Mutagenesis by acrolein-derived propanodeoxyguanosine adducts in human cells.


Acrolein, which is widely spread in the environment and is produced by lipid peroxidation in cells, reacts with DNA to form two exocyclic 1,N2-propanodeoxyguanosine (PdG) adducts. To establish their relative contribution to the acrolein mutagenicity, the genotoxic properties of alpha-OH-PdG and gamma-OH-PdG together with their model DNA adduct, PdG, were… (More)
