We have fully documented the function of angiogenin ANG in protecting and mitigating damages caused by radiation exposure. We have examined the effect of ANG deficiency on HSPC, LymPro, MyePro, and found that ANG deficiency the number of HSPC, LymPro, and MyePro. We have also found that ANG deficiency resulted in more active cycling of HSPC and LymPro but restricted cycling of MyePro. As the consequence of ANG deficiency on hematopoietic cells, we found that ANG deficiency reduced animal survival upon exposure to radiation.
