Abstract

8-Nitroguanosine is a nitratively modified nucleoside that is formed endogeneously under inflammatory conditions dependent on nitric oxide production, particularly associated with cancer risks. Here, we investigated the mutagenic potential of 8-nitroguanosine in mammalian cells. Treatment with 8-nitroguanosine (10-1000 μM) for 1 h significantly increased (by 6-8 times) the mutation frequency of the xanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (gpt) gene in AS52 cells without cytotoxic effects. 8-Nitroguanosine treatment induced a G-to-T transversion in gpt gene at position 86. It also significantly increased levels of abasic sites in DNA. These observations suggest that formation of 8-nitroguanosine may contribute to the pathogenesis of inflammation-associated carcinogenesis.
