Mechanism of Mutation in Non-Dividing Cells( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding mutation mechanisms in non-growing cells will help illuminate mechanisms of oncogenesis, tumor progression, and resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs. I have been addressing the mechanism(s) by which antibiotic resistance mutations occur in non-, or slowly-growing enterobacteria cells. Previously, our laboratory had discovered that RecA (an hRAD5 1 homolog) and RecBCD recombination repair proteins are necessary for the acquisition of beta-lactam drug-resistant mutations in the Escherichia coli chromosome during stationary-phase. The data suggest that either the SOS DNA damage-repair response, recombinational DNA repair, or both, are involved in the mutation pathway. I have improved the E. coli-based system to examine the genetic and biochemical processes involved in this mutational mechanism in detail. Initial results in this improved system suggest that beta-lactam resistance mutations occur not only in a growth-dependent manner but also in response to stress induced by starvation. The starvation conditions (described below) may mimic the environment pathogens or tumor cells may encounter in inflicted patients under stress, chemotherapeutic treatment, or other anti-tumor drug regimen in which cells are in a state of slow, or non-growth
