Low-dose radiation/Innate immunity/Toll/JNK/Drosophila. Numerous studies report that exposing certain organisms to low-dose radiation induces beneficial effects on lifespan, tumorigenesis, and immunity. By analyzing survival after bacterial infection and antimicrobial peptide gene expression in irradiated flies, we demonstrate that low-dose irradiation of Drosophila enhances innate immunity. Low-dose irradiation of flies significantly increased resistance against grampositive and gram-negativedoi:10.1269/jrr.11170 pmid:22374403 fatcat:7fzh5ggmyjevzhplfpbo2bt6vm
