Gene Expression Changes in Rat Liver
The expression profile of genes involved in oxidative stress, metal toxicity, apoptosis/cell cycle, and protein folding was investigated in liver and testis of Sprague-Dawley rats at different time intervals after i.t. instillation of AgNP (20 nm, 50 μg/rat). At 7 days, selective changes in the expression of genes encoding oxidative stress-related enzymes, namely Gpx1, SOD, FMO2 and GAPDH were observed in hepatic and testicular tissues. View more....
