Compared effects of N-hydroxyurethan, urethan and hydroxyurea on DNA synthesis. In vivo and in vitro studies

The effect of N-hydroxyurethan (HUR) on DNA synthesis has been tested both in vivo on various tissues and in vitro on concanavalin A (ConA)-stimulated rat thymocytes and compared with the action of urethan and hydroxyurea. HUR suppresses scheduled DNA synthesis, except that of non-stimulated spleen cells in vitro. The inhibition is efficient and rapid and… (More)
