DNA repair capacity as a risk factor for non-melanocytic skin cancer : a molecular epidemiological study.
Capacity to repair UV-induced DNA damage was studied by use of a host cell reactivation assay in T lymphocytes isolated from 86 cases and 87 controls (aged 44-68 years) who were participants in a population-based case-control study of basal cell (BCC) or squamous cell (SCC) carcinoma of the skin in Geraldton, Western Australia.
Lymphocytes were cultured and transfected with either control or UV-irradiated plasmids (254 nm, 350 J/m2 containing a reporter gene [the chloramphenicolacetyltransferase (CAT) gene], and the repair capacity was determined by measuring GAT gene expression in protein extracts prepared from the transfected cells.
