Similarly, with x-ray burns, the depth of the elastosis depends on the degree of penetration of the x-irradiation. There have now been several studies published to show that cigarette smokers have more wrinkles than control non-smokers, presumably on the basis of an increased amount of elastotic degeneration--but the mechanism involved is obscure.

(2000) reported that pregnant mice exposed to 4Gy dose of whole body x-irradiation on day 12.5 of gestation was found to inhibit cell proliferation and caused apoptosis, which resulted in a high (91%) incidence of palatal clefting in their offspring.
