Acetaldehyde-induced DNA lesions could affect the relative resistance to endo- and exo-nucleolytic activity and also inhibit in vitro replication and in vitro transcription. Further investigation of the effects of acetaldehyde-induced DNA lesions may enable a better understanding of the toxicity and carcinogenicity of acetaldehyde.

New homozygous gpt delta transgenic rat strain improves an efficiency of the in vivo mutagenicity assay
The newly established homozygous WH gpt delta rats could considerably improve the lambda EG10 transgene rescue efficiency and be useful to detect in vivo mutagenicity (gpt point mutations and Spi− deletions) in rats.

About the Editor
Masami Yamada studied bacterial genetics and got a PhD degree from Osaka University. Since 1990, using genetic engineering techniques, she has constructed many strains from standard tester strains for the Ames test at the National Institute of Health Sciences, Tokyo. Such strains are useful for research fields on environmental mutagens.
Strain requests come to her every year from domestic, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, and other countries. Currently, she teaches Biology and Genetic Engineering at National Defense Academy of Japan.
Low-dose radiation from A-bombs elongated lifespan and reduced cancer mortality relative to un-irradiated individuals
Aims and scope
Genes and Environment is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that aims to accelerate communications among global scientists working in the field of genes and environment. The journal publishes articles across a broad range of topics including environmental mutagenesis and carcinogenesis, health and biological sciences, environmental genomics and epigenetics, molecular epidemiology, genetic toxicology and regulatory sciences.
