Description

Cinnamaldehyde and vanillin, compounds in cinnamon and vanilla respectively, have shown the ability to induce repair of mutations in DNA. DNA is a double helix shaped macromolecule consisting of complimentary base components; adenine and thymine, and cytosine and guanine. Mutations in DNA occur when the sequence of the bases change. Changes in the DNA sequence can lead a cell to become cancerous. This focus of this research was the synthesis of the possible products of the reaction that cinnamaldehyde and vanillin undergo with guanosine. These products will be used to determine how these compounds found in our food can induce the repair of mutated DNA.
