RÉSUMÉ

Arsenic (As) contamination in groundwater is of increasing health concern in West Bengal, India. Arsenic has been associated with various human cancers, but the precise mechanism of its co-carcinogenic action is not clearly elucidated. Oxidative stress and defective repair mechanisms may promote accumulation of mutations and may be a stepping stone for carcinogenesis. Prevention of arsenic-induced oxidative stress and repair inhibition may reduce the chances of initiation of cancer. Tea polyphenols are reported to have excellent chemopreventive properties against cancer. This study aimed to elucidate the role of tea against arsenic-induced formation of 8-hydroxy-2’-deoxyguanosine (8OHdG) and arsenic-suppressed DNA repair in Swiss albino mice. Both green and black tea gave fruitful results in the reduction of 8OHdG and 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase (OGG1) in Swiss albino mice administered sodium arsenite (As III). DNA repair enzymes−such as PARP1, DNA β-polymerase, XRCC1, DNA ligase III, DNA protein kinase (catalytic subunit), XRCC 4, DNA ligase IV, and DNA topoisomerase IIβ−were induced by the phytochemicals at both the protein and genetic levels. Thus, tea polyphenols may prove effective in treating arsenic-induced carcinogenesis.
