Abstract: CDDP is one of the anticancer drugs in which the presence of the repair mechanism has been pointed out. Thus, using established pulmonary cancer cells, we evaluated the metabolism of DNA and RNA in damaged cells treated with CDDP (0.1, 1.0, 10μg/ml) by means of 3 H-TdR . 3 H-UR incorporation assay for 15 days referring to the growth curve and colony forming assay. 3H-TdR uptake inhibition rate in CDDP treatment was higher than 3H-UR uptake inhibition rate and showed good correlation with the inhibition rate of colony formation. In order to evaluate the activity of metabolism of DNA and RNA, the experimental period was divided into two parts : an early stage (2-10 days) and a later stage (7-15 days), and changing phases of uptake of 3H-TdR and 3H-UR was estimated as an increased rate. In the early stage, cells treated CDDP at lower concentrations tended to show more active DNA and RNA metabolism, especially RNA. In the later stage, cells with 0.1μg/ml CDDP which had shown only slight growth inhibition in the early stage revealed lower activity than that in the early stage. Cells with 1.0vg/ml CDDP which showed regrowth after 7 days, and cells with 10μg/ml CDDP which were not recognized with proliferation were observed with more active metabolism of RNA than that in the early stage. Those results indicated that metabolism of RNA is closely associated with the cellular repair process by CDDP.
