Comparison of toxicities from three metal oxide nanoparticles at environmental relevant concentrations in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has been developed in a variety of environmental studies to address adverse effects of a wide range of toxicants. In the present study, we compared the toxicities ofExpand
Chronic Al2O3-nanoparticle exposure causes neurotoxic effects on locomotion behaviors by inducing severe ROS production and disruption of ROS defense mechanisms in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
To date, knowledge on mechanisms regarding the chronic nanotoxicity is still largely minimal. In the present study, the effect of chronic (10-day) Al(2)O(3)-nanoparticles (NPs) toxicity on locomotionExpand

Nickel is associated with reproductive toxicity. However, the reproductive toxicity of nickel nanoparticles (Ni NPs) is unclear. Our goal was to determine the association between nickel nanoparticleExpand
Effects of Magnolol and Honokiol on Adhesion, Yeast-Hyphal Transition, and Formation of Biofilm by Candida albicans
Background The first step in infection by Candida albicans is adhesion to host cells or implanted medical devices and this followed by hyphal growth and biofilm formation. Yeast-to-hyphal transitionExpand
Contribution of heavy metals to toxicity of coal combustion related fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in Caenorhabditis elegans with wild-type or susceptible genetic background.
Contribution of chemical components in coal combustion related fine particulate matter (PM2.5) to its toxicity is largely unclear. We focused on heavy metals in PM2.5 to investigate theirExpand
Transferable properties of multi-biological toxicity caused by cobalt exposure in Caenorhabditis elegans.
Cobalt is widespread in the environment and excess dietary Co exposure can result in toxic effects in many organisms. However, whether the multi-biological toxicities caused by Co exposure can beExpand
Translocation and neurotoxicity of CdTe quantum dots in RMEs motor neurons in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
We employed Caenorhabditis elegans assay system to investigate in vivo neurotoxicity of CdTe quantum dots (QDs) on RMEs motor neurons, which are involved in controlling foraging behavior, and theExpand
Contributions of altered permeability of intestinal barrier and defecation behavior to toxicity formation from graphene oxide in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
Graphene oxide (GO) has been extensively studied for potential biomedical applications. Meanwhile, potential GO toxicity arises in both biomedical applications and non-biomedical products whereExpand
Toxicity and translocation of graphene oxide in Arabidopsis thaliana.
We investigated the possible safety property and translocation of graphene oxide (GO) in the range of μg/L in Arabidopsis. GO exposure did not obviously influence germination, seed development, shootExpand
Evaluation of Environmental Safety Concentrations of DMSA Coated Fe2O3-NPs Using Different Assay Systems in Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) coating improves the uptake efficiency presumably by engendering the Fe2O3-NPs. In the present study, we investigated the possible environmental safety concentrationsExpand
