Abstract:Low-intensity lasers are used for prevention and management of oral mucositis induced
by anticancer therapy, but the effectiveness of treatment depends on the genetic
characteristics of affected cells. This study evaluated the survival and induction of
filamentation of Escherichia coli cells deficient in the nucleotide
excision repair pathway, and the action of T4endonuclease V on plasmid DNA
exposed to low-intensity red and near-infrared laser light. Cultures of wild-type
(strain AB1157) E. coli and strain AB… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
