Abstract

Repair of oxidatively-induced DNA base lesions can stimulate innate and allergic airway inflammation. Specific allergenic extracts like ragweed pollen extract and cat dander extract (CDE) induce TLR4- dependent oxidative stress and DNA damage. These studies suggest that stimulation of an innate receptor/adaptor by allergenic extracts initiates excision of a set of DNA-base lesions. The extent of DNA damage in the genome of nasal epithelial cells of human subjects has not been reported.
