Abstract The killing of individual cells exposed to ionizing radiation has, in historic terms, been considered to be a consequence of direct hits by the radiation, but recent research has shown that cells in populations do not have to be directly exposed to radiation in order to suffer damage. In irradiated cell populations, this ‘bystander’ effect can be mediated by long-range transmission of toxic molecules or by direct transfer of molecules between cells. An important dynamic cellular… CONTINUE READING
