Air pollution exposure and lung function in highly exposed subjects in Beijing, China: a repeated-measure study
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Background: Exposure to ambient particulate matter (PM) has been associated with reduced lung function. Elemental components of PM have been suggested to have critical roles in PM toxicity, but their contribution to ...
Inhalable particulate matter and mitochondrial DNA copy number in highly exposed individuals in Beijing, China: a repeated-measure study
(BioMed Central, 2013)
Background: Mitochondria are both a sensitive target and a primary source of oxidative stress, a key pathway of air particulate matter (PM)-associated diseases. Mitochondrial DNA copy number (MtDNAcn) is a marker of ...
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) ...
