Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a class of mutagenic and tumorigenic environmental contaminants. Although the mechanisms by which PAHs induce cancer in experimental animals have been extensively studied and the metabolic activation pathways have been determined, the environmental fate of PAHs and the phototoxicity exerted by PAHs, as well as their photoreaction products formed in the environment, have received much less attention. In this review, the formation of oxygenated PAHs… Expand
UVA Photoirradiation of Nitro-Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons—Induction of Reactive Oxygen Species and Formation of Lipid Peroxides †
TLDR
The results indicated that all but two of the nitro-PAHs can induce lipid peroxidation, andMechanistic studies suggest that lipid per oxidation by nitro, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons is mediated by free radicals generated in the reaction. Expand
A review of human and animals exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: Health risk and adverse effects, photo-induced toxicity and regulating effect of microplastics.
TLDR
It is highlighted the importance of paying attention to the joint bio-toxicity caused by PAHs-MPs interactions, as well as the research gaps, and pointed out the priority of further studies. Expand
Metal-Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Mixture Toxicity in Hyalella azteca. 2. Metal Accumulation and Oxidative Stress as Interactive Co-toxic Mechanisms.
TLDR
No evidence is found to suggest that interactive effects on ROS production were involved in the more-than-additive mortality of Cu-PHE and Cu- PHQ mixtures, however, PHQ increased the tissue concentration of Cu in juvenile H. azteca, providing a potential mechanism for the observed more- Than-Additive mortality.

TLDR
Among the compounds tested, 1-NP was the most phototoxic: it was more than 1000 times more toxic under the light conditions than in darkness and at the same light levels, pyrene was notPhototoxic. Expand
Toxicological effects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their derivatives on respiratory cells
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are found in ambient aerosols and particulate matter. Experimental studies have shown that PAHs and related chemicals can induce toxicological effects. TheExpand
