HESI's Genetic Toxicology Technical Committee (GTTC) aims to enhance the use of mechanistic information in genotoxicity assessment by building empirical support for the relationship between molecular initiating events and regulatory endpoints in genetic toxicology with the development of several adverse outcome pathways (AOPs): oxidative stress, tubulin binding, topoisomerase II and aurora kinase. The GTTC’s first adverse outcome pathway (AOP) describing modes of actions leading to potentially heritable genomic damage was recently published in Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis. This AOP focused on oxidative DNA damage and resulting mutations and chromosomal aberrations. This AOP is currently included in the OECD workplan and is awaiting approval and endorsement. For additional information, please contact Connie Chen (email@example.com).
