PURPOSE To investigate the effects of gamma-rays on male NMRI mice, in the absence or presence of vitamin E, on abnormalities in chromosome number in 8-cell embryos generated after mating with non-irradiated female mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS The 8 - 11 week old male NMRI mice were irradiated whole body with 4 Gy of gamma-rays alone or in combination with 200 international units (IU)/kg vitamin E administered 1 h prior to irradiation. After 4 days, they were mated at weekly intervals with… CONTINUE READING
