DNA repair synthesis in 8 explant-outgrowth cultures of epidermal cells isolated from variant and complementation groups A and E of xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) was examined by measuring unscheduled DNA synthesis (UDS) on autoradiographs. The extents of UDS in XP epidermal cells were compared with those in normal epidermal cells obtained from 26 subjects. In both normal and XP epidermal cells, UDS was induced dose-dependently by radiation at doses of 5-20 J/m2. XP epidermal cells showed various extents of defect in DNA repair depending on the type of XP. In XP-A, the extent of UDS in epidermal cells was very low, being seen in only 3-10% of the normal epidermal cells. But epidermal cells isolated from XP-E and XP-variants exhibited relatively high levels of residual DNA repair; i.e., 69-84% of the control in XP-E and 67-85% in XP-variant. The extents of UDS in XP epidermal cells were almost the same as those in fibroblastic cells isolated from the same specimens.
