Comprehensive studies of ENM toxicity and bioactivity remain challenging, despite their growing use for industrial and biomedical applications. Furthermore, mechanistic predictive models and data necessary to understand the factors contributing to their pathology are largely lacking. Epigenetic alterations are known to hold substantial potential as biomarkers for environmental exposures; this, in turn, may provide insight into mechanisms of environmentally related diseases and allow for a better understanding of disease etiology. The primary goal of this study is to determine epigenetic alterations associated with a DHA-supplemented diet and MWCNT exposure, and the relationship to decreased inflammation and development of lung disease.
