Assessment of the DNA Damage in Human Sperm and Lymphocytes Exposed to the Carcinogen Food Contaminant Furan with Comet Assay

Abstract

The aim of this work was to assess the damage of DNA in human blood cell and sperm in vitro under the influence of furan. These cells were administered 0-600 μM of furan at 37 and 32 o C for 30 and 60 min, respectively. A significant increase in tail DNA%, tail length and moment indicating DNA damage was observed at increasing doses when compared to the… (More)
