PURPOSE To study the relative biological effectiveness-linear energy transfer (RBE-LET) relationship for micronuclei (MN) and cell inactivation, in Chinese hamster cells irradiated with low-energy protons (0.88 and 5.04 MeV, at the cell entrance surface). Chromosome loss was also investigated by means of antikinetochore CREST staining. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cl-1 cells were exposed to different doses of X-rays, gamma-rays, 7.7 keV/microm and 27.6 keV/microm protons. The induction of MN, the… Expand
Enhanced micronucleus formation in the descendants of gamma-ray-irradiated tobacco cells: evidence for radiation-induced genomic instability in plant cells.
TLDR
Micronucleus formation and cell proliferation in tobacco cells irradiated with gamma-rays and their descendants and the descendants that have undergone at least 22 generations after irradiation still showed a two-fold MN frequency compared to sham-irradiated cells is the direct evidence for radiation-induced genomic instability in Tobacco cells.

Changes in Micronucleus Frequency Resulting from Preirradiation of Cell Culture Surfaces
TLDR
In all experiments, preirradiation of the cell substrate led to a significantly increased micronucleus frequency relative to unirradiated substrate, suggesting that methods of cell culture vessel sterilization and the composition of cell attachment surfaces could be a confounding factor, particularly in low-dose experiments.

Radiation-Induced Chromosomal Aberrations and Immunotherapy: Micronuclei, Cytosolic DNA, and Interferon-Production Pathway
TLDR
The study of the dependence of cytosolic DNA and MN on dose and radiation quality can guide the optimal combination of radiotherapy and immunotherapy. Expand
Influence of cell environment on micronucleation in Chinese hamster ovary cells
TLDR
Observations of the persistence of micronucleus formation in irradiated CHO cells reveal that the number of cells containing micron nuclei reaches its maximum within nine hours after irradiation and remain elevated for at least five days. Expand
Cell cycle perturbations and cytogenetic damage induced by low energy protons in human primary fibroblasts.
TLDR
The number of cells positive to p21 antibody reaction was higher after proton than after X ray treatment, indicating that the 'complexity' of lesions may play a critical role in the induction of p21. Expand
Cell cycle perturbations and genotoxic effects in human primary fibroblasts induced by low-energy protons and X/gamma-rays.
TLDR
In normal human primary fibroblasts cell cycle arrest at the G(1)/S transition can be triggered shortly after irradiation and maintained for several hours post-irradiation of both protons and X-rays. Expand
Response of human lymphocytes to proton radiation of 60 MeV compared to 250 kV X-rays by the cytokinesis-block micronucleus assay.
TLDR
These studies, although preliminary, further contribute to the understanding of the mechanistic differences in the response of HPBL in terms of cellular proliferation and cytogenetic damage induced by protons and X-rays as well as intra-cellular distribution of energy and thus radiobiological effectiveness. Expand
Karyoanomalic frequency during radiation therapy.
TLDR
It is shown that micronucleus assay is a very useful tool in the assessment of biological damage that can help to identify tumor radiosensitivity in head and neck cancer patients. Expand

TLDR
Micronucleus distribution showed overdispersion relative to Poissonian statistics with every radiation quality used, in accordance with earlier observations on the distribution of acentric fragments in irradiated cultures. Expand
Micronucleus induction and reproductive death in a human cell line exposed to low-energy argon beam
TLDR
Results indicate that cell killing after 7.1-MeV Ar beam irradiation is less effective than after Co irradiation at an equivalent average energy deposition; (2) unlike gamma-rays, Ar particles are more efficient at cell killing than in producing MN; and the frequent scoring of multiple MN suggests the production of multiple damage sites, even at low fluences of Ar particles.

Multinucleate cells and micronucleus formation in cultured human cells exposed to 12 MeV protons and gamma-rays.
TLDR
The correlation between the logarithm of the surviving fraction and the yield of the studied effects has been proved to be statiscally significant and the results obtained with gamma irradiations, r.b.e. values were obtained for both effects. Expand
Tumor radiosensitivity prediction by the cytokinesis-block micronucleus assay.
TLDR
The results indicated that the cytokinesis-block micronucleus assay has some promise as a rapid predictive assay of radiosensitivity, and was established in xenografted human and murine tumors. Expand
DNA double-strand breaks induced by low energy protons in V79 cells.
TLDR
The initial production of DNA double-strand breaks (dsb) was determined in V79 Chinese hamster cells irradiated with proton beams and no significant differences for dsb induction were found between protons and X-rays. Expand
Micronuclei with kinetochores in human melanoma cells and rectal carcinomas.
TLDR
The data has been attempted to summarize by means of a numerical expression which takes into account the relation between lost chromosomes, visible as kinetochore-positive micronuclei, and the total sum of micron nuclei. Expand

TLDR
The data demonstrate the effectiveness of the cytokinesis-block micronucleus/kinetochore assay in determining the mechanisms of action of both chemicals and radiations upon chromosome structure and number and the potential influences of repair upon micron nuclei induction. Expand

Micronucleus induction in human lymphocytes: comparative effects of X rays, alpha particles, beta particles and neutrons and implications for biological dosimetry.
TLDR
It is concluded that, although the cytokinesis-block micronucleus assay in blood lymphocytes is a radiobiologically appropriate technique to use for biological dosimetry, its practical implementation may be limited by a need to perform individual pre-exposure calibrations. Expand
Correlation of radiation-induced micronucleus frequency with clonogenic survival in cells of one diploid and two tetraploid murine tumor cell lines of the same origin.
TLDR
The results are promising for the clinical application of the micronucleus assay as a predictive measure of radiosensitivity, however, it is necessary to consider such factors such as cell proliferation kinetics which may influence the correlation between micron nucleus frequency and clonogenic survival.
