Assessing cellular and genomic damage from environmental nickel using a GFP containing strain of Caenorhabditis elegans (East Carolina University, 2013)Nickel is a naturally found mineral that has become widely used for many electronic devices. As use and subsequent discarding of nickel containing products continues exposure to nickel increases. Nickel can cause external ...

The effects of environmental nickel toxicity upon survival, growth, reproduction, fecundity, and lifespan of nematodes Caenorhabditis elegans, Pristionchus pacificus, and Caenorhabditis briggsae (East Carolina University, 2012)Nickel (II) is a common component of many natural products and man-made devices. Due to its frequent use in everyday life, relatively large amounts of nickel are being released into the environment. Nickel, however, is a ...
(East Carolina University, 2009-02)Background: Although microRNAs (miRNAs) have been found to play an important role in many biological and metabolic processes, their functions in animal response to environmental toxicant exposure are largely unknown. ...
