SO2 , NO2 , and PM2.5 are typical air pollutants produced during the combustion of coal. Increasing evidence indicates that air pollution has contributed to the development and progression of heart-related diseases over the past decades. However, little experimental data and few studies of SO2 , NO2 , and PM2.5 co-exposure in animals exist; therefore, the(More)
Air pollution has been reported to be associated with increased risks of cognitive impairment and neurodegenerative diseases. Because NO2 is a typical primary air pollutant and an important contributor to secondary aerosols, NO2-induced neuronal functional abnormalities have attracted greater attention, but the available experimental evidence, modulating(More)
Multiple pollutants, usually at low levels, coexist and may interact in the environment. It is therefore important to analyze the toxicity of mixtures of coexisting chemicals to evaluate the potential ecological risk. Concern regarding the co-occurrence and combined bioeffects of heavy metals and organic insecticides in aquatic settings has existed for many(More)
Air pollution is a serious environmental health problem that has been previously associated with neuropathological disorders. However, current experimental evidence mainly focuses on the adverse effects of a single air pollutant, ignoring the biological responses to the co-existence of these pollutants. In the present study, we co-exposed C57BL/6 J mice to(More)
Recent studies of leachate-induced ecotoxicity have focused on crude samples, while little attention has been given to changes in biotoxicity resulting from the environmental behavior of landfill leachate. Therefore, we set up a soil column to simulate the underground penetration of leachate into the soil layer, define the rules of migration and(More)
Buprofezin is known for its broad-spectrum action and environmental safety. The popularity of buprofezin has raised concerns about its potentially adverse effects on human health and risk to the environment. In this study, we first identified the liver as one of the major organs in which buprofezin accumulated, and we detected a severe oxidative stress(More)
Substantial epidemiological evidence has consistently reported that fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular outcomes. PM2.5 is a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets composed of multiple components, and there has been high interest in identifying the specific health-relevant physical(More)
Air pollution has been evidenced as a risk factor for neurodegenerative tauopathies. NO2, a primary component of air pollution, is negatively linked to neurodegenerative disorders, but its independent and direct association with tau lesion remains to be elucidated. Considering the fact that the insulin signaling pathway can be targeted by air pollutants and(More)
Atmospheric fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is a serious threat to human health. As a toxicant constituent, metal leads to significant health risks in a population, but exposure to PM2.5-bound metals and their biological impacts are not fully understood. In this study, we determined the metal contents of PM2.5 samples collected from a typical coal-burning(More)
PM2.5 (particulate matter ≤ 2.5 μm) is one of the leading environmental risk factors for the global burden of disease. Whereas increasing evidence has linked the adverse roles of PM2.5 with cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, limited but growing emerging evidence suggests that PM2.5 exposure can affect the nervous system, causing neuroinflammation,(More)
