New frontiers in nanotoxicology: Gut microbiota/microbiome-mediated effects of engineered nanomaterials.

Abstract

It has been recently recognized that the gut microbiota, the community of organisms living within the gastrointestinal tract is an integral part of the human body, and that its genoma (the microbiome) interacts with the genes expressed by the cells of the host organism. Several important physiological functions require the cooperation of microbiota… (More)
