Human lymphocytes which were non-mitogen-stimulated, and which were depleted of lipoproteins, were found to be deficient in DNA excision repair typically initiated in these cells in response to treatment with a direct-acting polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon carcinogen. Lymphocytes either depleted of lipoproteins or supplemented with human low-density lipoproteins formed DNA-carcinogen adducts which were not chromatographically distinguishable. The state of lipoprotein depletion did not alter… CONTINUE READING
