Comparison of p53 mutations induced by PAH o-quinones with those caused by anti-benzo[a]pyrene diol epoxide in vitro: role of reactive oxygen and biological selection.

Abstract

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are one of the major carcinogens in tobacco smoke. They are metabolically activated through different routes to form either diol-epoxides, PAH o-quinones, or radical cations, each of which has been proposed to be an ultimate carcinogen. To study how PAH metabolites mutate p53, we used a yeast reporter gene assay based… (More)
