Comparative teratogenicity of chlorpyrifos and malathion on Xenopus laevis development.
The embryotoxic potential of chlorpyrifos (CPF) and malathion (MTN), two organophosphorus insecticides (OPs), was evaluated by modified Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay-Xenopus (FETAX). CPF and MTNExpand

Exposure to the organophosphorus pesticide chlorpyrifos inhibits acetylcholinesterase activity and affects muscular integrity in Xenopus laevis larvae.
The effect of organophosphate pesticide chlorpyrifos (CPF) on acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity and on skeletal muscle development in Xenopus laevis larvae was studied. To achieve our purposeExpand

Non-neuronal cell modulation relieves neuropathic pain: efficacy of the endogenous lipid palmitoylethanolamide.
We have previously shown that the endogenous lipid palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) induced relief of neuropathic pain through an action upon receptors located on the nociceptive pathway. Recently, it hasExpand

Differential modulation of cytochrome P-450 1A and P-glycoprotein expression by aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonists and thyroid hormone in Xenopus laevis liver and intestine.
Several defence mechanisms, such as cytochrome P450 1A (CYP1A) enzymes and P-glycoprotein (Pgp), may influence the intracellular concentration and consequently the toxicity of xenobiotics. TheExpand
