradiations of human lymphocytes with 150 kV X-rays. Various temperature programmes between 4 and 37 degrees C were applied before, during and after irradiations and in the radiation-free interval. It was found that chromatin lesion repair was completely(More)
Repair kinetics observable at the level of exchange-type chromosomal aberrations (dicentric chromosomes), using fractionation and delayed-plating techniques, have been compared with repair kinetics of radiation-induced DNA double-strand breaks, measured with PFGE, and with repair kinetics of all strand breaks, measured with the alkali-unwinding technique.(More)
In unstimulated lymphocytes the enhancing effect of ara C on the yield of X-ray-induced dicentric aberrations was maximal if ara C was added immediately or up to 2 h after irradiation. When ara C was added later the enhancing effect decreased and practically vanished by 5 h. In stimulated lymphocytes the ara C effect declined faster and practically vanished(More)
The induction of chromosome aberrations by X-rays was investigated in synchronized quiescent and proliferating CHO-K1 cells. Kinetics of chromosome lesion repair was studied using the method of fractionated irradiation. In both cell types the time-course of repair during fractionation intervals followed first-order kinetics. Comparison with kinetic data(More)
