We demonstrate for 24 metal oxide (MOx) nanoparticles that it is possible to use conduction band energy levels to delineate their toxicological potential at cellular and whole animal levels. Among the materials, the overlap of conduction band energy (E(c)) levels with the cellular redox potential (-4.12 to -4.84 eV) was strongly correlated to the ability of Co(3)O(4), Cr(2)O(3), Ni(2)O(3), Mn(2)O(3), and CoO nanoparticles to induce oxygen radicals, oxidative stress, and inflammation.

Safety-by-Design of Metal Oxide Nanoparticles Based on the Regulation of their Energy Edges.
TLDR
Regulating Ef far away from Ev becomes a feasible safe-by-design approach to achieve safe MOx NPs.
Toxicological Assessment of CoO and La2O3 Metal Oxide Nanoparticles in Human Small Airway Epithelial Cells.
TLDR
Analysis of cellular toxicity, production of superoxide radicals and alterations in gene expression related to oxidative stress, and cellular death at 6 and 24 h following exposure to CoO and La2O3(administered doses: 0, 5, 25, and 50 µg/ml) nanoparticles provide evidence that different toxicological modes of action were involved in Coo and La3metal oxide nanoparticle-induced cellular toxicity.
Cytotoxicity of semiconductor nanoparticles in A549 cells is attributable to their intrinsic oxidant activity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that semiconductor characteristics of NP are crucial for the type and intensity of the cytotoxic effects, suggesting ROS generation as the main cytotoxicity mechanism.
Reduction of pulmonary toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles by phosphonate-based surface passivation
The wide application of engineered nanoparticles has induced increasing exposure to humans and environment, which led to substantial concerns on their biosafety. Some metal oxides (MOx) have shown
Copper Oxide Nanoparticle-Induced Acute Inflammatory Response and Injury in Murine Lung Is Ameliorated by Synthetic Secoisolariciresinol Diglucoside (LGM2605)
TLDR
This work identified chlorination toxicity as a damaging consequence of inflammation and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activation, resulting in macromolecular damage and cell damage/death in mice lungs, and hypothesized that the inhalation of CuO-NPs elicits an inflammatory response resulting in chlorination damage in cells and lung tissues.
Redox Activity and Nano-Bio Interactions Determine the Skin Injury Potential of Co3O4-Based Metal Oxide Nanoparticles towards Zebrafish.
TLDR
Using transgenic zebrafish Tg(LysC:eGFP), it is shown in real-time that the redox active nanoparticles induced skin injury and activated the infiltration of immune cells, indicating such injury was transient and recoverable.
Nickel oxide nanoparticles induced DNA damages in human liver cells
TLDR
The results showed that cellular uptake of NiO-NPs led to morphological changes in the cells, and caused cell death mainly by apoptosis, and Genotoxicity and oxidative damage were observed to be in a dosedependent manner.
Underlying mechanisms of reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress photoinduced by graphene and its surface-functionalized derivatives
Graphene can be modified by different functional groups through various transformation processes in the environment. The toxicological activity of graphene is closely related to its ability to
Silica Nanoparticle-Generated ROS as a Predictor of Cellular Toxicity: Mechanistic Insights and Safety by Design.
TLDR
Overall, spectroscopic and in vitro studies correlate well and implicate production of ROS from a surface-catalyzed reaction as a predictor of cellular toxicity, and demonstrate that mesoporous materials are intrinsically less toxic than nonporous materials, and that surface functionalization can mitigate toxicity in non porosity materials by reducing free radical production.

A theoretical framework for predicting the oxidative stress potential of oxide nanoparticles
TLDR
A theoretical model is proposed that predicts the oxidative stress potential of oxide nanoparticles by looking at the ability of these materials to perturb the intracellular redox state and would guide the development of more rational and efficient screening strategies avoiding random or exhaustive testing of new nanomaterials.
Comparison of the mechanism of toxicity of zinc oxide and cerium oxide nanoparticles based on dissolution and oxidative stress properties.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that metal oxide nanoparticles induce a range of biological responses that vary from cytotoxic to cytoprotective and can only be properly understood by using a tiered test strategy such as that developed for oxidative stress and adapted to study other aspects of nanoparticle toxicity.
Comparative study of cytotoxicity, oxidative stress and genotoxicity induced by four typical nanomaterials: the role of particle size, shape and composition
TLDR
The comparative analysis demonstrated that particle composition probably played a primary role in the cytotoxic effects of different nanoparticles, however, the potential genotoxicity might be mostly attributed to particle shape.
Comparison of the abilities of ambient and manufactured nanoparticles to induce cellular toxicity according to an oxidative stress paradigm.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ROS generation and oxidative stress are a valid test paradigm to compare NP toxicity, and particle interactions with cellular components are capable of generating oxidative stress.
Efficacy of Simple Short-Term in Vitro Assays for Predicting the Potential of Metal Oxide Nanoparticles to Cause Pulmonary Inflammation
TLDR
Potency in generating free radicals in vitro did not predict inflammation, whereas alumina 2 had no free radical activity but was inflammogenic, and the hemolysis assay was correct in predicting the proinflammatory potential of 12 of 13 of the particles examined.

TLDR
The results demonstrate that NPs cannot be viewed as a single hazard entity and that risk assessment should be performed separately and with caution for different NPs.
