UV-induced unscheduled DNA synthesis in fibroblasts of aging inbred rats.


Because of the suggested relationship between the lifespan of an organism and the amount of unscheduled DNA synthesis (UDS) occurring in its cells after treatment with genotoxic agents, we initiated a lifespan study of this step of the nucleotide excision repair pathway in female Wistar (WAG/Rij) rats. Skin fibroblasts were isolated at 2 time points… (More)
