Institute of Experimental Medicine CAS

Department of Genetic Toxicology and Epigenetics (DGTE) is focused on the mechanisms of toxic effects of engineered nanoparticles as well as combustion originated fine and ultrafine particles. Major attention is paid to the interaction of particles and their components with biomolecules in human cell lines. Currently, DGTE is focused on the role of ultrafine particles in the etiology of neurodegenerative diseases. The methods include various tests of cytotoxicity, the detection of reactive oxygen species and oxidative damage of DNA, proteins and lipids (ELISA), analyzes of genotoxicity (Comet assay, DNA adducts) and clastogenic effects (micronucleus test and cytogenetic analysis by FISH), as well as analyzes of protein expression (western blotting) and DNA repair activity (NER and NHEJ). To get more insight into the mechanism of biological effects of particles or their extracts, the toxicogenomic methods (microarrays and next generation sequencing) and RT-PCR are used. Most of these tests are also available to external users from research, universities, industry and academia via the Research Infrastructure NanoEnviCz (www.nanoenvicz.cz).

1. Benzo[a]pyrene is associated with dysregulated myelo-lymphoid hematopoiesis in asthmatic children

Exposure to B[a]P might contribute to concurrent suppression of pro-inflammatory (e.g. NF-κB mediated Natural Killer T cells), and activation of anti-inflammatory pathways (e.g. IL10-secreting CD8+ T cells) in the urban asthmatic children. In addition, B[a]P appears to elevate heme biosynthesis, which in turn, promotes neutrophilic metamyelocyte expansion and reduction of CD71+ erythroid cells.

2. The biological effects of complete gasoline engine emissions exposure in a 3D human airway model (MucilAirTM) and in human bronchial epithelial cells (BEAS-2B)

The aim of this study was real-time exposure of complete combustion emissions in two cell models. The models used were the BEAS-2B lung epithelial cell line and the MucilAirTM 3D lung model. To allow direct contact of combustion emissions and cells, both models were cultured on porous membranes. A unique exposure system has been created to allow real time direct expose to diluted exhaust gases. One-day and five-day repeated exposure showed higher tolerance and more realistic results in complex 3D models than commonly used lung cells.

3. Molecular responses in THP-1 macrophage-like cells exposed to diverse nanoparticles

Nanomaterials (NM), as foreign structures, are recognized by immune cells, especially by macrophages. In this study, we compared the effects of diverse NM (TiO2, ZnO, SiO2, Ag) on THP-1 macrophage-like cells. While no significant effects were observed in cells exposed to TiO2, the other NM induced production of proinflammatory molecules, with Ag exhibiting also immunosupressive effects. The obtained results contribute to the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of NM toxicity, emphasing the role of immune cells and differences among various types of NM.

Important results in 2018

1. Transcriptional response to organic compounds from diverse gasoline and biogasoline fuel emissions in human lung cells

We collected and characterized gasoline exhaust particles (GEPs) produced by Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine running neat gasoline fuel (E0) and its blends with 15% ethanol (E15), 25% n-butanol (n- But25) and 25% isobutanol (i-But25). To study the toxic effects of organic compounds extracted from GEPs, we analyzed gene expression profiles in human lung BEAS-2B cells. Our results indicate that i-But25 extract possessed the weakest genotoxic potency possibly due to the low PAH content.

2. Gene expression profiling in healthy newborns from diverse localities of the Czech Republic

We analyzed whole genome expression in cord blood leukocytes of 202 newborns from the Czech Republic, differing localities and levels of air pollution. We aimed to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) and pathways in relation to locality. The highest number of DEGs was found in samples from Karvina. A pathway analysis revealed a deregulation of processes associated with cell growth, apoptosis or cellular homeostasis, immune response-related processes or oxidative stress response.

3. Inhalation of ZnO nanoparticles: splice junction expression and alternative splicing in mice

Biological effects of ZnO nanoparticles inhalation were investigated in mice. The inhalation affected splice junctions expression in genes participating in oxidative stress, apoptosis, immune response, inflammation and DNA repair. Further, alternative splicing in oxidative stress and inflammation-related genes was affected. In summary, ZnO nanoparticles have a potential negative effect on biological systems.

1. Ultrafine and Fine Particles and Hospital Admissions in Central Europe. Results from the UFIREG Study

We investigated effects of ultrafine and fine particulate matter on cause-specific hospital admissions in Central and Eastern European cities. We found that a 2,750 particles/cm3 increase of ultrafine particles caused an increase in the risk of respiratory hospital admissions. We also found increases in the risk of cardiovascular and respiratory admissions associated with exposure to particulate matter of aerodynamic diameter < 2.5 µm.

2. Adaptation of the human population to the environment: Current knowledge, clues from Czech cytogenetic and "omics" biomonitoring studies and possible mechanisms

The main aim of this review was to provide a comprehensive overview of the last decade of Czech biomonitoring research, concerning the effect of various levels of air pollution and radiation, on the differently exposed population groups. A detailed analysis of data leads to a hypothesis of the versatile mechanism of adaptation to environmental stressors via DNA methylation settings which may even originate in prenatal development, and help to reduce the resulting DNA damage levels.

3. Blends of butanol and hydrotreated vegetable oils as drop-in replacement for diesel engines: Effects on combustion and emissions

We investigated the performance of a mix of two emerging biofuels, butanol and hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), in an Iveco Tector diesel engine. HVO, a possible drop-in fuel for diesel engines features excellent combustion and emissions characteristics. All biofuels exhibited, relative to diesel fuel, a decrease in the concentration of particulate PAHs and n-alkanes in emissions, while the concentrations of hopanes and steranes originated from lubricating oil were comparable across all fuels. Cold starts yielded about 15% higher concentrations of both particulate matter and particulate organic compounds in emissions than hot startsparticulate matter and particulate organic compounds in emissions than hot starts.

1. Comparative Analysis of Toxic Responses of Organic Extracts from Diesel and Selected Alternative Fuels Engine Emissions in Human Lung BEAS-2B Cells

Exhaust particles from four different diesel/biodiesel fuels were collected, organic compounds were extracted and human lung cells were exposed  to each extract. Chemical analysis revealed that extract from neat hydrotreated vegetable oil NexBTL contained the lowest content of carcinogenic PAHs and gene expression profiling identified deregulation of numerous genes and processes common for all extract as well as specific for each extract. Despite subtle differences in overall toxic effects induced by different diesel or alternative fuels, NexBTL extract exhibited the weakest toxicity comparing to others.

Sampling, organic extraction and toxicogenomic analysis of different diesel/alternative fuel exhaust particles.
Exhaust particles from standard diesel (B0), biodiesel (methylesters of rapeseed oil) in its neat form (B100) and 30% by volume blend with diesel fuel (B30), and neat hydrotreated vegetable oil (NEXBTL100) was collected and characterized. Global gene expression changes were analyzed in BEAS-2B cells following 4 h and 24 h treatment with orgaic compounds extracted from particles. The subtoxic concentrations of 50 µg extract/mL induced a similar molecular response. The common processes induced after 4 h treatment included antioxidant defense, metabolism of xenobiotics and lipids, suppression of pro-apoptotic stimuli, or induction of plasminogen activating cascade; 24 h treatment affected fewer processes, particularly those involved in detoxification of xenobiotics, including PAHs. The majority of distinctively deregulated genes detected after both 4 h and 24 h treatment were induced by NEXBTL100; the deregulated genes included, e.g., those involved in antioxidant defense and cell cycle regulation and proliferation.

2. Urinary 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2‘-deoxyguanosine analysis by an improved ELISA: An inter-laboratory comparison study

We performed an inter-laboratory comparison of 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2‘-deoxyguanosine by ELISA using standardized conditions, compared the ELISA results with high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and performed identification of compounds that may contribute to the discrepancy between methods. Assay standardization significantly improved inter-laboratory agreement, although some variability caused by aromatic and heterocyclic compounds and saccharides is still observed.

3. The impact of silica encapsulated cobalt zinc ferrite nanoparticles on DNA, lipids and proteins of rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells

Cobalt-zinc-ferrite nanoparticles (NPs) encapsulated by amorphous silica were tested to assess their effect on DNA, lipids and proteins in rat mesenchymal stem cells. No significant cytotoxic effects were observed, except for the highest dose of CZF-NPs, that slowed down cell proliferation and induced damage to DNA, lipids and proteins. The results suggest that the silica-coated CZF-NPs, when applied at a non-toxic dose, represent a promising contrast agent for cell labeling for magnetic resonance analysis.

1. Analysis of genetic damage in lymphocytes of former uranium processing workers

The frequency of cells containing micronuclei (MN) and the presence of centromeres in the MN were analyzed in lymphocytes of men from Southern Bohemia (former workers of a former uranium processing plant „MAPE Mydlovary“ and controls). No differences were found between formerly exposed workers and the control group. Moreover former workers with X-ray examination had significantly lower level of DNA damage than the control group. Possible reason of this results may be adaptation of the organism.

2. Day-to-day variability of toxic events induced by organic compounds bound to size segregated atmospheric aerosol

The temporal variability of size-segregated aerosol mass collected on a daily basis during the winter period in highly polluted districts of Ostrava city as well as toxic effects of organic compounds extracted from each size fraction were quantified. We revealed that upper accumulation mode fraction (0.5 < dae < 1 μm) comprises most of the aerosol mass and contained 44% of total c-PAHs while ultrafine fraction (< 0.17 μm) contained only 11% of c-PAHs. DNA adduct levels and dioxin-like activity strongly correlated with both aerosol mass and c-PAH concentrations suggesting genotoxicity as a major toxic effect of organic compounds bound to size-segregated aerosol.

3. Reduced gene expression levels after chronic exposure to high concenrations of air pollutants

We analyzed the effect of air pollution on gene expression in subjects living in Prague and in the polluted Ostrava region. We expected to observe changes in expression of DNA repair genes in subjects from the Ostrava region. Unexpectedly, the changes were found in Prague subjects, particularly in genes associated with immune response and neurodegenerative diseases. The results suggest that chronic exposure to air pollution may result in adaptation of the organism with possible negative health effects.
