OBJECTIVE The passage of ionizing radiation in living cells creates clusters of damaged nucleotides in DNA. In this study, DNA strand breaks induced by the beta particle of iodine-131 (I-131), have been determined experimentally and compared to Monte Carlo simulation results as a theoretical method of determining(131)I damage. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this experimental study, in order to create single strand breaks (SSB) and double strand breaks (DSB) in the DNA, glioblastoma (GBM) cells were… CONTINUE READING
