Influence of Temperature on the Susceptibility of the Old-Field Mouse (Peromyscus polionotus) to acute Radiation
G. Williams, James L. Carmon, and Michael H. Smith
The LD50(30) was 1147 + 15 R for
the old-field mouse, Peromyscus polionotus.
Radioresistance, as measured by this value, was not affected by sex or
temperature over the range of 16°
The variance of the LD50(30) for the 16°C
group was significantly higher than that of the other two groups.
The time until death after irradiation of the mice that died within 30
days was significantly affected by temperature and radiation level, and their
interaction, but not by sex.
