Newswise — In the October 2019 issue of Toxicological Sciences, articles on epigenetic changes to mouse livers; prenatal dexamethasone exposures in female rat offspring; and mechanisms of chronic fialuridine hepatotoxicity are highlighted. There also are open access articles on the comparison of models for predicting cardiotoxicity in humans and on the role of miR-380-3p (a microRNA dysregulated by PQ) in paraquat-induced toxicity in mouse neuronal cells.
