In vitro method for predicting whether a compound is genotoxic in vivo.
The invention is in the field of genomics and it provides an in vitro method for predicting whether a compound is genotoxic in vivo. It provides a method that employs the analysis of expression profiles of primary mouse hepatocytes as an in vitro system to discriminate false GTX compounds from true GTX carcinogens. It was found that differential expression of a number of genes could reliably predict whether a compound was a true genotoxic compound.
