5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-azadC) is a DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitor increasingly used in treatments of hematological diseases and works by being incorporated into DNA and trapping DNMT. It is unclear what DNA lesions are caused by 5-azadC and if such are substrates for DNA repair. Here, we identify that 5-azadC induces DNA damage as measured by(More)
AA8 Chinese hamster ovary cells were treated with halogenated nucleosides analogues of thymidine, namely CldU, 5-iodo-2'-deoxyuridine (IdU), and 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdU), following different experimental protocols. The purpose was to see whether incorporation of exogenous pyrimidine analogues into DNA could interfere with normal chromosome(More)
