The use of systems toxicology to re-construct molecular pathways of adverse outcome: Can chemical mixture toxicity be predicted to aid environmental risk assessment and regulation?. - CB0457

Description
reverse engineering approaches can lead to the identification of health impacts of complex mixtures of environmental pollutants on organisms and demonstrate the linkages between toxicants and health impacts via alterations in molecular signalling pathways and metabolism.
