DNA / RNA Damage and Repair

Damage to DNA, including oxidative DNA damage, has been implicated in the development of a variety of cancers including colon, breast and prostate. Mutations to checkpoint kinases can ultimately lead to decreased DNA repair and increased susceptibility to cancer.

Recently oxidative RNA damage has been described in conjunction with a wide variety of neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Dementia with Lewy Bodies.

We have developed quick and reliable assays to detect various types of RNA and DNA damage.
