Key Event Description

?


DNA damages are alteration of the DNA backbone including abasic site, single or double strand breaks or inter-strand crosslinks. These damages could be recognized and repaired by specialized enzymes. However, if damages persist, mutation in the DNA sequences can occur. Unlike DNA damages, DNA mutations when both strands are modified cannot be repaired and are heritable. Mutations affect the genotype and could affect phenotype.

Different mechanisms are implicated in DNA damage such as oxidative burst, DNA repair dysfunction or centrosome amplification and chromosome instability [1].


How It Is Measured or Detected

?


DNA damages could be measured using different assays, such as micronucleus formation (OECD n°487) [2], comet assay with different protocols for the detection of double and single-strand breaks, DNA-DNA and DNA-protein crosslinks, adduct and oxidized nucleotides (OECD n°489) [3, 4] and γH2AX for the analysis of DNA strand breaks [5].

DNA mutation could be analyzed with Ames test or via the analysis of frequencies of mutations (OECD n°471) [6].


Domain of Applicability

?


The DNA damages and mutations can occur in mammals, male or female, and is generally measured in adults.
