Non-random chromosomal involvement in radiation-induced translocations in mouse spermatogonial stem cells.


X-ray induced chromosomal translocations were studied in mouse spermatogonial stem cells by meiotic analysis at the spermatocyte stage many cell generations after induction. Using a composite DNA probe for mouse chromosomes 1, 11 and 13, in combination with fluorescence in situ hybridization, the involvement of these three chromosomes in translocation… (More)
