Formation of 8-Hydroxydeoxyguanosine in DNA and Carcinogenesis
Oxygen radicals are produced by ionizing radiation and many other environmental carcinogens. They are also produced endogenously in cells by oxygen metabolism. It seems important therefore to study DNA damage by oxygen radicals and its relation to carcinogenesis.
