The new field of applied genetic research, genetic toxicology and mutation research investigates the mutagenicity and cancerogenicity of chemicals and other agents. Permanent changes in genes and chromosomes, or genome mutations, can be induced by a plethora of agents, including ionizing and nonionizing radiations, chemicals, and viruses. Mutagenesis research has two aims: (1) to understand the molecular mechanisms leading to mutations, and (2) to prevent a thoughtless introduction of mutagenic agents into our environment. Both aspects, namely, basic and applied, will be treated in the new series Advances in Mutagenesis Research.Unlike the case for rodent cells, the repair heterogeneity in XP-C is influenced by the cell growth State. ... using arrested XP-C, like those performed for other cell types by these authors, would be valuable and should help decide whether ananbsp;...
