PURPOSE To study the relationship between the DNA content of human chromosomes and their involvement in radiation-induced structural chromosome aberrations. MATERIAL AND METHODS Human lymphocytes were cultured after exposure to 5 Gy of X-rays. FISH-painting was performed for all human chromosomes. RESULTS The results indicate that with the exception of… CONTINUE READING
