	The effect of gamma radiation on DNA depends on what the DNA
	is in.  In a cell 1Gy of radiation will cause approximately one
	break per chromosome.  The damage of DAN in solutionNAis affected
	by the buffer.  See book by C. Von Sontagg "The Chemical Basis of
	Radiation Biology"  Taylor and Frances, 1987i
