Histograms illustrating the expression of 6 genes encoding proteins that are involved in DNA repair.
NBN, NTHL1, PCNA, APEX1, RAD23 and LIG4 mRNAs were increased by E-treatment in chow-fed monkeys. None of these genes showed a significant effect of ImE or DE in WSD-fed animals, although RAD23 exhibited an upward trend in a fashion similar to the chow fed monkeys. Four of the 6 genes exhibited lower transcript abundance with WSD than chow diet. * Bonferroni p<0.05.
