This report extends our investigation of double base lesions produced by irradiation of DNA model compounds. Studies of d(CpGpTpA) X-irradiated in oxygenated aqueous solution show that two of the five principal products are oligomers having adjacent bases damaged. In these oligomers guanine is hydroxylated at the 8-position and an adjacent pyrimidine is degraded to a formamido remnant.
