Abstract:

Beta-glucuronidase activity of mouse thymocytes, at various time intervals after a single wholebody sublethal dose of X-rays 600 rad, was studied. Activity per cell showed an initial peak at day 2, a maximum by day 7 and returned to normal levels by day 11. Concomitant cell volume distribution analyses were carried out the data were interpreted to indicate a positive correlation of changes in B-glucuronidase activity with changes in the medium and large thymocyte populations.
