Disease relevance of Aldehyde reactive probe


High impact information on Aldehyde reactive probe

  • ARP penetrates the plasma membrane of cells and reacts with AP sites in DNA to form a stable ARP-DNA adduct [2].
  • A biotin-containing aldehyde-reactive probe (ARP) [Kubo, K., Ide, H., Wallace, S. S. & Kow, Y. W. (1992) Biochemistry 31, 3703-3708] is used to measure AP sites in living cells [2].
  • By using this ARP-slot-blot assay, the rate of spontaneous depurination of calf thymus DNA was determined [3].
  • In order to elucidate the specificity of ARP to DNA damages, ARP was incubated with a variety of damaged bases or nucleosides and the reaction mixtures were analyzed by HPLC [4].
  • The rate of production of ARP sites was proportional to the X-ray dose as well as to the concentration of MMS [1].

Biological context of Aldehyde reactive probe

  • Repair kinetics of abasic sites in mammalian cells selectively monitored by the aldehyde reactive probe (ARP) [5].
