Abstract

It is aimed to examine the state of the oxidant-antioxidant system in the liver of guinea pig caused by ionizing radiation at two different dose levels in the early period. The research was carried out on guinea pigs irradiated with the doses of 8 Gy (group 2) or 15 Gy (group 3) (single dose/whole body) in comparison with control group (group 1). The levels of thioredoxin reductase (TR) in the kidney was measured. The results obtained by non-irradiated and irradiated (8 Gy and 15 Gy) kidneys on guinea pigs indicated that; in 8-15 Gy irradiated animal kidneys TR activity elevated significantly (p<0.001) when compared to the controls, but there was no difference between 8 Gy and 15 Gy irradiated animal groups. The data have shown that gamma-irradiation results in significant increase in TR activity at two different dose levels.
