The Effect of Dibromodulcitol on the Replication of DNA in Yoshida Sarcoma Cells

  • Etel Institoris

Part of the Chemotherapy book series (CT, volume 8)

Summary

Doses of dibromodulcitol uhich significantly suppressed the grouth rate of Yoshida sarcoma cells in culture produce an alkylation level of 2.3 – 4.3 x 105 nucleotides per molecule of dibromodulcitol in DNA. This extent of alkylation does not lead to single strand breaks in the parental DNA, whereas it causes postreplicative lesions in the neuly synthesized DNA strand, the repair of uhich is dose dependent.
