Effect of X-rays on germ cells in female fetuses of Rattus norvegicus irradiated at three different times of gestation.

Abstract

We analyzed the effect of X-rays on the number of recoverable germ cells in female rat fetuses irradiated at three different times of gestation: 14 days (oogonia), 16 days (leptotene) and 18 days (zygotene). Our results show that irradiation significantly decreases the number of germ cells, and increases the incidence of synaptonemal complex fragmentation… (More)
