Daunorubicin-induced DNA lesions in isolated rat hepatocytes and mammary epithelial cells.

Daunorubicin, an anticancer drug, induces primarily mammary adenocarcinoma in Sprague-Dawley rats. We investigated daunorubicin-induced DNA lesions in enzymatically isolated mammary epithelial cells and hepatocytes from 7-8-week-old female Sprague-Dawley rats. Differences were observed in the type and quantity of DNA lesions in mammary epithelial cells and… CONTINUE READING
