Nanotechnology—Life-Cycle Risk Management
ABSTRACT Scientists, risk practitioners, and regulators have debated the need to be proactive in assessing the potential health and environmental risks and benefits of unregulated nano-scale…
Normal sister chromatid exchange levels in hospital sterilization employees exposed to ethylene oxide.
In this particular hospital setting no evidence of genetic effects stemming from employees' exposure to low levels of ETO was found, and there were no statistically significant differences in SCE levels between sterilizer workers and controls.
Peroxidase, an alternate pathway to cytochrome P-450 for xenobiotic metabolism in skin: partial purification and properties of the enzyme from neonatal rat skin.
Subcellular distribution studies indicated the activity to be highest and comparable in nuclei and mitochondria, lowest in microsomes, and absent in cytosol, while the combination of 2 mM N-ethylmaleimide and 10% (w/v) glycerol was found to be optimal for preservation of activity.
