Specific N-ras mutation in bone marrow within 48 H of 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene treatment in Huggins-Sugiyama rat leukemogenesis.

Abstract

7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA)-induced leukemias in Long-Evans rats consistently have an A --> T transversion at the second base of codon 61 in the N-ras gene. This mutation is also detected in the preleukemic stage. To determine when this specific N-ras mutation occurs in the early stages of leukemogenesis, we designed the mutant allele-specific… (More)
