Serum exposed to nanoparticle carbon black displays increased potential to induce macrophage migration

Journal Article
Barlow, P., Donaldson, K., MacCallum, J., Clouter, A., & Stone, V. (2005)
Serum exposed to nanoparticle carbon black displays increased potential to induce macrophage migration. Toxicology Letters, 155(3), 397-401. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.toxlet.2004.11.006
Objective: To assess whether fine and ultrafine particles (nanoparticles) have the capacity to activate factors in serum that would induce macrophage migration. This is a mode...

Carbon black nanoparticles induce type II epithelial cells to release chemotaxins for alveolar macrophages.

Journal Article
Barlow, P. G., Clouter-Baker, A., Donaldson, K., MacCallum, J., & Stone, V. (2005)
Carbon black nanoparticles induce type II epithelial cells to release chemotaxins for alveolar macrophages. Particle and fibre toxicology, 2(1), 11-24. https://doi.org/10.1186/1743-8977-2-11
Background - Alveolar macrophages are a key cell in dealing with particles deposited in the lungs and in determining the subsequent response to that particle exposure. Nanopar...

Soybean ferritin expression in saccharomyces cerevisiae modulates iron accumulation and resistance to elevated iron concentrations.

Journal Article
de Llanos, R., Martínez-Garay, C. A., Fita-Torró, J., Romero, A. M., Martínez-Pastor, M. T., & Puig, S. (2016)
Soybean ferritin expression in saccharomyces cerevisiae modulates iron accumulation and resistance to elevated iron concentrations. Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 82(10), 3052-3060. https://doi.org/10.1128/AEM.00305-16
Fungi, including the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, lack ferritin and use vacuoles as iron storage organelles. This work explored how plant ferritin expression influenced bak...
