Peroxidative in vitro metabolism of diethylstilbestrol induces formation of 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine.


The generation of superoxide and hydroxyl radicals is known to be implicated in the hydroxylation of 2'-deoxyguanosine (dG) at the C-8 position and of guanine base residues in DNA. It was also shown previously that in the presence of horseradish peroxidase, hydrogen peroxide and Fe3+ - EDTA complex, diethylstilbestrol (DES) induces single strand breaks in… (More)
