Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have studied the effect of gamma radiation on differentiation in neuroblastoma cell lines AF8 and SJ-N-KP. Growth inhibition and morphological and biochemical differentiation have been examined following radiation exposure to 1-10 Gy. Gamma radiation induced marked growth inhibition and morphological differentiation in a dose-and time-dependent manner in both cell lines, and induced biochemical differentiation in AF8 cells.
