This investigation was carried out on three different cell lines: V79 a Chinese hamster lung cell, V-C8 a Breast Cancer type 2 (BRCA2) susceptibility protein mutant of V79, and a gene corrected variant of V-C8 containing the human chromosomes with intact BRCA2 gene. The latter two were used as off target cell lines to ensure only the BRCA2 deficient cells were ...
