Effects of ethionine on the replicational fidelity in V79 chinese hamster cells.

Abstract

The possibility that ethionine, the ethyl analog of methionine and potent liver carcinogen, exerts its action by blocking the methylation of DNA and thereby rendering the post-replicative methylation instructed error-avoidance system inoperative was investigated. While the results are not directly supportive for the existence of such a repair system in V79… (More)
