Human exposure to alkylating agents metabolized from tobacco- and food-borne carcinogens occurs regularly. Dietary inorganic compounds such as selenium and vanadium have been shown previously to provide chemoprotective benefits in rat and human trials. Here, we present biochemical data on the ability of inorganic compounds to protect DNA from alkylation(More)
Metabolism of food- and tobacco-borne procarcinogens results in the exposure of DNA to toxic alkylating agents. These assaults can bring about DNA alkylation damage, mutations, and cancer. Dietary inorganic compounds such as selenium and vanadium are known to prevent cancer, possibly by reacting directly with alkylating agents, thereby preventing DNA(More)
The isolation, crystal structure, and nonaqueous solution characteristics of the first trinuclear vanadate are presented. The crystal structure reveals a six-membered cyclic arrangement of alternating vanadium and oxygen atoms for the anion of [(C(4)H(9))(4)N](3)(V(3)O(9)). The (51)V NMR spectrum of this compound in CD(3)CN exhibits multiple peaks. The(More)
