Unambiguous Findings: SiO2, Carbon Black, & SWCNTs Trigger AutoImmune Disease Induced by Arg > Citrulline Transformation

Citrullination of proteins: a common post-translational modification pathway induced by different nanoparticles in vitro and in vivo




Trinity College Dublin Scientists Establish Link Between Autoimmune...


" " The result was clear and convincing: all types of nanoparticles in both the TCD and US study were causing an identical response in human cells and in the lungs of mice, manifesting in the specific transformation of the amino acid arginine into the molecule called citrulline which can lead to the development of autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. " " 


" " TCD's Professor Volkov says: "The research establishes a clear link between autoimmune diseases and nanoparticles." " "

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
