Comet Assay


Comet Assay

Comet assay is the Single Cell Gel Electrophoresis assay (also known as 'comet assay') is an uncomplicated and sensitive technique for the detection of DNA damage at the level of the individual eukaryotic cell. It has since increased in popularity as a standard technique for evaluation of DNA damage/repair, bio monitoring and genotoxicity testing. It involves the encapsulation of cells in a low-melting-point agarose suspension, lysis of the cells in neutral or alkaline (pH>13) conditions, and electrophoresis of the suspended lysed cells. The term "comet" refers to the pattern of DNA migration through the electrophoresis gel, which often resembles a comet. These include genotoxicity testing, human biomonitoring and molecular epidemiology, ecogenotoxicology, as well as fundamental research in DNA damage and repair. This can be performed by manual scoring or automatically by imaging software. We know that they are under stress when they are fighting cancer or other diseases, so I wondered whether anything measurable could be seen if we put them under further stress with UV light. We found that people with cancer have DNA which is more easily damaged by ultraviolet light than other people, so the test shows the sensitivity to damage of the DNA - the genome - in a cell. These are early results completed on three different types of cancer and we accept that more research needs to be done; but these results so far are remarkable."
