Abstract: Doses of enriched uranium in testes inducing dominant lethality and skeletal abnormalities in offsprings are estimated. When intratesticular injection dose is 0.4- 60g enriched uranium; from intake to insemination, testes could receive 9.14x 10-5 - 1.38 x 10-2 Gy radiation dose. Experimental results show that with the increase in the absorption dose, the number of living fetuses in a litter decreases, dominant lethality and skeletal abnormalities rise. It should be noted that relationship between the injected dose(I zg) and the incidence of dominant skeletal abnormalities (S in %)in the offsprings can be represented by equation: S = 28.84+ 0.84I.

Key words: Enriched uranium, Absorption dose, Testes, Dominant lethality, Skeletal abnormalities
