DNA is vulnerable to the attack of certain oxygen radicals and one of the major DNA lesions formed is 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG), a highly mutagenic lesion that can mispair with adenine. The repair of 8-oxoG was studied by measuring the gene specific removal of 8-oxoG after treatment of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) fibroblasts with the photosensitizer Ro19-8022. This compound introduces 8-oxoG lesions, which can then be detected with the Escherichia coli formamidopyrimidine DNA glycosylase (FPG). In this report we present gene specific repair analysis of endogenous genes situated in different important cellular regions and also the first analysis of strand...
