The quantification of deoxyribonucleoside triphosphate (dNTP) pools, which are the products of RR metabolism, revealed that EGCG, EA, and RA significantly depleted dATP pools with EA also causing a decrease of dCTP pools.
21) The subsequent injection of dCTP also results in incorporation and light, producing the extended product shown (shaded box, right).

Omission of dATP, dTTP, or dGTP during the telomerase extension step of the TRAP reaction resulted in no elongation products being amplified; however, omission of dCTP did not affect the formation of a ladder pattern of telomerase products (data not shown).
The tubes were radioactively labeled by Klenow fragment, using 25 [mu]Ci of [[alpha]-32P] dCTP, 6000 Ci/mmol according to the protocol used by Burow et al.
