Chloramine-induced sister-chromatid exchanges.

Nitrogen-chlorine (N-Cl) derivatives are a class of long-lived oxidants produced by stimulated phagocytes which may be important mediators of the inflammatory response. Because other phagocyte-generated oxidants cause genetic damage in cultured mammalian cells, we studied the ability of the synthetic N-Cl compound, chloramine T (Cl-T), to produce sister… (More)
