Red meat enhances the colonic formation of the DNA adduct O6-carboxymethyl guanine: implications for colorectal cancer risk.
Red meat is associated with increased risk of colorectal cancer and increases the endogenous formation of N-nitrosocompounds (NOC). To investigate the genotoxic effects of NOC arising from red meatExpand

Molecular dosimetry of ethylene oxide: formation and persistence of 7-(2-hydroxyethyl)guanine in DNA following repeated exposures of rats and mice.
The formation of 7-(2-hydroxyethyl)guanine (7-HEG) in DNA of target and nontarget tissues was investigated in male B6C3F1 mice (20/group) and F344 rats (10/group) exposed to 0, 3, 10, 33, 100, or 300Expand

DNA damage and mutagenesis induced by nitrogen mustards.
The nitrogen mustards are bifunctional alkylating agents which, although used extensively in cancer chemotherapy, are themselves highly carcinogenic. All nitrogen mustards induce monofunctionalExpand

Nitrosated glycine derivatives as a potential source of O6-methylguanine in DNA.
The nitrosated bile acid conjugate N-nitrosoglycocholic acid reacts with DNA to give, rise to several adducts including O6-carboxymethylguanine and, unexpectedly, O6-methylguanine (O6-MG). O6-MG isExpand

Determination of malondialdehyde-induced DNA damage in human tissues using an immunoslot blot assay.
Malondialdehyde (MDA) is a product of lipid peroxidation and prostaglandin biosynthesis. It is mutagenic and carcinogenic and the major adduct formed by reaction with DNA, a highly fluorescentExpand

Lobe-specific increases in malondialdehyde DNA adduct formation in the livers of mice following infection with Helicobacter hepaticus.
Helicobacter hepaticus infection is associated with chronic hepatitis and the development of liver tumours in mice. The underlying mechanism of this liver carcinogenesis is not clear but theExpand
