ROS-generating/ARE-activating capacity of metals in roadway particulate matter deposited in urban environment.

Abstract

In this study we investigated the possible causal role for soluble metal species extracted from roadway traffic emissions in promoting particulate matter (PM)-induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and antioxidant response element (ARE) promoter activation. To this end, these responses have been evaluated in alveolar macrophage and epithelial lung… (More)
