Selection of Reliable Reference Genes in for Analysis of Nanotoxicity
Despite rapid development and application of a wide range of manufactured metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs), the understanding of potential risks of using NPs is less completed, especially at the molecular level. The nematode ...
Nicotine exposure caused significant transgenerational heritable behavioral changes in Caenorhabditis elegans
Passive and active exposure to tobacco smoking among youth is directly associated with immediate as well as long-term health deterioration. Despite all public health policies and efforts, the percentage of teenage smokers ...
RDX Induces Aberrant Expression of MicroRNAs in Mouse Brain and Liver
(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. ...

Nicotine exposure and transgenerational impact: a prospective study on small regulatory microRNAs
Early developmental stages are highly sensitive to stress and it has been reported that pre-conditioning with tobacco smoking during adolescence predisposes those youngsters to become smokers as adults. However, the molecular ...
