Acute Toxicity of Gamma Radiation to the Monogonont Rotifer Brachionus koreanus.


We examined the tolerance of the monogonont rotifer Brachionus koreanus in response to gamma radiation. In order to determine the median lethal dose (LD50) of rotifers against gamma radiation, we irradiated B. koreanus with gamma rays from 0 to 7000 grays (Gy). The LD50s were 2900 and 2300 Gy at 24 h (LD50-24 h) and 96 h (LD50-96 h) after irradiation… (More)
