An important feature of the common DNA oxidation product 8-oxo-7,8-dihydroguanine (OG) is its susceptibility to further oxidation that produces guanidinohydantoin (Gh) and spiroiminodihydantoin (Sp) lesions. In the presence of amines, G or OG oxidation produces hydantoin amine adducts. Such adducts may form in cells via interception of oxidized(More)
Bacterial DNA can be damaged by reactive nitrogen and oxygen intermediates (RNI and ROI) generated by host immunity, as well as by antibiotics that trigger bacterial production of ROI. Thus a pathogen's ability to repair its DNA may be important for persistent infection. A prominent role for nucleotide excision repair (NER) in disease caused by(More)
In the present investigation the studies on erythrocyte and leucocyte counts, haemoglobin concentration, haematocrit values, blood biochemistry of protein, glucose and cholesterol, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, pH value, diameter of erythrocyte and clotting time were made in different sex and size (weight group) of an Indian field rat, Rattus rattus(More)
