Airborne Particulate Matter and Mitochondrial Damage: A Cross-Sectional Study
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Background: Oxidative stress generation is a primary mechanism mediating the effects of Particulate Matter (PM) on human health. Although mitochondria are both the major intracellular source and target of oxidative stress, ...
Blood Telomere Length Attrition and Cancer Development in the Normative Aging Study Cohort
Background: Accelerated telomere shortening may cause cancer via chromosomal instability, making it a potentially useful biomarker. However, publications on blood telomere length (BTL) and cancer are inconsistent. We ...
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 ...
