Oxygen Deficiency and Radiation Damage in the Insect Rhodnius

Abstract

REDUCTION in radiation damage under conditions of low oxygen tension during the exposure has been demonstrated in a number of plant and animal tissues1. This report deals with similar effects in the insect Rhodnius prolixus. Latent radiation damage in ‘resting’ cells of the epidermis of Rhodnius is expressed as a burn at delayed moulting following a blood… (More)
