Detection of damage on single- or double-stranded DNA in a population exposed to arsenic in drinking water.

Abstract

Different studies have suggested an association between arsenic (As) exposure and damage to single-stranded DNA by reactive oxygen species derived from the biotransformation of arsenic. The single strand damages are converted to double strand damage upon interaction with ultraviolet radiation. Analysis of genomic integrity is important for assessing the… (More)
