Earlier experimental studies have demonstrated that: i) Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase deficiency leads to oxidative stress and carcinogenesis; ii) dysregulation of NF-κB pathway can mediate a wide variety of diseases, including cancer. Therefore, we decided, for the first time, to examine the level of oxidative DNA damage and the DNA binding activity of NF-κB(More)
We examined the response to hydrogen peroxide of two L5178Y (LY) sublines which are inversely cross-sensitive to hydrogen peroxide and X-rays: LY-R cells are radio-resistant and hydrogen peroxide-sensitive, whereas LY-S cells are radiosensitive and hydrogen peroxide-resistant. Higher initial DNA breaks and higher iron content (potentially active in the(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the possible impact of Cu,Zn-SOD deficiency on the level of epigenetic modifications in different mouse tissues, and the relationship between these modifications and the NF-κB transcription factor activity. Cu,Zn-SOD deficiency did not influence the level of 5mdC or 5hmdC in the analyzed tissues. Statistically(More)
