Comparison of the Protective Effect of Garlic Extract and Cell Defense during Adaptive Response

Comparison of the Protective Effect of Garlic Extract and Cell Defense during Adaptive Response The resistance of human cell DNA to damaging doses of CdCl2 or γ radiation has been investigated after pretreatment with garlic extract (GE) or with adaptive doses of the same mutagens. The adaptive response (AR) and pretreatment with GE stabilize the DNA structure in a similar way. In experiments with 4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide (4-NQO), GE does not stabilize DNA structure but increases the rate and volume of repair of induced breaks. 3-Aminobenzamide (3-AB) increases the number of DNA breaks induced in experiments with CdCl2, γ radiation, and 4-NQO. This suggests that poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase participates defense of cells from mutagens. Thus, it has been demonstrated that cell defense from CdCl2 or γ radiation in experiments with GE and AO is mediated by stabilization of DNA structure and in experiments with 4-NQO, by activation of repair of DNA breaks induced. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

The resistance of human cell DNA to damaging doses of CdCl2 or γ radiation has been investigated after pretreatment with garlic extract (GE) or with adaptive doses of the same mutagens. The adaptive response (AR) and pretreatment with GE stabilize the DNA structure in a similar way. In experiments with 4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide (4-NQO), GE does not stabilize DNA structure but increases the rate and volume of repair of induced breaks. 3-Aminobenzamide (3-AB) increases the number of DNA breaks induced in experiments with CdCl2, γ radiation, and 4-NQO. This suggests that poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase participates defense of cells from mutagens. Thus, it has been demonstrated that cell defense from CdCl2 or γ radiation in experiments with GE and AO is mediated by stabilization of DNA structure and in experiments with 4-NQO, by activation of repair of DNA breaks induced.
