Superoxide dismutase activity (SOD), lipid peroxidation and the levels of adenylate metabolism were studied in cells of Nicotiana tabacum and root apex extracts of Pisum sativum irradiated with accelerated ions U-240, Institute for Nuclear Research, UAS, Kiev. Two groups of ions (protons and helium ions with energies 70 Mev and 100MeV, respectively) were used. The aim was to determine the possible relationship between the capacity of antioxidants, which detoxify potentially damaging forms of activated oxygen and the rate of lipid peroxidation by measuring the concentration of malondyaldehyde (MOA). Alteration in the levels of total antioxidants, lipid peroxidation product as well as the concentration of ATP and ADP in case proton and helium ion irradiation, occurred during the course of the radiational endogenous respnce.
