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

Influence of water hardness on cadmium toxicity to Salmo gairdneri rich.
Acute toxicity of cadmium to Salmo gairdneri is increased by a reduction in water hardness. The role of the chemical species of the metal in the intoxication processes in waters of different levelsExpand

Axial-skeletal defects caused by Carbaryl in Xenopus laevis embryos.
Embryotoxic effects of Carbaryl (CB), a widely used carbamate insecticide, was evaluated by modified Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay-Xenopus (FETAX), coupled with a histopathological screening of theExpand

Tire debris organic extract affects Xenopus development.
Tire debris (TD) and its organic components were identified as a main source of PM10 atmospheric and water pollution. Because few data are available on the embryotoxic effects of TD organicExpand

Paraquat embryotoxicity in the Xenopus laevis cleavage phase.
The high Paraquat (PQ, 1-1'-dimethyl-4,4'bipyridylium dichloride) embryotoxicity in Xenopus laevis has been shown to be due to its rapid reduction and instantaneous re-oxidation which produces aExpand

DDT contamination in Lake Maggiore (N. Italy) and effects on zebra mussel spawning.
Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) is commonly used as contaminant bioindicator in Europe and North America. We used the zebra mussel to follow DDT pollution trends from 1996 to 1997 in PallanzaExpand

Dose-dependence of doxorubicin effect on actin assembly in vitro.
Doxorubicin (Adriamycin), one of the most potent antibiotics used in tumor chemotherapy, shows many undesirable side effects. We studied the effect of different drug concentrations on theExpand

Is meltwater from Alpine glaciers a secondary DDT source for lakes?
A sharp increase in 2005 of pp'DDT and its metabolites was observed in mussels and fish from lakes Como and Iseo, the main glacier-fed southern Alpine lakes. DDTs in zebra mussels (DreissenaExpand

DDT in zebra mussels from Lake Maggiore (N. Italy): level of contamination and endocrine disruptions.
The DDT contamination of Lake Maggiore (Northern Italy) has been monitored since a serious pollution event occurred in 1996. To assess the environmental risk associated with this contamination,Expand

Paraquat induces actin assembly in depolymerizing conditions
The molecular mechanism (or mechanisms) at the basis of paraquat (PQ) (a widely used herbicide) toxicity is far from being fully understood. Until now, two main points of view have emerged: 1)Expand
