Distribution of 7-alkyl-2'-deoxyguanosine adduct levels in human lung.

Human lung tissue is frequently studied as a target organ for DNA damage from carcinogen-DNA adducts. In order to assess the distribution of carcinogen-DNA adducts in human lung, we measured 7-methyl-2'-deoxyguanosine-3'-monophosphate (7-methyl-dGp), 7-ethyl-2'-deoxyguanosine-3'-monophosphate (7-ethyl-dGp) and 4-hydroxy-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (HPB… CONTINUE READING
