Title: Effects of ionizing radiation on conjugation of E. coli K-12 (HfrxF/sup -/) bacteria. Report 3. Effects of neutron and alpha particle radiation. Relative biological effectiveness

Abstract

A study was made of the effects of intermediate and fast neutrons and ..cap alpha..-particles on recombination of E. coli, on the basis of a previously proposed mathematical model. It was shown that irradiation of the donor increases the probability of inclusion of the leading edge of the transmitted chromosome, recombination and prevention of transfer. The maximum recombinogenic effect is induced by 0.2 MeV neutrons; 1 MeV neutrons and ..cap alpha..-radiation are less effective. On the basis of the submitted results, it may be assumed that primary single-stranded DNA breaks are not the cause of intensification of genetic processes in the zygote following the crossover.
