Using nanoparticles to respond to cellular stress responses


Research Area: Biochemistry, Cell Biology

Authors: Shana J. Cameron, Farah Hosseinian, William G. Willmore

This is a review on the effects on nanoparticles (NPs), which are increasingly used in a wide variety of applications and products, on cellular stress responses. NP effects on oxidative stress, immune response and inflammation, mitochondrial function, detoxification enzymes, insulin signaling and calcium signaling are reviewed. The interactions between nanoparticles and proteins are emphasized and the biological implications of such interactions are reviewed.
