 Title    Radioadapted Chicken Embryo Cells: Challenge Specificity and Alterations in Higher-Order D N A Structure  
 Abstract    Radioadapted chicken embryo cells (X-irradiation in ovo with 10 cGy at the 14th day of developm ent with priming periods of 24 h) were treated in vitro by challenge doses of 14 different D N A -and/or chromatin-interactive agents, including X-rays. A decrease in the cel­ lular damage, as measured by scheduled D N A synthesis, was only observed with X-irradia­ tion. Sedimentation of nucleoids as well as viscosity of alkaline lysates from ethidium bro­ mide (0 .3 5 -4 0 0 (ig/ml)-, novobiocin (1 2 5 -1 8 0 0 ^g/ml)-, and hyperthermia (30 min at 43° and 45°)-treated cells suggest a higher tendency of radioadapted cells to undergo positive D N A supercoiling. When D N A from adapted and non-adapted chicken embryo cells was used as substrate, neither its digestion by D N ase I nor the inhibition of DNase I activity by various DNA-interactive agents was changed in primed cells. From the previous investigations as well as from the present results it is concluded that an increase of tightening of protein-DNA interactions within the nuclear matrix is a molecular determinant of the elevated radiation resistance in radioadapted chicken embryo cells.
