Cell cycle dependent G2 delay and killing of L929 cells after exposure to 241Am alpha particles.

Abstract

Survival and G2 delay of L929 mouse fibroblasts exposed to 3.4-MeV alpha particles depend on the cell age at the time of irradiation. Greatest sensitivity for both endpoints has been found at the G1/S transition: The surviving fraction of G1/S cells is reduced to 0.11 following 1 Gy of alpha particles compared to 0.31 for early G1 cells. The G2 + M transit… (More)
