Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Life forms on the planet are exposed to different forms of radiation. Such radiation may be emitted from the sun, such as X-rays, radio waves, and visible, ultraviolet or infrared light. Radiation may also come from other natural sources, such as α-, β- or γ-radiation.  Concern has also been raised about the effects of exposure to microwaves, naturally occurring radioactivity, and heat (thermal radiation).  The mechanisms by which these forms of radiation affect cell function differ considerably, but high levels of exposure can result in cell death, and long-term exposure is known to cause a range of cancers.

This issue will look at the cytotoxic effects of radiation on living systems; studies will range from those concerning cultured cells to those discussing population and epidemiology.   While emphasis will be placed on radiation-induced cytotoxicity, studies discussing radiation’s connections with DNA damage, intracellular signaling pathways, caspase activation, membrane damage, ROS/RNS production, gene activation, organelle dysfunction, and animal and epidemiological studies are also encouraged.  Reviews of the mechanisms involved in the cytotoxic effects of electromagnetic radiation are welcomed, as well as studies discussing the effects of long-term human exposure to these forms of radiation.  I encourage you to submit a manuscript to this issue so as to help shed further “light” on the lethal effects that radiation has on cells and individuals.
