Effect of gamma-linolenic acid and prostaglandins E1 on gamma-radiation and chemical-induced genetic damage to the bone marrow cells of mice.


PMID 16488586

Abstract

The effect of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) on gamma-radiation, diphenylhydantoin (DPH), benzo(a)pyrene (BP), and 4-alpha-phorbol-induced genetic damage to the bone marrow cells of mice, using the sensitive micronucleus (MN) test was investigated. PGE1 and its precursor GLA prevented gamma-radiation, DPH, BP, and 4-alpha-phorbol-induced genetic damage.
