Fluorometric Analysis of DNA Unwinding (FADU) as a Method for Detecting Repair-induced DNA Strand Breaks in UV-irradiated Mammalian Cells¶
Abstract Fluorometric analysis of DNA unwinding (FADU assay) was originally designed to detect X-ray–induced DNA damage in repair-proficient and repair-deficient mammalian cell lines. The method wasExpand
