Figure 6. DNA repair in the somatic tissues of young, adolescent and adult animals. Western analysis of Ku70, Rad 51 and Polβ proteins. Representative blots from two independent technical repeats are shown; each experiment included cohorts of five animals for each exposure condition, with equal representation of each animal. Each lane represents pooled lysates from five animals.
