Gold nanoparticles: Mutagen, antimutagen, or comutagen?


The effect of ultrasmall gold nanoparticles (GNPs), both direct and in combination with the alkylating mutagen dipin, on the genetic structures of male germ cells in mice were studied using the meiotic micronucleus assay. It was shown for the first time that GNPs can exhibit mutagenic, antimutagenic, and comutagenic activity depending on the experimental… (More)
