Title: NUCLEIC ACID CONCENTRATION AND RADIOSENSITIVITY OF THE SCORPION ANDROCTONUS AMOREUXI AUD. AND SAV (in French)

Abstract

The concentration of desoxyribonucleic acid and of ribonucleic acid in the soft tissues was determined for the two invertebrates of the arid zone, the scorpion Androctonus amoreuxi Aud. and Sav. and the tenebrionide Pimelia angulata expiata Peyer. The radiosensitivity to gamma rays had been previously determined: LD/sub 50/30// days is 100,000 r for Androctonus and 40,000 for Pimelia. The mean rate of nucleic acids determined in the scorpion was relatively low. A possible relation between the high radioresistance of the scorpion and the low nucleic acid concentration was discussed. (J.S.R.)
