On the mechanism of biological activation by tritium
The mechanism of biological activation by beta-emitting radionuclide tritium was studied. Luminous marine bacteria were used as a bioassay to monitor the biological effect of tritium with luminescence intensity as the ...
Exposure of luminous marine bacteria to low-dose gamma-radiation
The study addresses biological effects of low-dose gamma-radiation. Radioactive 137Cs-containing particles were used as model sources of gamma-radiation. Luminous marine bacterium Photobacterium phosphoreum was used as a ...
Gamma irradiation of resting eggs of Moina macrocopa affects individual and population performance of hatchlings
We investigated the effects of gamma-radiation on the survival of resting eggs of the cladoceran Moina macrocopa, on the parameters of the life cycle of neonates hatched from the irradiated eggs and on the performance of ...
Is bacterial luminescence response to low-dose radiation associated with mutagenicity?
Luminous marine bacteria are widely used in bioassays with luminescence intensity being a physiological parameter tested. The purpose of the study was to determine whether bacterial genetic alteration is responsible for ...
Time-dependent trends of artificial radionuclides in biota of the Yenisei River (Siberia, Russia)
We investigated time-dependent trends of artificial radionuclides in aquatic moss, zoobenthos (amphipods and caddisfly larvae), and three abundant wild fish species (Northern pike, Arctic grayling, and Siberian dace) ...
