Effect of dose and dosing rate on the mutagenesis of nitric oxide in supF shuttle vector|
Kim, Ji Hye & Kim, Min Young
Purpose: To determine how the dose and rate of NO• treatment affects mutagenic responses.
Methods: Shuttle vector pSP189 was used to determine the genotoxicity resulting from in vitro
exposure to NO• using three delivery methods (reactor and Transwell co-culture systems, and NO•
donor sodium nitroprusside), followed by plasmid replication in bacteria MBL50 and human AD293 cells.
Results: When exposed to preformed 100% NO• for 3 h or 1% NO• for 35 h using a reactor system, a
cumulative dose of 1260 μM × min reduced AD293 cell viability by 46 and 18% and increased mutation
frequencies (MFs) 1.9- and 5.3-fold higher than argon control, respectively. Roughly 5-fold increase in
MF of the supF gene of AD293 cells co-cultivated with macrophages stimulated with IFN-γ/LPS was
also observed. When AD293 cells were treated by SNP, DNA strand breaks were induced and MFs
were increased in a dose-dependent manner.
Conclusion: These results provide important clues to how dose and dosing rate of introducing NO• may
contribute to potential genotoxicity resulting from NO• formation in vivo.
