Newswise — The November 2017 issue of Toxicological Sciences (ToxSci) features 15 new research papers, showcasing the latest findings in toxicology.
As Editor-in-Chief Gary W. Miller writes in his Look Inside column in the new issue, "The Look Inside ToxSci feature was designed to highlight exciting research in the journal. I anticipated that selecting four papers to highlight would require some effort and thought. This issue, however, was troubling. I found it extremely difficult to choose only four articles. The quality of the content in this issue was just superb. In addition to those [chosen], there are top papers on the aryl hydrocarbon receptor, adverse outcome pathways, and the impact of phthalates on in vitro fertilization. When I encourage you to look inside, it is not just at those articles highlighted below, it is the entire issue. The November issue is case in point: ToxSci contains the most influential research in the field of toxicology."
The Editor's Highlights in the November 2017 issue are:
- "Ah Receptor Activation Potentiates Neutrophil Chemoattractant (C-X-C Motif) Ligand 5 Expression in Keratinocytes and Skin" by KJ Smith et al.
- "Comparative Dose-Response Analysis of Liver and Kidney Transcriptomic Effects of Trichloroethylene and Tetrachloroethylene in B6C3F1 Mouse" by Y-H Zou et al.
- "High-Throughput Functional Genomics Identifies Modulators of TCE Metabolite Genotoxicity and Candidate Susceptibility Genes" by VY De La Rosa et al.
- "Pregnancy Alters Aflatoxin B1 Metabolism and Increases DNA Damage in Mouse Liver" by K Sriwattanapong et al.
