High levels of particulate matter in ambient air are associated with increased respiratory and cardiovascular health problems. It has been hypothesised that it is the ultrafine particle fraction (diameter <100 nm) that is largely responsible for these effects. To evaluate the associated mechanisms on a molecular level, the current authors applied an expression profiling approach. Healthy mice were exposed to either ultrafine carbon particles (UFCPs; mass concentration 380 microg x m(-3)) or… CONTINUE READING
