Interactions of graphene oxide and graphene nanoplatelets with the in vitro Caco-2/HT29 model of intestinal barrier
(Scientific Reports-Nature, 2020)
Carbon-based nanomaterials are being increasingly used, demanding strong information to support their safety in terms of human health. As ingestion is one of the most important exposure routes in humans, we have determined ...
Cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of cadmium oxide nanoparticles evaluated using in vitro assays
(Mutation Research-Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis, 2019)
Cadmium oxide nanoparticles (CdO NPs) are among some of the most studied and industrially used metal oxide NPs. They have been widely used for industrial application, such as paint pigments and electronic devices, and ...
Independent effects on cellular and humoral immune responses underlie genotype-by-genotype interactions between drosophila and parasitoids
(PLoS Pathogens, 2019)
It is common to find abundant genetic variation in host resistance and parasite infectivity within populations, with the outcome of infection frequently depending on genotype-specific interactions. Underlying these effects ...
In vivo evaluation of the toxic and genotoxic effects of exposure to cobalt nanoparticles using Drosophila melanogaster
(Environmental Science Nano, 2019)
Nanomaterials in general and cobalt nanoparticles (CoNPs) in particular are of great interest not only because of their multiple applications and environmental impact, but also for their potential toxicity and safety issues. ...
