Example sentences for: adducts

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

  • MGMT gene encodes O(6)-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase and this enzyme effectively removes DNA adducts formed by alkylating agents [ 33 ] . Epigenetic gene silencing of MGMT confers enhanced sensitivity to alkylating-based chemotherapy, and lack of methylation associates with failure to respond to chemotherapy [ 34 35 ] . On the contrary, all patients that had MGMT promoter methylation were dead within 21 months of initial diagnosis, which predicts a poor prognosis.

  • first reported oxidative stress caused by t-butylhydroperoxide or iron/ascorbate could lead to 4-HNE protein adducts in hepatocytes [ 62 ] . Further studies by these researchers attempted to identify the common epitope recognized by the 4-HNE antibodies.

  • Several laboratories have attempted to document the formation of 4-HNE protein adducts during oxidative stress by Western blot analysis.

  • 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.

  • It is important to point out that the patterns of 4-HNE protein adducts, as shown by these Western blot analyses, were different among these studies, probably as a result of tissue specificity.
