(1) The genetic response of the mouse spermatogonial stem cell to a high dose of X-rays given in two unequal fractions 24 h apart can be dependent upon the order in which the two fractions are given. When 1000 R was administered as 100 R followed by 900 R the recovered translocation yield (22%) was similar to that which can be obtained by extrapolation from lower doses and also to that of a 500 + 500 R 24 h fractionation. By contrast, when the 900 R preceded the 100 R the response was much… CONTINUE READING
