To overcome the limitations of existing biodosimetry methods, we examined dose- and time-dependent gene expression changes in human peripheral blood lymphocytes after exposure to low-, medium- and high-dose ionizing radiation and searched for genes suitable for predicting radiation doses in the low-dose range. Additionally, the experiments are intended to(More)
Novel shuttle vectors named pEBP were constructed to allow the gene expression in different bacterial hosts including Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas putida. These vectors share the inducible promoters P(T7) and P(Xyl) and a cos site to enable packaging of plasmid DNA into phage, and carry different multiple cloning sites and antibiotic(More)
PURPOSE A fast, radiation-specific and highly accurate prediction of the radiation dose of accidentally exposed individuals is essential for medical decision-making. The aim of the present study is to identify small gene signatures allowing the discrimination between low and medium dose exposure of low linear energy transfer (LET)-radiation. MATERIAL AND(More)
