Abstract:BackgroundCarbon nanotubes (CNTs) usage has rapidly increased in the last few decades due to their unique properties, exploited in various industrial and commercial products. Certain types of CNTs cause adverse health effects, including chronic inflammation and fibrosis. Despite the large number of in vitro and in vivo studies evaluating these effects, many important questions remain unanswered due to a lack of mechanistic understanding of how CNTs induce cellular stress responses. In order to predict CNT toxi… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
