Effect of chronic irradiation on the humoral immune response of a marine fish, the eelpout (Zoarces viviparus L.).


Eelpout (Zoarces viviparus), a marine fish, were exposed to gamma-radiation at a dose-rate of 2.0 mGy h-1. They were injected with the antigen trinitrophenyl-keyhole limpet haemocyanin (TNP-KLH) and their specific humoral immune response to the TNP hapten measured. There were no differences in the primary antibody response between unirradiated controls and… (More)
