Using Accelerator Electron Beams To Induce Massive Cell Killing In The Extremophilic Deinococcus Radiodurans
Abstract: Background: The extraordinary ability of Deinococcus radiodurans to withstand lethal radiation effects has been verified with gammas but not with electron. Results show that electrons are able to severely damage plasmid DNA, shattering it into myriads of fragments, thus motivating the performing of D. radiodurans irrad..
