Several investigators have revealed that the nanostructure influences the adhesion, differentiation, and migration of bone marrow cells significantly [9-12] and that the fates of cells on NT arrays are size dependent [9, 13, 14], while the optimal diameter is still controversial.
At present, whether or not FA can induce the increase of micronucleus rate in animal cells is still controversial.5 It was reported that short time inhalation of FA can induce the increase of micronucleus rate in bone marrow cells of exposed mice.6-8 Our recent studies showed that the micronucleus rate of bone marrow cells in the experimental mice was increased by acute oral administration of FA.9 In the present study, the male mice were chronically exposed to FA through inhalation.
