In addition, SNPs present in metabolism and DNA repair genes were selected a priori by the consortium as candidate genes based on the available knowledge on functionalities with respect to bioactivation (CYP1A1, CYP2E1, CYP2D6, EPHX1, and EPHX2) and detoxification (GSTM1) of DNA adduct-forming metabolites, base excision repair of oxidative adducts (OGG1), nucleotide excision repair of bulky adducts (XRCC1, ERCC2/XPD, XPA, and XRCC3), repair of alkylated adducts (MGMT, ALKB, and MPG) and of thymine adducts (TDG), and with respect to folate metabolism, which is known to interfere with micronucleus formation (MTHFR, MTR, and MTRR).
The mean adduct level in these chromatograms corresponded to 1.
Many trials were done to detect the optimum concentration of the emulsified adduct.
Of the 113, there were 32 with known APAP overdose, 93 who were adduct negative, and 20 (18%) who were adduct positive (defined using a cut point of 1 nmol/mL).
