Autism spectrum disorder and mercury toxicity: use of genomic and epigenetic methods to solve the etiologic puzzle

INTRODUCTION Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is an increasingly prevalent neurodevelopmental condition of unknown etiology. Importantly, reported manifestations of low-level exposure to mercury, a highly neurotoxic heavy metal, are similar to those of ASD. In the past several years, evidence has accumulated linking the risk of toxic manifestations of low-level mercury exposure to particular genes, mutations, and epigenetic changes. The fields of genomics, genetics, and epigenetics are rapidly

Developmental neurotoxicants and the vulnerable male brain: a systematic review of suspected neurotoxicants that disproportionally affect males

-specific effects, with exposed males being more affected (than similarly exposed females), were: lead, Thimerosal/ethylmercury, some organochlorine pesticides (e.g., dieldrin, endosulfan, and heptachlor), and air pollution. The next group identified were neurotoxicants exhibiting gender-specific neurotoxic effects, with males being somewhat (but not consistently) more affected than females: mercury vapor, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and organophosphate pesticides. Finally, there was a group of

Fabrication and Characterization of High Performance Micro Impedance Inclinometer

In the study, a novel micro impedance inclinometer is presented, consisting of a glass substrate, Cr electrodes and a mercury pendulum. The output signal of the proposed inclinometer is read from the moving metal pendulum based on an LED array measurement scheme. A mercury pendulum mass is used for the inclinometer. The adhesion between the liquid metal and the substrate surface is reduced by etching or sandblasting the substrate surface. Experimental results show the developed inclinometer has

toxic at high concentration. Soil, water, and air are the major environmental compartments, which are affected by heavy metals pollution leading to many adverse impacts (Tchounwou et al. 2012). In this study, we focused on copper, silver, and mercury. These heavy metals are more and more used in many applications and are also found in different areas worldwide (Kerfoot et al. 2002; 2004). Copper is an essential element that is toxic at high concentrations (Chihomvu et al. 2015). High cytoplasmic

Development of Miniature Modular Digital Altimeter

Altimetry is defined as the method of measuring heights above sea level. Measuring height has been achieved by various methodologies in the past, ranging from U-shaped columns of mercury or water, sealed pressurized balloons of air or more modern approaches such as the Global Positioning System (GPS). However, all these methods are either quite bulky or power hungry and so a low cost, light weight unit would be useful for various applications. Shown here is a small microprocessor controlled
