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 ...
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 ...
