Abstract

Cellular alterations of cultured 3T3 cells irradiated with beta-rays from tritiated water were studied by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. We observed decreased negative surface charges, vacuolization of rough endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi-complex, degeneration of mitochondria, increase of lysosomal activity and changes in distribution and amount of microfilaments in the irradiated cells, that parallelled changes in cell shape.
