The aim of this work was to study the level of somatic gene mutagenesis in persons exposed to ionizing radiation at doses up to 200 mSv and determine features of this process in different age groups. Frequency of lymphocytes bearing mutations at T-cell receptor (TCR) locus was assessed by flow cytometry in 1386 persons, including 215 unexposed control donors, in 1995–2005.
