We study radiative corrections to massless quantum electrodynamics modified by two dimension-five LV interactions and in the framework of effective field theories. All divergent one-particle-irreducible Feynman diagrams are calculated at one-loop order and several related issues are discussed. It is found that massless quantum electrodynamics modified by the interaction alone is one-loop renormalizable and the result can be understood on the grounds of symmetry. In this context the one-loop Lorentz-violating beta function is derived and the corresponding running coefficients are obtained.
