Ionizing radiation mediated activation of the DNA damage response induces a transcriptional upregulation of genes that are also involved in nucleotide excision repair (NER). Here, we demonstrate in nondividing normal human fibroblasts that UV-induced NER is augmented by pre-exposure to IR. The increase of NER by IR lasts up to 48 h after X-ray treatment. Furthermore, we show by various approaches that both DDB2 and XPC play key roles in this adaptation process.
