We report the induction of wild-type p53 protein accumulation in various organs within 12 h of exposure to X-ray irradiation at low doses (10, 25 or 50 cGy) in rats. The levels of p53 in some organs of irradiated rats were increased about 2- to 3-fold in comparison with the basal p53 levels in non-irradiated rats. Differences in the levels of p53 induction… CONTINUE READING
