[Comparative study of the effect of radiation and other lymphatic agents on lymphoid tissue of dogs and rats: chromatin degradation, DNA and protein synthesis in cells].

It is established that lymphatic tissue of dogs shows far less degradation of chromatin after whob body irradiation (6 Gy) or exposure to lympholytic agents (hydrocortisone and colchicine), compared to rats. The fragmentation of chromatin in dog thymus occurs, like in rat, according to the internucleosome type, but affects a considerably less part of the… CONTINUE READING
