Photoreactivation Of Uv-Induced Damage In G1 Phase Xenopus Cells That Leads To A Sister Chromatid Exchanged And Cell Death, Dawn Laswell, Jennifer Barber, H. Gaston Griggs

Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science

Experiments were conducted with the A87 Xenopus tissue culture cell line which centered on use of the line's efficient photoreactivation (PR) mechanism to: (1) determine the extent to which sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs), induced by exposing early G1 phase cells to low UV fluenced, are photoreactivable, and (2) determine the extent to which the photoreactivable SCEs resulting from these low UV fluences constitute lethal lesions. For the first determination, UV fluences - SCE frequency relations and UV fluence + PR fluence - SCE frequency relations were established for UV fluences in the range 0-12 J/m2 and a single PR fluence of ...
