Biological effects of essential oils--a review.
Mutagenic activity of three monofunctional and three bifunctional furocoumarins in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
TLDR
The monofunctional furocoumarins exert different genotoxic effects when compared on a survival basis, reflecting the different photoreactivities of the compounds towards DNA.
MUTAGENIC AND RECOMBINOGENIC ACTION OF DNA MONOADDUCTS PHOTOINDUCED BY THE BIFUNCTIONAL FUROCOUMARIN 8‐METHOXYPSORALEN IN YEAST (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
Abstract— For the same furocoumarin 8‐MOP and the same total number of photoadditions, the genetic activity of DNA monoadducts and a mixture of mono‐ and biadducts photoinduced by the bifunctional
DNA Photodamage, Repair, Gene Induction and Genotoxicity Following Exposures to 254 nm UV and 8‐Methoxypsoralen Plus UVA in a Eukaryotic Cell System
TLDR
The RAD52 repair pathway appears to play an important role not only in dsb repair but also in gene induction, as the signaling pathways initiated by DNA damage and its processing are somewhat linked to the photogenotoxic response.
