Metal-based nanoparticles (NPs) such as silver (Ag) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) are widely used in industrial and household applications. Because of the increasing use of such manufactured NPs and their release into the natural environment, NPs are likely to have a widespread geographic distribution. Concerns over discharge of considerable amounts of these(More)
The developmental toxicity of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) was investigated following exposure of Oryzias latipes (medaka) embryos to 0.1-1 mg/L of homogeneously dispersed AgNPs for 14 days. During this period, developmental endpoints, including lethality, heart rate, and hatching rate, were evaluated by microscopy for different stages of medaka embryonic(More)
