Term Detail
GO term:response to radiation
Synonym: response to electromagnetic radiation stimulus
Synonym: response to radiation stimulus
GO id:GO:0009314
Definition:Any process that results in a change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of an electromagnetic radiation stimulus. Electromagnetic radiation is a propagating wave in space with electric and magnetic components. These components oscillate at right angles to each other and to the direction of propagation.
CommentsNote that 'radiation' refers to electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength.
