Abstract

DNA damage was estimated in the liver, pancreas and salivary gland of Syrian hamsters given N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine (BOP) by alkaline sucrose gradient centrifugation. A single BOP dose (10 mg/kg) produced in all 3 tissues extensive DNA damage that was largely repaired in the salivary gland by 4 weeks, while in the liver and pancreas, some DNA damage persisted until 4 weeks. When higher BOP doses (20 and 40 mg/kg) were used, considerable DNA damage was still evident in the pancreas, but not in the liver at 6 weeks. Greater damage persisted in hamsters given 40 mg/kg, compared with those administered 20 mg/kg.
