Our previous report on multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) has demonstrated the generation of reactive radicals and depletion of intracellular antioxidants which in turn cause cell death through activation of caspases. The molecular mechanism of cellular death due to MWCNT is not clear yet. In this study, we investigated the signaling pathways implicated in(More)
There is an ongoing concern regarding the biocompatibility of nanoparticles with sizes less than 100 nm as compared to larger particles of the same nominal substance. In this study, we investigated the toxic properties of magnetite stabilized with polyacrylate sodium. The magnetite was characterized by X-ray powder diffraction analysis, and the mean(More)
With the widespread application of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in diverse commercial processes, scientists are now concerned about the potential health risk of occupational exposures. In this study, CNT-induced pulmonary toxicity was investigated by exposing BALB/c mice to aerosolized single-wall (SW) CNT and multiwall (MW) CNT (5 μg/g of mice) for 7(More)
Here, we have synthesized Zinc Oxide (ZnO) nanorods at room temperature using zinc acetate and hexamethylenetetramine as precursors followed by characterization using X-ray diffraction (XRD), fourier transform infra red spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy. The growth of the synthesized ZnO was found to be(More)
The synthesis of nanoparticles and their functionalization to effectively utilize them in biological applications including drug delivery is currently a challenge. Calcium carbonate among many other inorganic nanosized particles offers promising results for such applications. We have synthesized calcium carbonate nanoparticles using polymer mediated growth(More)
In this work we propose a fully differential, back terminated current-mode HDMI source with reduced power consumption. The proposed HDMI source features an asymmetrical output port. This port offers high output impedance to the outbound signal and provides back termination to the reflected signal from the line. This feature meets the output impedance(More)
