Cysteine, in a concentration of 850 mgkg body weight administered intravenously 10 min prior to total body irradiation with 880 r, counteracted the inhibiting effect of x-rays on nucleic acid synthesis in the intestinal mucosa of the albino rat. Immediately after irradiation the rats received 20-50 micro-c P to the power of 32 intraperitoneally. The small intestine was used for determining the inorganic tissue P and desoxypentose nucleic acid P and their specific activities.
