The data have been obtained concerning the mutagienic effect of low-dosed enviromental and incorporated irradiation on germ cells of mice males and females. The high frequency of preimplantation embryo death has been shown for mice progeny, premeiotic germ cells at the stages of their multiplication and growth having been influenced by low-dosed irradiation. The critical developmental stages a prenathal one for females and the first, postnathal days for males, because of the formation of most stem spermatagonia in testis taking start at this period.
