Chinese hamster V79 cells were exposed to ionizing radiations of a wide range of linear-energy transfer (LET), including 145kV x-rays and six different heavy ions accelerated in the Berkeley heavy-ion linear accelerator. The LET of the ions ranged from 19 keV/um to 2000 keV/um. Survival curves were determined for both synchronized and asynchronous cells, using survival of colony-forming capacity as the end-point. Results with asynchronous cultures were similar to results reported previously for… CONTINUE READING
