Morphological study of the adrenals of rats exposed on the Kosmos-690 satellite

, : Morphological study of the adrenals of rats exposed on the Kosmos-690 satellite. Kosmicheskaia Biologiia i Aviakosmicheskaia Meditsina 13(1): 12-15

Adrenals of 12 rats flown aboard the biosatellite Cosmos-690 and 30 rats used in the ground-based experiments Control-1 and Control-2 were studied morphologically. The animals were sacrificed on the 2nd and 27th days after completion of the experiments (i. e., on the 12 and 37th days after irradiation at a total dose of 800 rad). A comparative study of morphological changes in the adrenals of flight and control rats did not show any distinct differences. It is therefore concluded that space flight factors did not produce a significant effect on the adrenal response to irradiation at a dose of 800 rad.

In a balance trial lasting 6 days 4 male calves of average bodyweight 47 kg were given with their diet methionine at 2.71% crude protein and then [15N]methionine at 15 mg/kg bodyweight. The calves were killed 24 h after the labelled methionine loa...
