E-MTAB-6331 - DNA methylation profiling of BEAS-2B cells exposed to low doses of Ag nanoparticles for 6 weeks
Last updated on 5 February 2018, released on 30 April 2018
Human bronchial lung cells (BEAS-2B) were treated for 6 weeks with low doses (1 µg/mL) of Ag nanoparticles (10 nm citrate-coated). At the end of the exposure control and treated samples were submitted for DNA methylation analysis (Illumina 450k). The overall goal of this experiment was to evaluate potential epigenetic changes associated with low-dose, long-term exposure to Ag nanoparticles.
