We studied the effects of irradiation with a single fraction of high-energy electrons, in the absorbed dose range used in radiotherapy, on features related to the rat mesenteric mast-cell (MC) population. Such features were energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis for zinc, light and transmission electron microscopic changes, histamine content, and secretory… CONTINUE READING
