A threshold exists in the dose-response relationship for somatic mutation frequency induced by X irradiation of Drosophila.


The dose-response relationship of ionizing radiation and its stochastic effects has been thought to be linear without any thresholds. The basic data for this model were obtained from mutational assays in the male germ cells of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. However, it is more appropriate to examine carcinogenic activity in somatic cells than in… (More)
