In a reliable study inhaled low-dose formaldehyde-induced DNA adductsand DNA–protein cross-links were evaluated by liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry. Rats were exposed to 1, 30, and 300 ppb [13CD2]-formaldehyde for 28 days (6 h/day) by nose-only inhalation, followed by measuring DNA mono-adduct (N²-HOMe-dG) and DNA–protein crosslinks (dG-Me-Cys) as formaldehyde specific biomarkers. Both exogenous and endogenous DNA mono-adducts and dG-Me-Cys were examined with ultrasensitive nano-liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry. The data clearly show that endogenous adducts are present in all tissues analyzed, but exogenous adducts were not detectable in any tissue samples, including the most susceptible nasalepithelium. Moreover, formaldehyde exposure at 1, 30 and 300 ppb did not alter the levels of endogenous formaldehyde-induced DNA adducts or DNA-protein crosslinks. The novel findings from this study provide new data for risk assessment of exposure to low doses of formaldehyde.
