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 ...
Effects of particulate matter exposure on blood 5-hydroxymethylation: results from the Beijing truck driver air pollution study
(Taylor & Francis, 2015)
Previous studies have reported epigenetic changes induced by environmental exposures. However, previous investigations did not distinguish 5-methylcytosine (5mC) from a similar oxidative form with opposite functions, ...
Particulate Air Pollution Exposure and Expression of Viral and Human MicroRNAs in Blood: The Beijing Truck Driver Air Pollution Study
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2015)
Background: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are post-transcriptional gene suppressors and potential mediators of environmental effects. In addition to human miRNAs, viral miRNAs expressed from latent viral sequences are detectable in ...
