Comparative embryotoxicity and proteotoxicity of three carrier solvents to zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos.
The present study examines the effects of ethanol (ETOH), dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and acetone on zebrafish embryos and the implications of the observed results on the use of these solvents toExpand

Combined effects of temperature and cadmium on developmental parameters and biomarker responses in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos
Abstract To determine the interactions between temperature and cadmium on zebrafish ( Danio rerio ) development, fertilized eggs were exposed to combinations of three temperature levels (21 °C, 26Expand

Assessing contamination levels of Laguna Lake sediments (Philippines) using a contact assay with zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos.
The present study investigated the suitability of a sediment contact assay using zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos to evaluate the degree of lake sediment contamination. As endpoints, developmentalExpand

DNA damage induced by genotoxicants in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos after contact exposure to freeze-dried sediment and sediment extracts from Laguna Lake (The Philippines) as measured by the
Laguna Lake, Philippines, is utilised as a resource for drinking and irrigation water and a major source of animal protein for more than 11 million residents. However, it also serves as a huge sinkExpand

A novel contact assay for testing genotoxicity of chemicals and whole sediments in zebrafish embryos.
Broad consensus exists that whole-sediment exposure protocols represent the most realistic scenario to simulate in situ exposure conditions. So far, however, several endpoints including genotoxicityExpand

Assessing water quality in a tropical lake using biomarkers in zebrafish embryos: developmental toxicity and stress protein responses
In order to achieve a more substantial appraisal of lake water quality, the assessment must not be based only on chemical measurements and analyses of the water itself, but even more so on the impactExpand

The versatile, changing, and advancing roles of fish in sediment toxicity assessment—a review
PurposeSediments serve as integral and dynamic parts of our aquatic systems. Within the last 15 to 20 years, however, the scientific community has begun noticing deterioration of sediment quality atExpand
