The effects of ionizing radiation on biological characteristics of the cell membrane, membrane lipids, membrane proteins, and cell membrane signal transduction were summarized. In the future, the mechanisms of cancer-cell apoptosis induced by ionizing radiation and the effects on mitochondria and other organelles may be the important directions for the study on biological effects of ionizing radiation.

Key words: Ionizing radiation, Cell membrane, Membrane lipids and proteins, Signal transduction, Review
