Acute as well as fractionated whole body exposures to low doses (< 50 cGy) of ionizing radiation (LDR) have been reported to alter several immunological parameters in experimental animals. It is, however, not clear whether the augmentation of immune response by LDR will be observed for all responses and across genetic barriers. Since several proteins including p53 are synthesized following radiation exposure, the role of p53 and consequently that of activation induced apoptosis in the… CONTINUE READING
