Oxygen effect and influence of buffer on radiation-induced tritium cleavage from phage-T2-DNA-(methyl-3H) in aqueous solution.

Abstract

The effect of gamma irradiation on tritium release into water (HTO) from phage T2-DNA-(methyl-3H) was studied in diluted aqueous solution. The influence of O2 and of citrate and phosphate buffer was investigated. In oxygenated solutions an enhancement ratio of 3 was found. From the linear dose yield relations G values were calculated. In the presence of N2O… (More)
