Example sentences for: adducts

How can you use “adducts” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Cisplatin causes two types of DNA damage, DNA adducts and inter-stranded cross-linking, resulting in activation of apoptosis pathway in the target tumor cells [ 13 14 ] . Our results suggest that inhibition of tyrosine kinase activity of the potential targets by Gleevec appear to potentiate the effect of cisplatin in DNA-damage induced apoptosis in A549 cells.

  • Such an apoptotic defect could account for the increasing intensity of Ogg1 staining, following accumulated levels of 8-OH-dG adducts with longer duration of diabetes.

  • Our current observation that undetectable levels of MGMT gene expression in >95% of GCTs appears to suggest that the lack of the O(6)-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase enzyme may direct cells to undergo apoptosis due to failure of repair of DNA adducts formed by alkylating agents.

  • Ogg1 knockout mice possess increased levels of 8-OH-dG in their genome, particularly in the mitochondrial genome, but do not seem to exhibit an increased frequency of malignancies [ 44 45 46 ] . It was postulated that the consequences of 8-OH-dG adducts and Ogg1 deficiency affects mainly cells with high oxygen metabolism and slow proliferation, such as liver cells [ 45 ] . While β-cells were not examined in that study, they certainly exhibit both high oxidative metabolism and a low rate of proliferation, consistent with them being a target for the effects of 8-OH-dG adducts.

  • Results from the current study indicate that H 2 O 2 treatment of RPE could lead to the accumulation of 4-HNE protein adducts in the cytoplasm and the nuclei of these cells (Fig.
