duce many chromosome aberrations. This interpretation applies to nuclei irradiated at the resting stage and at mid-prophase, but the reversed temperature effect on early prophase chromosomes is difficult to explain. The temperature effect is maximal at a critical temperature which appears to vary with the seasonal effect on the nuclear cycle. The varied response of different types of cells to temperature effects during irradiation can be attributed to the relative effects of physiological and… CONTINUE READING
