Apoptosis triggered by DNA damage O6-methylguanine in human lymphocytes requires DNA replication and is mediated by p53 and Fas/CD95/Apo-1
Various tumor-therapeutic drugs and environmental carcinogens alkylate DNA inducing O6-methylguanine (O6MeG) that provokes cell death by apoptosis. In rodent fibroblasts, apoptosis triggered by O6MeGExpand
