      RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) are chemical compounds that can be made by the body. They can also be made in a laboratory. RNA and DNA are used as medicine. People take RNA/DNA combinations to improve memory and mental sharpness, treat or prevent Alzheimer's disease, treat depression, increase energy, tighten skin, increase sex drive, and .   In plants, UV-B radiation damages cell membranes and all organelles within the cell, including the chloroplasts, mitochondria, and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) within the nucleus. Damage to these cell organelles directly or indirectly affects basic plant metabolic processes, such as photosynthesis, respiration, growth, and reproduction. Experiments have been carried out to attempt to establish the nature of the after-effect of X irradiation on deoxyribonucleic acid in oxygen. The change which occurs during 48 hours after the cessa Cited by: DNA, abbreviation of deoxyribonucleic acid, organic chemical of complex molecular structure that is found in all prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and in many viruses. DNA codes genetic information for the transmission of inherited traits. Read More on This Topic. nucleic acid: Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) DNA is a polymer of the four nucleotides.

    Although radiation has the potential to damage structures inside a cell, the structure of most concern is DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). DNA contains the genetic information that allows each cell to function, grow, and reproduce. Image to right: NASA's Space Radiation Health Project strives to achieve an acceptable level of risk from exposure to space radiation for future astronauts Credit: NASA An important safety concern for long term space travel is the health effects from space radiation. Fundamentals of Radiation Safety and Protection To understand how to protect soldiers from ionizing radiation *, it is necessary to understand its characteristics, how it interacts with tissues in the body, and the effects that these interactions may have on immediate and long-term health. Effects, known as early effects, appear when too many cells have been destroyed. Other, late effects may occur if certain altered cells proliferate uncontrollably and lead to cancer. Radiation is Ionizing: it strips atoms of electrons. Each collision produces two ions: a free electron which is negatively charged and an atom which has lost an.

    Deoxyribonucleic acid definition, DNA. See more. deoxyribonucleic acid; a nucleic acid that is the main constituent of the chromosomes of all organisms (except some viruses). DNA is Deoxyribonucleic acid, a complex, usually helical shaped chemical compound that is the substance that makes the organic matter of genes and chromosomes. Splitting DNA molecules in the brain is associated with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease, and cancer. During radiation intervention, normal cells are besides damaged. Radiation affects the atoms that make up the cells. It affects them straight and indirectly. Directly when it alters or destroys the Deoxyribonucleic acid molecule thereby ensuing in the inability of the cell to reproduce accurately (mutate) or non at all and dies. Ionizing radiation is normally utilized in our day-to-day lives in little sums e.g. X raies. However, radiation exposure consequences in harmful effects on Deoxyribonucleic acid construction, taking to establish alterations (oxidization, alkylation), cross-link formation or bulky lesions.

When cells divide, their DNA should also double. Damaging the DNA, radiation therapy blocks the process of growth and any increase in the number of such cells.

This work studies the mechanism by which radiation causes biological damage. In general radiation is able to cause damage through the direct effect of radiation or through the indirect effect of free radicals.

Either method causes breaks in the phosphate-sugar backbone of the deoxyribonucleic acid. The interaction between ionizing radiation and the target molecule that is most likely to occur is the.

In your paper, include the following items: Analyze the chemistry of DNA. Describe alpha, beta, and gamma radiation. Explain the effects of radiation on DNA. The direct and indirect mechanisms for ionising-radiation-induced damage to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) have been probed by e.s.r. spectroscopy and by analysis for strand breaks.

Irradiation of frozen aqueous DNA was shown by e.s.r. spectroscopy to give guanine and thymine ion radicals (G˙ and T˙) together with hyd. Exposure of frozen, deoxygenated, aqueous solutions of DNA to Co γ-rays at 77 K results in the formation of guanine-centred radical-cations(G˙) and thymine-centred radical-anions (T˙).

Both these primary centres are thought to be capable of inducing DNA strand-breaks, both single (SSB) and double (DSB). When low co. The increased use of radioisotopes has led to increased concerns over the effects of these materials on biological systems (such as humans). All radioactive nuclides emit high-energy particles or electromagnetic waves.

When this radiation encounters living cells, it can cause heating, break chemical bonds, or ionize molecules. The most serious Author: OpenStax.
