Poly(ADP-ribose) metabolism appears normal in EM9, a mutagen-sensitive mutant of CHO cells.


EM9 is a mutagen-sensitive CHO cell whose phenotype resembles that of normal CHO cells exposed to 3-aminobenzamide, an inhibitor of poly(ADP-ribose) synthesis. This phenotype suggested that EM9 might be defective in poly(ADP-ribose) metabolism, but we now cannot find any abnormality in the synthesis or in the degradation of poly(ADP-ribose) in permeabilized EM9 cells. Thus the effects of 3-aminobenzamide on wild-type cells may be due to the inhibition of processes other than poly(ADP-ribose) synthesis. 3-Aminobenzamide enhances the cytotoxicity of EMS toward EM9 and control cells to the same degree.
