Abstract

Gap junction independent signaling mechanism was investigated using K562 human erythroleukemia cells. They were exposed to 2, 5, or 10 Gy of 60Co γ irradiation, the medium isolated 20 min post-irradiation and added to fresh cells. Evidence of radiation-induced bystander effect was observed wherein there was activation of p21, nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), Bax, Bcl-2 and cleavage of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase in bystander cells. The study implicates the involvement of signaling molecules released into the medium and factors like stable free radicals that are generated in the surrounding medium. The response elicited appears to be primarily via NF-κB and p21 activation.
