Persistence of radiation-induced translocations in human peripheral blood determined by chromosome painting.

Abstract

We have investigated the persistence of translocations and other types of chromosome damage with time using human peripheral blood acutely exposed in vitro to 137Cs gamma rays at doses ranging from 0.5 to 4 Gy. Freshly drawn blood from one donor was irradiated and metaphase chromosomes were prepared 2 to 7 days after exposure. Chromosomes 1, 2 and 4 were… (More)
