Reaction of reducing hydroxyl radical adducts of pyrimidine nucleotides with riboflavin and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) via electron transfer: A pulse radiolysis study



Reaction of reducing hydroxyl radical adducts of pyrimidine nucleotides with riboflavin and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) via electron transfer: A pulse radiolysis study



Biophysical Chemistry 85(1): 17-24



Using the techniques of pulse radiolysis with time-resolved spectrophotometric detection, it has been demonstrated that the interaction of reducing OH radical adducts of dCMP, TMP and UMP with riboflavin (RF) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) does proceed via an electron transfer reaction. From buildup kinetics of radical species, the rate constants of electron transfer from reducing OH adducts of pyrimidines to RF and FAD have been determined, respectively. It could be deduced that RF and FAD would reduce the probability of repair of the damaged DNA in the presence of enzymes and antioxidants, accordingly RF and FAD might have a radiosensitization effect on DNA damage.
