Conclusion: These results suggest that cobalt irradiation alone at clinically relevant doses does not significantly alter the cytokine and cytokine receptor profiles in human glioblastoma cell lines.

    The tumor suppressor protein p53 participates in DNA repair and cell cycle regulation in response to injuries like ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. We have previously reported that the thymidine dinucleotide (pTpT), a common target for DNA photoproduct formation by UV light, mimics many effects of...

    This article reports that David Fisher of Harvard Medical School discovered the gene responsible for tanning. The p53 gene is also a tumor suppressor but when it's hit by sunlight triggers a response in skin cells, which begin producing melanin. Skin cells without p53 did not exhibit any tanning...

    For the last two decades radiation-induced bystander effects (RIBEs) have attracted significant attention due to their possible implications for radiotherapy. However, despite extensive research, the molecular pathways associated with RIBEs are still not completely known. In the current study we...

    We studied the ability of F9 teratocarcinoma cells to arrest in G1/S and G2/M checkpoints after γ-irradiation. Wild-type p53 protein was rapidly accumulated in F9 cells after γ-irradiation, however, this was followed not by a G1/S arrest but by a short and reversible delay of the cell...

    Here we report the specific regulation of gadd45 expression in human melanoma cell lines following UVB radiation. This solar wavelength is likely to be involved in melanoma aetiology. We have previously shown that gadd45 expression is strongly enhanced in a p53-independent manner following UVB...
