Photoreactivation of ultraviolet radiation-induced pyrimidine dimers in neonatal BALB/c mouse skin.


The numbers of ultraviolet light (UV)-induced pyrimidine dimers in the DNA of neonatal BALB/c mouse skin were measured by assessing the sensitivity of the DNA to Micrococcus luteus UV endonuclease. Irradiation of neonatal BALB/c mice with FS40 sunlamps caused a dose-dependent induction of endonuclease-sensitive sites (pyrimidine dimers) in DNA extracted… (More)
