mFISH analysis of chromosome aberrations induced in vitro by α-particle radiation: examination of dose-response relationships.
A multicolored FISH (mFISH) technique was used to characterize the cytogenetic damage associated with exposure to α-particle radiation with particular emphasis on the quality and quantity that is likely to be transmitted through cell division to descendant cells. Peripheral blood lymphocytes were irradiated in vitro with (238)Pu α particles with a range of mean doses up to 936 mGy and were cultured for 47 h. The dose responses for total aberrant cells, stable and unstable cells, and cells wit...Expand abstract
