Analysis of 4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide induced mutations at the hprt locus in mammalian cells: possible involvement of preferential DNA repair.


Mutation spectra induced by 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide (4NQO) at the hprt locus for both normal (AA8) and 4NQO-sensitive (UV5) Chinese hamster ovary cells were determined to investigate the effect of DNA repair on the nature of induced mutations. The UV5 cell line is three times more sensitive to 4NQO than the AA8 parental cell line. In UV5 cells, the dGuo-N2… (More)
