The main goal was to investigate the profiles of molecular weight globulins lower than albumin in the electrophoresis system in function of the exposition time to gamma radiation. At 72 h post-irradiation, the globulin electrophoretic profiles bellow albumin showed significant radio-induced changes. In addition, the vascular system, specifically the inferior vena cava, kidney, spleen, jugular, hepatic, and pulmonary veins presented a physiological compartmental distribution of globulins. The findings pointed out the radio-induced alterations of the serum globulin concentrations as a late event, possibly related to a radio modulation of the genes’ expression.
