Research outputpeer-review


Free and specific activities of acid DNAase have been measured in the thymus and regenerating liver of rats after 700 r whole-body x-irradiation. Labialization of DNA extracted in the solution of increasing concentrations of sodium trichloracetate. The increase in DNAase specific activity observed in irradiated thymus is associated with increasing lability of the DNA-protein bonds.
