Sex and organ differences in oxidative DNA and RNA damage due to treatment of Sprague-Dawley rats with acetoxime or 2-nitropropane.


The hepatocarcinogens 2-nitropropane and acetoxime have previously been found to induce a specific and qualitatively identical pattern of base damage in rat liver DNA and RNA, including the induction of increased levels of 8-hydroxyguanine. Because both 2-nitropropane and acetoxime are weaker carcinogens in female rats than male rats, we examined the… (More)
