The importance of peroxide and superoxide in the X-ray response.

Abstract

Radiation produces a number of damaging radicals as well as peroxide. The chief cellular protection against these radicals, their secondary reactants and peroxide is the cellular glutathione (GSH), GSH peroxidase, GSH-S-transferase (GSHTase), and catalase enzymes. Inhibition of cellular catalase alone does not enhance the aerobic radiation response because… (More)
