    Abstract This study evaluated liver from C57BL/6 mice irradiated with low-dose/low-dose-rate (LDR) subsequent exposure to acute 2 Gy gamma or proton radiation. Analyses were performed on day 56 post-exposure. Expression patterns of apoptosis-related genes were strikingly diff erent among irradiated groups compared with 0 Gy ( Gamma group, whereas 10 were modifi ed in the LDR genes, respectively. Expression of genes in the Gamma ( 0 Gy when mice were pre-exposed to LDR acute radiation alone, two genes in the LDR on in LDR, Gamma, and LDR with hematoxylin and eosin (H & E) suggested more infl ammation, with and without necrosis, in some irradiated groups. The data demonstrate that response to acute radiation is dependent on radiation quality and regimen and that some LDR response were still evident nearly 2 months after exposure. γ -rays (0.01 Gy, 0.03 cGy/h), with and withoutp 0.05). Two genes were aff ected in the Gamma group. In Proton and LDR  Proton groups, there were six and 12 aff ectedTraf3 ) and Proton ( Bak1 , Birc2 , Birc3 , Mcl1 ) groups was no longer diff erent fromγ -rays. When each combined regimen was compared with the corresponding group that received Gamma group and 17 genes in the LDR  Proton group were modifi ed; greatest eff ect wasBirc2 and Nol3 (  5-fold up-regulated by LDR  Protons). Oxygen radical production in livers from the LDR  Proton group was higher Gamma groups ( p 0.05 vs. 0 Gy), but there were no diff erences in phagocytosis of E. coli .
