Development of a rapid, small-scale DNA repair assay for use on clinical samples.
Double-strand breaks (DSBs) are the most lethal form of DNA damage. They can be repaired by one of two pathways, homologous recombination and non-homologous end joining (NHEJ). A NHEJ assay has previously been reported which measures joining using cell-free extracts and a linearised plasmid as DNA substrate. This assay was designed for 3 x 10(9) cells grown in vitro and utilised radioactively labelled substrate. We have scaled down the method to use smaller cell numbers in a variety of cell l...Expand abstract
