Melatonin reduces X-ray irradiation-induced oxidative damages in cultured human skin fibroblasts.

Abstract

Melatonin is a hormone with multiple functions in humans, produced by the pineal gland and stimulated by beta-adrenergic receptors. Melatonin has been shown to have radioprotection properties, but there has been little progress toward identifying the specific mechanisms of its action. To clarify the role of melatonin as a radioprotective compound, in… (More)
