In the most comprehensive analysis of its type published to date, scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have found that exposing human skin tissue cells, or fibroblasts, to low doses of ionizing radiation regulates phosphorylation of proteins that are involved in a wide range of biological processes. In short, the body can sense low doses of radiation and activate the cell signaling pathways needed to respond to any induced cellular damage.
