Despite the widespread application of silica nanoparticles (SiNPs) in industrial, commercial, and biomedical fields, their response to human cells has not been fully elucidated. Overall, little is known about the toxicological effects of SiNPs on the cardiovascular system. In this study, SiNPs with a 58 nm diameter were used to study their interaction with(More)
Although nanoparticles have a great potential for biomedical applications, there is still a lack of a correlative safety evaluation on the cardiovascular system. This study is aimed to clarify the biological behavior and influence of silica nanoparticles (Nano-SiO2) on endothelial cell function. The results showed that the Nano-SiO2 were internalized into(More)
This study was to investigate the combined toxicity of silica nanoparticles (SiNPs) and methylmercury (MeHg) on cardiovascular system in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos. Ultraviolet absorption analysis showed that the co-exposure system had high absorption and stability. The dosages used in this study were based on the NOAEL level. Zebrafish embryos exposed(More)
The toxic effects of silica nanoparticles (SiNPs) are raising concerns due to its widely applications in biomedicine. However, current information about the epigenetic toxicity of SiNPs is insufficient. In this study, the epigenetic regulation of low-dose exposure to SiNPs was evaluated in human bronchial epithelial BEAS-2B cells over 30 passages. Cell(More)
OBJECTIVE The diversity of culturable bacteria in the six frozen soils from High-latitude area and High-altitude area were analyzed by using culture-dependent approaches. METHODS Three solidified media were used to isolate culturable bacteria. Bacterial 16S rRNA genes of the isolates were PCR amplified using bacteria-universal primers, and then were(More)
A stereoselective synthetic approach was utilized to synthesize enantiopure annuionones A (1b) and B (2b), two ionone-type norsesquiterpenoids that both bear a 6-oxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane framework and possess allelopathic activity. A stereoselective Diels-Alder reaction based on chiral trisubstituted dienophile 20 was employed to obtain the optically active(More)
Amorphous silica nanoparticles (SiNPs) have been extensively used in biomedical applications due to their particular characteristics. The increased environmental and iatrogenic exposure of SiNPs gained great concerns on the biocompatibility and hematotoxicity of SiNPs. However, the studies on the hemolytic effects of amorphous SiNPs in human erythrocytes(More)
The multinucleation effect of silica nanoparticles (SiNPs) had been determined in our previous studies, but the relative mechanisms of multinucleation and how the multinucleated cells are generated were still not clear. This extensional study was conducted to investigate the mechanisms underlying the formation of multinucleated cells after SiNPs exposure.(More)
A useful and flexible strategy for synthesis of (-)- and (+)-infectocaryone from commercial sugars is developed. The key step of the synthesis is a new-type Diels-Alder reaction with good chemoselectivity and stereoselectivity, in which a mixture of alkene regioisomers in a dynamic equilibrium is employed as chiral dienophiles for the first time.
