The hprt T-cell cloning assay allows the detection of mutations occurring in vivo in the hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (hprt) gene of T-lymphocytes. We have shown previously that the illegitimate activity of V(D)J recombinase accounts for about 40% of the hprt mutations in T-lymphocytes of human newborns as measured with umbilical cord(More)
Somatic mutations have been implicated as critical early events in carcinogenesis. Point mutations, deletions, and translocation events have been shown to activate oncogenes or inactivate suppressor oncogenes. In human population monitoring, quantitative analysis of mutation events that affect gene function is limited to those genes whose cellular(More)
