Chromosome breakpoint distribution of damage induced in peripheral blood lymphocytes by densely ionizing radiation.

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess the chromosomal breakpoint distribution in human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) after exposure to a low dose of high linear energy transfer (LET) alpha-particles using the technique of multiplex fluorescence in situ hybridization (m-FISH). MATERIALS AND METHODS Separated PBL were exposed in G0 to 0.5 Gy 238Pu alpha-particles… (More)
