Adduct Analysis Q.

Hi buddies and others

I'm going to be isolating DNA from numerous S. cerevisiae cultures
for DNA adduct analysis. Has anyone out there ever done this
with yeast? I'd like to know if:

1) There are any problems associated with high background levels
of 8-OHGua and other oxidised bases in mitochondrial DNA.

2) If so, is there a simple and rapid method of seperating yeast nuclei from
mitochondria prior to extracting DNA?

Thanks in advance for any help. Reply by e-mail please, I'll post a summary
if anyone else is interested.
