Gene context of Environmental Pollution

  • The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression of PPAR subtypes and their cellular distribution patterns in the liver of gray mullet Mugil cephalus, a fish species widely distributed in estuaries and coastal areas in Europe and used as sentinel of environmental pollution [24].
  • Exacerbations of COPD are thought to be caused by complex interactions between the host, bacteria, viruses, and environmental pollution [25].
  • The umu-microtest is a miniaturized automated short-term test version proposed for screening of umuC-dependent mutagenic potentials of chemicals relevant to environmental pollution, river water and industrial waste water [26].
  • The effect of environmental pollution on the function of enzymes of active skeleton muscle. Part 1: An adequate method to study the effect of metal ions on the activity of phosphofructokinase [27].
  • Human health, the Great Lakes, and environmental pollution: a 1994 perspective [28].
