Abstract: Previous work has demonstrated that the cellular response to ionizing radiation includes transcriptional activation of the c-jun early response gene. The present studies demonstrate that this induction of c-jun expression is temporally related to the appearance of internucleosomal DNA fragmentation. These events were maximal at 6 h and transient after exposure to lethal doses (20 Gy) of ionizing radiation. We also demonstrate that N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), an antioxidant, inhibits X-ray-induced c-jun expressi…
