By Claes Ramel (auth.), Andreas Kappas (eds.)

The nineteenth annual assembly of the eu Environmental Mutagen Society used to be held in Rhodes, Greece, from October twenty first to twenty sixth, 1989. The programme was once selected to discover what's at present recognized in regards to the mechanisms of mutagenesis and carcinogenesis, triggered by way of environmental brokers, and the questions concerning the courting of those methods. contemporary findings, concepts and methodologies within the quarter of biomonitoring of people uncovered to environmental mutagens-carcinogens have been provided and massive realization used to be additionally paid to the features and problems with collaborative environmental coverage. Researchers from allover the area contributed to the programme of the assembly with posters and oral shows, supplying numerous new information and engaging clinical ways. a couple of extraordinary scientists have been invited to provide the result of their paintings. it is just their presenta­ tions that are incorporated during this ebook, protecting the subsequent subject matters: Mutations and carcinogenesis; mechanisms of chemical­ ly-induced genetic results on molecular, chromosomal and cellphone department point; adaptability and service mechanisms; chemical carcinogenesis and oncogenes; constitution and metabolism of mutagens-carcinogens; biomonitoring and epidemiology of people uncovered to environmental mutagens-carcinogens. For the sake of comparing and controlling the mutagenic and carcinogenic power of the environment it's indispens­ in a position to comprehend the mechanisms and techniques during which chemical compounds act at the genetic fabric, inflicting both heredi­ tary ailment or melanoma. The booklet of those lawsuits will with a bit of luck give a contribution to this task.

Linn, pers. ). In principle, therefore, Pol. 1* has properties that might be expected of an error-prone polymerase. , 1989). Therefore, although it is possible that Pol 1* may contribute to UV mutagenesis when it is present, it is not essential for the major UmuD, C-dependent pathway and its overall contribution is likely to be small. The situation with Pol II is less clear. , 1988) it could also be important as a mutagenic polymerase. Cells with a mutation in the gene specifying Pol II (pol B-100) appear to be normally mutable by UV (M.

Bridges MRC Cell Mutation Unit, University of Sussex Falmer, Brighton, BN1 9RR, Great Britain Exactly ten years ago I addressed this Society on the topic of ultraviolet light (UV) mutagenesis in bacteria and the burden of my talk was that the appearance of a newly induced mutation reflected a failure of the normal errorcorrecting mechanisms (Bridges, 1980). The three errorcorrecting mechanisms discussed then were DNA polymerase base selection, exonucleolytic proofreading, and mismatch correction.

A rather close correlation emerges when one considers the DNA composition of pericentric heterochromatin and the timing of centromere separation. Pericentric heterochromatin, in most instances, is made up of repetitive DNA, its composition being characteristic of the species. As discussed elsewhere (Vig, 1987) there emerges a rather tight link between the quantity of repetitive DNA and the timing of centromere separation. Fig. 1. A C-banded mouse cell showing clear separation of centromeres with small C-bands (arrow heads).
