Non-invasive strategies for the analysis of endogenous DNA damage are of interest for the purpose of monitoring genomic exposure to biologically produced chemicals. We have focused our research on the biological processing of DNA adducts and how this may impact the observed products in biological matrixes. Preliminary research has revealed that(More)
Oxidative stress triggers DNA and lipid peroxidation, leading to the formation of electrophiles that react with DNA to form adducts. A product of this pathway, (3-(2'-deoxy-β-d-erythro-pentofuranosyl)-pyrimido[1,2-α]purine-10(3H)-one), or M(1)dG, is mutagenic in bacterial and mammalian cells and is repaired by the nucleotide excision repair pathway.
