Reactive Oxygen Species are Mutagenic to Mammalian Cells
Radiation biologists have proposed that various reactive oxygen species (referred to hereafter as reactive oxygens) which are produced during reactions between radiation and the biological system, are largely responsible for the adverse biological effects of radiations (1). Recently, reactive oxygens have been implicated in the toxic action of numerous chemicals (2).
