Hydroxylated fullerenes inhibit neutrophil function in fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas Rafinesque, 1820).
Hydroxylated fullerenes act as potent inhibitors of cytochrome P450-dependent monooxygenases, and are reported to be very strong antioxidants quenching reactive oxygen species (ROS) production.Expand

Effects of nanosized titanium dioxide on innate immune system of fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas Rafinesque, 1820).
Effects of nanosized (<100 nm) titanium dioxide (TiO(2)) particles on fish neutrophils and immune gene expression was investigated using the fathead minnow (Pimpehales promelas). Expanded use ofExpand

Virgin microplastics are not causing imminent harm to fish after dietary exposure.
Among aquatic organisms, fish are particularly susceptible to ingesting microplastic particles due to their attractive coloration, buoyancy, and resemblance to food. However, in previous experimentalExpand

Gene expression of zebrafish embryos exposed to titanium dioxide nanoparticles and hydroxylated fullerenes.
Increased release of engineered nanoparticles to the environment suggests a rising need for the monitoring and evaluation of potential toxicity. Zebrafish frequently have been used as a model speciesExpand

Titanium dioxide nanoparticles enhance mortality of fish exposed to bacterial pathogens.
Nano-TiO2 is immunotoxic to fish and reduces the bactericidal function of fish neutrophils. Here, fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) were exposed to low and high environmentally relevantExpand
