Low dose ionizing radiation produces too few reactive oxygen species to directly affect antioxidant concentrations in cells (2012)
Journal Article
Hancock, J. T., Willey, N. J., Smith, J. T., Willey, N., & Hancock, J. T. (2012). Low dose ionizing radiation produces too few reactive oxygen species to directly affect antioxidant concentrations in cells. Biology Letters, 8(4), 594-597. https://doi.org/10.1098/rsbl.2012.0150

It has been hypothesized that radiation-induced oxidative stress is the mechanism for a wide range of negative impacts on biota living in radioactively contaminated areas around Chernobyl. The present study tests this hypothesis mechanistically, for...
