Abstract ABS>The addition of calcium gluconate to the plating medium increased the survival of coidia of Neurospora crassa following exposure to x radiation. Evidence is presented which indicates that calcium is a potential protector against radiation death in yeast and that the protection is associated with the prevention of radiation-induced increase in cell permeability.
