Young adult male B6CF1 mice were exposed to single whole body doses of fission neutrons or 60Co gamma rays. Postspermatogonial dominant lethal injury, incidence of reciprocal chromosome translocations induced in spermatogonia, incidence of abnormal epididymal sperm 4-6 weeks after exposure, and testis weight loss 3-6 weeks after exposure were all measured. Emphasis is on response to neutron doses between 1 and 40 rad, and gamma-ray doses between 22.5 and 145 rad, although more limited data from… CONTINUE READING
