X-radiation induces 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine formation in vivo in rat mammary gland DNA.

Abstract

Ionizing radiation is a carcinogen that induces oxidative DNA damage. 8-Hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is a relatively abundant, mutagenic lesion that is widely regarded as a reliable index of oxidative DNA damage. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of X-radiation on levels of 8-OHdG in the context of an experimental model for breast… (More)
