Abstract

Cigarette smoking is a cause of lung cancer and other respiratory diseases. Oxidants either present in cigarette smoke and/or formed in the lung of smokers may trigger oxidative and nitrative damage to DNA and cellular components, contributing to carcinogenesis. We have used immunodot and Western blot analyses to measure nitrated (nitrotyrosinecontaining… (More)
