We studied the effect of low dose X-ray irradiation on the expression of stress proteins and gastric mucosal lesion. Low X-ray irradiation induced the expression of mRNA for heme oxygenase in adrenal and stomach. The expression hsp70 mRNA was also induced by low dose X-ray irradiation in the adrenal gland but not in the stomach. However, the expression of Mn-SOD mRNA was not changed in either tissue by low dose X-ray irradiation. Nor was WIR stress-induced gastric mucosal lesion prevented by pre-irradiation. These data suggest that low dose X-ray irradiation induced stress proteins in some specific tissues only. It did not prevent the gastric mucosal lesion.
