Electronic excited molecular oxygen (singlet oxygen, (1)O(2)) is known to damage DNA, yielding mutations. In this work, the mutagenicity induced by (1)O(2) in a defined sequence of DNA was investigated after replication in Escherichia coli mutants deficient for nucleotide and base excision DNA repair pathways. For this purpose a plasmid containing a(More)
