It is generally assumed that radiation-induced lesions are produced in chromosomal material at random, and that chromosome exchanges arise from pairs of these lesions in spatial and temporal proximity. The places within the nucleus where these conditions are fulfilled have been termed “sites”1,2. On the basis of the observations that in some materials exchanges of the dicentric and centric ring types are distributed between nuclei in an under-dispersed manner (“binomial”)1–3, and that the… Expand
