A DNA Bank of People Having Experienced Occupational Irradiation: Aims and Prospects

A DNA Bank of People Having Experienced Occupational Irradiation: Aims and Prospects A DNA bank was created to preserve the genetic material of staff of the first Russian atomic plant, Production Association (PO) Mayak, who were exposed to chronic external γ-irradiation at various doses in the early years of plant operation. Some of the workers experienced combined irradiation from external and internal (incorporated plutonium-239) sources. The unique genetic material of the subjects and their children can be used to study the remote consequences of irradiation by means of modern molecular-genetic techniques. At present, the bank contains the genetic material of 500 people. A database was constructed to include medical, demographic, professional, and dose characteristics of each individual and quantitative and qualitative parameters of each DNA preparation. The bank is continuously augmented with new DNA samples of the irradiated people and members of their families. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
