Selenomethionine protects hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells against cobalt nanoparticles by stimulating antioxidant actions and DNA repair functions

The regulatory effects of CoNPs and SeMet on DNA damage response signal. CD34+ HSC/HPCs were treated with 10 μM SeMet and 200 μM CoNPs, alone or in combination, followed by western blot (A) and Co-IP assay (B). In Co-IP assay, HIF-1α, BRCA1 and cyclin B proteins were immunoprecipitated and the enrichment of ubiquitin in these proteins was further determined by western blot. *p
