The clonogenic survival of cells of the radiation-sensitive hamster cell lines irs1, irs2, irs3 and xrs5, representing different DNA repair pathways, was compared to that of their parent lines after alpha-particle irradiation. Measurements of nuclear area were made to calculate the probability of surviving a single alpha-particle traversal, the average number of lethal lesions per track and per unit dose, along with the "intrinsic radiosensitivity" of these cells, allowing for the potential o...Expand abstract
