PbS nanoparticles (NPs) is an important nanomaterial for biomedical imaging in living tissues. However, concerning the high toxicity, especially neurotoxicity, of Pb element, it is crucial that the toxicity assessment of "naked" PbS NPs should be adequately studied. In the current study, we systematically explored the neurotoxicity of PbS NPs in rats by(More)
A sensitive nucleic acid detection platform based on superhydrophilic microwells spotted on a superhydrophobic substrate is fabricated. Due to the wettability differences, ultratrace DNA molecules are enriched and the fluorescent signals are amplified to allow more sensitive detection. The biosensing interface based on superwettable materials provides a(More)
The purpose of this study was to explore genotoxicity due to organic pollutants in wastewater-irrigated vegetables using biological and chemical analyses. Chinese cabbages from wastewater-irrigated farmland were taken as the research object. For the in vitro test, DNA damage was characterized in rat hepatocytes exposed to organic extracts from the cabbages(More)
Lead sulfide nanoparticals (PbS NPs) is an important semiconductor material due to its unique physical and chemical properties, but its potential health hazard to reproductive system is not clear. In the current study, we systematically explored the reproductive toxicity of PbS NPs in rats by measuring the body weight and testicular coefficient, testing(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of lead selenide nanoparticles (nano PbSe) on kidney in rats. METHOD Specific pathogen free SD rats were randomly divided into 4 groups (8 rats/group), and injected with of 0mg/kg (control group), 10mg/kg (low dose group), 20mg/kg (middle dose group), or 30mg/kg (high dose group) nano PbSe respectively. Seven weeks(More)
Lead sulfide nanoparticles (PbS NPs) are one important nanoparticle materials which is widely used in photoelectric production, but its potential health hazard to respiratory system is not clear. This study aimed to explore the possible mechanism of lung injury induced by PbS NPs. Male SD rats were treated with nanoparticles of 60 nm and 30 nm lead sulfide.(More)
The control of cell gradients is critical for understanding many biological systems and realizing the unique functionality of biomimetic implants. Herein, we report a nanotopographic gradient strategy that can rapidly generate cell gradients on a nanodendritic silica substrate without any chemical modification. We can achieve controllable cell gradients(More)
