7. During this process, molecular oxygen is reduced by the semiquinone intermediate to the superoxide radical that could undergo dismutation and reduction reactions and produce hydrogen peroxide. Fenton’s reactions could happen and generate the cytotoxic hydroxyl radicals when transition metals such as Fe2+ and Cu2+ exist with hydrogen peroxide. (Squadrito et al. 2001) The dithiothreitol (DTT) assay was used to determine if ultrafine particles (UFP) have a greater ability to generate ROS than coarse and fine particles on a microgram basis (Li et al.

In this study, Miraglia et al. (2013) have found a significant negative association between SSR and PM10 concentration in São Paulo city, Brazil. Although the causality between environmental exposures and declines in secondary sex ration are still controversial, some authors suggest that the SSR as a sentinel indicator of reproductive injury (Davis et al. 1998). g. prostate, ovarian and breast cancer). However, an increased risk of lung cancer associated with exposures to outdoor air pollution was consistently observed in studies from Europe, North America, and Asia (Fajersztajn et al.

K.  Furthermore, Verma et al. (2011) found that DTT-measured ROS in quasi-ultrafine particles suggested a low role for metals and a much more important role for organic carbon and PAHs. However, these differences may be the result in differences in the sensitivity of the various assays to specific particulate constituents. Thus, there remains considerable uncertainty in the concentrations of both exogenous and endogenous oxidants associated with airborne particulate matter and further study will be required to fully assess the role of ROS in inducing observed adverse human health effects.
