Anti benzo[a]pyrene diol epoxide (BPDE) alkylates guanines of DNA at N7 in the major groove and at the exocyclic amino group in the minor groove. In this report we investigated the rates of BPDE hydrolysis, DNA alkylation and subsequent depurination of BPDE-adducted pBR322 DNA fragment using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Preincubation studies showed(More)
