Interrelationships between Cellular Nucleotide Excision Repair, Cisplatin Cytotoxicity, HER‐2/neu Gene Expression, and Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Level in Non‐small Cell Lung Cancer Cells

Abstract

Nucleotide excision repair (NER) is a major repair mechanism for DNA lesions induced by cisplatin. Overexpressions of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and HER-2/neu have been reported to affect the sensitivity of certain human cancer cells to cisplatin, presumably by modification of DNA repair activity through interference with NER. Using an in vitro… (More)
