We investigated the effects of in utero exposure to nanoparticle-rich diesel exhaust (NR-DE) on reproductive function in male rats. Pregnant F344 rats were exposed to NR-DE (148.86 microg/m(3), 1.83 x 10(6)particles/cm(3), 3.40 ppm CO, 1.46 ppm NOx), filtered diesel exhaust (F-DE; 3.10 microg/m(3), 2.66 particles/cm(3), 3.30 ppm CO, 1.41 ppm NOx), or clean air (as a control) from gestation days 1 to 19 (gestation day 0=day of sperm-positivity). Male offspring were examined on postnatal day 28… Expand
Effects of exposure to nanoparticle-rich diesel exhaust on adrenocortical function in adult male mice.
TLDR
Exposure to NR-DE or F-DE may disrupt adrenocortical function in adult male mice and administration of ACTH resulted in a dose-dependent increase in corticosterone and progesterone release in mice-exposed to low-concentrationNR-DE and clean air. Expand
Effects of Exposure to Nanoparticle-rich Diesel Exhaust on Pregnancy in Rats
TLDR
It is demonstrated that exposure of pregnant rats to NR-DE and F-DE suppresses the function of corpora lutea and stimulates thefunction of the adrenal cortex, suggesting a risk of spontaneous abortion associated with maternal hormonal changes. Expand
Prenatal exposure to diesel exhaust particles and effect on the male reproductive system in mice.
TLDR
Prenatal exposure to SRM2975 was associated with reduced daily sperm production in adulthood, which was not possible to clearly associate with altered endocrine function or expression of aquaporins in the testes. Expand
Pre- and postnatal exposure to low-dose diesel exhaust impairs murine spermatogenesis
TLDR
Results indicate that pre- and postnatal exposure of low-dose DE is detrimental to Sertoli cell function and may cause abnormal spermatozoa. Expand
Effect of nanoparticle-rich diesel exhaust on testosterone biosynthesis in adult male mice
The effect of nanoparticle-rich diesel exhaust (NR-DE) on the testicular function and factors related with the biosynthesis of testosterone gene expression were investigated in mice. Male C57BL/JclExpand
Impact of a gestational exposure to diesel exhaust on offspring gonadal development: experimental study in the rabbit
TLDR
The morphology and the endocrine function of the gonad collected just at the arrest of the exposure were similar in polluted and control animals in both sexes, and no differences were observed as well in gonads collected after puberty. Expand
Developmental toxicity of diesel exhaust: a review of studies in experimental animals.
TLDR
Although this paper provides initial information on the potential developmental toxicity of DE including the gaseous phase and DEPs, further studies using relevant concentrations closely reflecting expected levels of human exposure are needed. Expand
Effects of first-generation in utero exposure to diesel engine exhaust on second-generation placental function, fatty acid profiles and foetal metabolism in rabbits: preliminary results
TLDR
Preliminary results demonstrate that diesel engine exhaust exposure and in utero indirect exposure should be considered as a programming factor within the context of the DOHaD (Developmental Origins of Health and Disease) with a probable intergenerational transmission. Expand
The effects of 1st and 2nd generation biodiesel exhaust exposure on hematological and biochemical blood indices of Fisher344 male rats - The FuelHealth project.
TLDR
Exposure to DEE from B7, which was associated with higher exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, resulted in decreased number of T and NK lymphocytes, whileDEE from SHB20 induced a higher level of DNA single-strand breaks, oxidative stress and increased red blood cells parameters, manifested as deregulation of redox balance. Expand
Nanoparticle‐rich diesel exhaust‐induced liver damage via inhibited transactivation of peroxisome proliferator‐activated receptor alpha
TLDR
NR‐DE may contain some materials that inhibit PPARα activation in relation to lipid metabolism and inflammation, and exposure at one month may cause inflammation; however, this finding may not be observed after a longer exposure period. Expand

Effects of inhaled nanoparticle-rich diesel exhaust on regulation of testicular function in adult male rats
TLDR
It is suggested that NR-DE inhalation disrupts the endocrine activity of the male reproductive system and increases testicular ir-inhibin concentrations, but only at 4 weeks. Expand
DIESEL EXHAUST AFFECTS THE ABNORMAL DELIVERY IN PREGNANT MICE AND THE GROWTH OF THEIR YOUNG
TLDR
The results show that toxic substances in DE might cause abnormal delivery in mice, and that exposed females affected the growth and sexual maturation of their young. Expand
Exposure to diesel exhaust affects the male reproductive system of mice.
TLDR
It is proposed here that diesel exhaust is an environmental pollutant with the potential to influence male reproductive function and a no-observed-adverse-effect level (NOAEL) was observed with approximately 30 micrograms DEP/m3, which is lower than the WHO-recommended limit. Expand
Diesel exhaust particle toxicity on spermatogenesis in the mouse is aryl hydrocarbon receptor dependent.
TLDR
It is clearly demonstrated that DEPs suppress testicular function, especially spermatogenesis and sperm motility, which may be AhR dependent. Expand
Estrogenic and anti-androgenic activities of 4-nitrophenol in diesel exhaust particles.
TLDR
The results suggest that diesel exhaust emissions and the degradation of parathion can lead to accumulation of PNP in air, water, and soil and thus could have serious deleterious effects on wildlife and human health. Expand
Effects of 3-methyl-4-nitrophenol in diesel exhaust particles on the regulation of testicular function in immature male rats.
TLDR
It is suggested that PNMC has a direct effect on the testes of immature male rats, causing a reduction in testosterone secretion. Expand

TLDR
Observation of cyclicity at 6 months old is able to detect possible delayed ovarian dysfunction induced by perinatal exposure to chemicals, and findings are consistent with delayed anovulation syndrome. Expand
Effects of diesel exhaust particles on the male reproductive system in strains of mice with different aryl hydrocarbon receptor responsiveness.
TLDR
The data suggest that DEP toxicity may affect the male reproductive system in an AhR-dependent manner, and a significant correlation was found between EROD activity and DSP or incidence of morphologically abnormal sperm. Expand
Lung carcinogenesis and formation of 8-hydroxy-deoxyguanosine in mice by diesel exhaust particles.
TLDR
The results suggest that the induction of oxidative DNA damage may be an important factor in the initiation of DEP-induced lung carcinogenesis, and that beta-carotene and high dietary fat may play a role in the regulation of tumour development via modulation of the formation of 8-OHdG. Expand
Dose-dependent alterations in gene expression and testosterone synthesis in the fetal testes of male rats exposed to di (n-butyl) phthalate.
TLDR
A coordinate, dose-dependent reduction in the expression of key genes and proteins involved in cholesterol transport and steroidogenesis and a corresponding reduction in testosterone in fetal testes following maternal exposure to DBP are demonstrated, at dose levels below which adverse effects are detected in the developing male reproductive tract.
