It is proposed that singlet dioxygen reacting with guanosine or deoxyguanosine part of nucleotides does not, by itself, cause DNA cleavage. The strand break originates at the endoperoxide stage whenever this link evolves into a O-centered radical. The O-centered radical is then in a good spatial position to abstract an hydrogen intramolecularly from the ribose or desoxyribose part of the nucleotide. The carbon centered radical thus formed on the sugar part may lead to strand break either by a P-scission mechanism or by an homolytically induced solvolysis. High pH could also induce cleavage after the endoperoxide stage via a base catalyzed ring chain protomerism.
