    ..Moreover, our data indicate that even minor impairments in DSB repair lead to exceeding DNA damage accumulation during fractionated irradiation and thus may have a significant impact on normal tissue responses in clinical radiotherapy. ..

    ..Hence, the spacing and quantity of DSBs in clustered lesions influence DNA repair efficiency, and may determine the radiobiological outcome. ..

    ..SSCs revealed elevated levels of DSBs for weeks after radiation, and if these DSBs persist through differentiation to spermatozoa, this may have severe consequences for the genomic integrity of the fertilizing sperm. ..

    ..Clustered damage concentrated in particle trajectories causes persistent rearrangements in chromatin architecture, which may affect structural and functional organization of cell nuclei. ..

    ..Multiple unrepaired DSBs account for large-sized foci in repair-deficient neurons, thus quantifying foci alone may underestimate extent and complexity of persistent DNA damage. Clin Cancer Res; 22(21); 5300-11. ©2016 AACR. ..

    ..The clustering of DSBs in heterochromatin following high-LET irradiation perturbs efficient DNA repair, leading to greater biological effectiveness of high-LET irradiation versus that of low-LET irradiation. ..

    ..Phosphorylated H2AX analysis of blood samples allows one to detect DSB repair deficiencies and thus enables identification of children at risk for high-grade toxicities. ..
