Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are extensively used in many commercial products because of their antimicrobial properties and they are therefore released into the environment from various products. A number of genes, especially those representing antioxidant and detoxification pathways, have potential application for studying mechanism of action of environmental pollutants at molecular level. In the present study, the stress responsive transcription of antioxidant and detoxification genes in… CONTINUE READING
