Abstract

The protein-synthesizing system of hippocampal (CA1, CA3) and sensorimotor cortex neurons is damaged less and recovers much quicker in rats exposed to 8 Gy of gamma-radiation under hypoxia/hypercapnia (body temperature 16-18°C) than under usual conditions, as evidenced by microfluorimetry and electron microscopy. The radioprotective effect does not cover the membrane structures (endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex), and their restoration is not so prompt.
