Mitochondrial haplogroups modify the effect of black carbon on age-related cognitive impairment
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Background: Traffic-related air pollution has been linked with impaired cognition in older adults, possibly due to effects of oxidative stress on the brain. Mitochondria are the main source of cellular oxidation. Haplogroups ...
Ambient particulate matter and microRNAs in extracellular vesicles: a pilot study of older individuals
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Air pollution from particulate matter (PM) has been linked to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality; however the underlying biological mechanisms remain to be uncovered. Gene regulation by microRNAs (miRNAs) ...
