Abstract
The exposure of Epstein-Barr virus immortalised B cells (LCLs) to the genotoxic effects of gamma irradiation causes a decreased proliferatio n of the cells. The early events in this process have been investigate d here. The induction of p53 expression correlates with a cell cycle a rrest in the G1 and G2/M phases of the cell cycle within 24 h of expos ure, The molecular mechanism governing the decreased proliferation app ears to involve the induction of the cyclin dependent kinase (cdk) inh ibitor p21(CIP1) and its functional association with cdk2, (C) 1998 Fe deration of European Biochemical Societies.
