Abstracts To evaluate the defence capacities of embryonic stem (ES) cells against gene impairment, this study measured the levels of 8-hydroxyguanine (8-OH-Gua), a well-known marker of oxidative stress in DNA, and its repair capacity during differentiation. Undifferentiated ES cells (EB3) were cultured without leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) for 0, 4 and 7 days and are referred to as ES-D0, ES-D4 and ES-D7, respectively. These three cell lines were treated with 300 ?M hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) for 48 and 72 h. After treatment, the amounts of 8-OH-Gua in the cells were determined by the high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-electrochemical detector (ECD) method. The levels of 8-OH-Gua in ES-D7 treated with H(2)O(2) were higher than those in ES-D0 and ES-D4, suggesting that the DNA in the undifferentiated cells was protected against gene impairment, as compared to that in the differentiated cells. To examine the repair capacity for 8-OH-Gua, this study analysed the expression of 8-OH-Gua repair-associated genes, 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase 1 (OGG1), MutY homolog (MUTYH) and Mut T homolog 1 (MTH1), in ES-D0, ES-D4 and ES-D7. The mRNA levels of MUTYH and MTH1 showed no significant change, whereas OGG1 mRNA was significantly decreased in ES-D7 treated with H(2)O(2). Moreover, it was observed that ES-D7 treated with H(2)O(2) readily underwent apoptosis, in comparison to its undifferentiated counterparts, ES-D0 and ES-D4. Taken together, ES cells are more resistant to DNA oxidative stresses than differentiated cells.
