Effect of ingested titanium dioxide nanoparticles on the digestive gland cell membrane of terrestrial isopods.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to find out whether ingested titanium dioxide nanoparticles (nano-TiO(2)) cause cell membrane damage by direct contact or by lipid peroxidation. We assessed lipid peroxidation and digestive gland cell membrane stability of animals fed on food dosed with nano-TiO(2). Conventional toxicity measures were completed to determine if… (More)
