Term Information [More information on response to ionizing radiation]

Accession
GO:0010212
Name
response to ionizing radiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
response to ionising radiation, response to ionizing radiation stimulus
Definition
Any process that results in a change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a ionizing radiation stimulus. Ionizing radiation is radiation with sufficient energy to remove electrons from atoms and may arise from spontaneous decay of unstable isotopes, resulting in alpha and beta particles and gamma rays. Ionizing radiation also includes X-rays. Source: PMID:12509526
