Over the last several decades, the membrane system of the cell has been shown to be a fairly sensitive target for ionizing radiation. As the complex features of membrane functions and structure are revealed more and more, the interest of radiation biology grows. The present review of the biological aspects of ionizing radiation exposure suggests the importance of cell-to-cell contacts through junctions, and the signaling mechanism through receptors.
