This pilot study aimed to correlate blood levels of three heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, and lead) with peripheral blood mRNA expression of 98 genes implicated in stress, toxicity, inflammation, and autoimmunity, in 24 participants from the Long Island Study of Seafood Consumption. The expression of three genes was associated with mercury, four with cadmium, and five with lead, although none were significant after multiple testing correction. Little evidence was found to associate metal exposure with mRNA abundance for the tested genes. Future work should provide a more complete picture of physiological reactions to heavy metal exposure.
