The paper aims to investigate cytogenetic and apoptotic responses of γ-irradiation in a radio-resistant cell strain designated as M5. Induced micronuclei, chromosomal aberrations, nuclear fragmentation and nucleosomal ladders by γ-irradiation were less at equal doses in M5 cells in comparison with that obtained in the parental Chinese hamster V79 cells. However, at equal survival, there were no differences in the end points studied. Results indicate that the residual damages that lead to reproductive cell death also resulted in the cytogenetic and apoptotic responses. We speculate that the repair efficiency in M5 cells was more efficient and increased DNA repair could be the cause of radiation resistance observed in M5 cells.

In this paper we describe a sensitive and reproducible reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method with photodiode-array detection for isolation and quantification of the bioactive hydrophilic constituent 7-(1-O-β-d-galacturonide-4′-(1-O-β-d-glucopyranosyl)-3′,4′,5,7-tetrahydroxyflavone, 1, from the seeds of Cuminum cyminum. Compound 1 was separated isocratically on a C18 preparative column, in high purity, after removal of solvents. The purity and identity of the compound were established by use of LC-mass spectrometry and by spectroscopic techniques (1H and 13C NMR). The purity of 1 was also confirmed by HPTLC.
