|Abstract: ||奈米科技是近年來最炙手可熱的產業之一，越來越多的奈米產品被應用在工業與日常生活中。然而，隨著奈米科技的蓬勃發展，奈米材料的潛在毒性也逐漸受到人們的重視。許多研究人員投身其中，致力於了解奈米物質的傳輸與毒性機制，期望能提供政府機構未來制定相關法規的參考資料。過去奈米物質毒性實驗中大多採用沉浸式in vitro的方式，此方法雖然操作較為簡單且成本較低，但近年來越來越多研究人員對此方法提出質疑，認為應用此一方法所進行的生物毒性實驗無法完全代表暴露物質原本的毒性強弱。氣液介面式暴露技術能克服傳統沉浸式暴露的缺點並可模擬真實情況中微粒與人類呼吸道的暴露行為，故許多學者開始採用此一方式進行生物毒性實驗，但氣液介面暴露技術仍然存在部分尚未釐清的疑慮，本研究目標即為觀察氣相奈米銀微粒沉浸於液相之後其物化特性的變化程度，並實際建立一套靜電式氣液介面(ESP-ALI)暴露系統進行生物毒性實驗，再與沉浸式實驗結果相比及討論兩種實驗方法的差異性。|
氣相奈米銀微粒沉浸於兩種不同溶液(DI水與DMEM-H medium)後，其粒徑大小皆有明顯上升的趨勢，顯示氣相奈米銀微粒沉浸於液體之後會發生劇烈的聚集行為。界達電位方面，沉浸於DI水的奈米銀微粒維持在-20至-30 mV，DMEM-H medium的奈米銀微粒則維持在-5至-15 mV，細胞介達電位多為負值，奈米銀微粒與生物接觸機率降低。銀離子釋出實驗方面，暴露四小時後，DI水中銀離子濃度可達0.8至1.5 ppb，DMEM-H medium中銀離子濃度為3.5至5.1 ppb，此一範圍的銀離子濃度足以造成部分生物死亡，此外，DMEM-H medium中的無機鹽類會與銀銀子結合，故DMEM-H medium的銀離子濃度會隨存放時間增長而下降。
;Traditional submerged exposure method has some drawbacks and limits which may influence test results. An air-liquid-interface (ALI) exposure method can conquer those disadvantages of submerged exposure method, so more and more researchers apply this method to do nanomaterials toxicity test. However, the physical and chemical properties of test materials which may change in the ‘exposure processes’ is rarely be evaluated by ALI exposure method. In addition, the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) make its use in numerous household products, water and air puriﬁcation. Researchers also have been investigating the potential toxicity of AgNPs. This research investigated the physical and chemical properties of air phase silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) when they immersed into different liquid, and established an ESP-ALI exposure system to do silver nanoparticles biological toxicity test, and then compared these results with traditional submerged exposure method.
After immersed into DI water, particle size of liquid phase AgNPs would become larger than air phase AgNPs. It presented AgNPs would aggregate dramatically when air phase AgNPs immersed into liquids. Zeta potential of liquid phase AgNPs would approach to -38 mV, and then increase with storage time. In brief, particle size becoming larger and zeta potential showed a negative value implied that its toxicity would decrease when air phase AgNPs immersed into DI water. In terms of water quality, pH and dissolved oxygen in AgNPs suspension solution maintained a constant value with storage time increasing. Thus it implied that air phase AgNPs immersed into DI water would not affect pH and dissolved oxygen of DI water. Conductivity increased with increasing storage time perhaps due to the Ag+ ion release. Furthermore, the released Ag+ concentrations increased almost linearly within 4 hours. After exposure at 4-hour point, Ag+ concentrations of AgNPs suspension would approach to 0.8~1.5 ppb, this concentration range may make some organisms dead.
Furthermore, after immersed into DMEM-H medium, liquid phase AgNPs would aggregate significantly, and particle size can be even larger than one immersed into DI water. This is because under high ionic strength condition, the attractive force between particles became dominant over the repulsive force. Zeta potential of liquid phase AgNPs would approach to -5 mV initially, and then decrease with storage time increasing. In terms of water quality, pH and dissolved oxygen would not change with storage time increasing, and however, conductivity had a trend of rise first and then fall. It may be because Ag+ can bind with Cl- and decrease the ionic strength of sample. Released Ag+ concentrations also had a similar trend with conductivity of AgNPs suspension solution.
Our ESP-ALI exposure system can make cell viability above 80% when exposure time shorter than 3 hours. It presented our ESP-ALI exposure system can use in short exposure experiments. Compared with submerged exposure method, ESP-ALI exposure system only needed lower AgNPs dose to make biomarkers easily detected (cell viability, cell autophagy and apoptosis), and it implied submerged exposure method had a disadvantage of overestimated dose. However, compared with ESP-ALI exposure system, submerged exposure method needed lower dose to induce necrosis, and it implied different stresses on the test cell via different exposure methods might cause different cell death mechanisms.
