Nanoparticle-specific changes in Arabidopsis thaliana gene expression after exposure to ZnO, TiO2, and fullerene soot.
The effect of exposure to 100 mg/L zinc oxide (nZnO), fullerene soot (FS) or titanium dioxide (nTiO(2)) nanoparticles on gene expression in Arabidopsis thaliana roots was studied using microarrays.Expand
