The repair of large DNA adducts in mammalian cells.


This paper describes experiments involving the measurement of DNA damage and repair after treatment with 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide (4NQO) or aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) epoxide in a number of mammalian cell cultures primarily associated with defects in the excision repair of UV-induced DNA damage. The results with transformed derivatives of XP cells belonging to… (More)
