- ... Hormesis is a dose-response phenomenon that, when applied to nanomaterial-biological interactions, refers to growth stimulation at low doses and growth inhibition at high doses. MUDENG (Mu-2-related death-inducing gene, MuD) is involved in cell death signaling. Astrocytes, the major glial cell type in the central nervous system, are a major source of brain tumors. In this study, we investigated wh ...
