Comparative embryotoxicity and proteotoxicity of three carrier solvents to zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos.
TLDR
Based on the study, the chemicals tested here may be used as carrier solvents in the zebrafish embryo assay at levels below 1.5%, however, the solvent levels should be below 0.1%, 0.01%, and 1% v/v for acetone, DMSO, and ethanol, respectively. Expand
Interactions between effects of environmental chemicals and natural stressors: a review.
TLDR
An evaluation of stressors covering heat, cold, desiccation, oxygen depletion, pathogens and immunomodulatory factors combined with a variety of environmental pollutants revealed that synergistic interactions between the effects of various natural stressors and toxicants are not uncommon phenomena. Expand
Toxic effects of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac. Part II: cytological effects in liver, kidney, gills and intestine of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
TLDR
Cytopathology was investigated in the liver, kidney, gills and gut of rainbow trout exposed to five different concentrations of the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac under laboratory conditions, with the lowest observed effect concentration (LOEC) for cytological alterations in liver, liver and gills. Expand
Drought acclimation confers cold tolerance in the soil collembolan Folsomia candida.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the stresses exerted by desiccation and cold at the cellular level have sufficient similarities to induce overlapping adaptations and are likely to contribute to the observed cross-tolerance. Expand
Developmental toxicity and stress protein responses in zebrafish embryos after exposure to diclofenac and its solvent, DMSO.
TLDR
It is unlikely that this drug would pose a hazard to early-life stages of zebrafish due to the fact that the concentrations of diclofenac used in the present study is up to 2000-fold higher than the concentrations detected in the environment. Expand
Trehalose and anhydrobiosis in tardigrades – evidence for divergence in responses to dehydration
TLDR
The accumulation of trehalose is demonstrated in developing tardigrade embryos, which have been shown to have a high level of desiccation tolerance, and, for the first time, is shown in species of the order Parachela. Expand
Combined effects of temperature and cadmium on developmental parameters and biomarker responses in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos
TLDR
It is confirmed that temperature effectively confounds cadmium toxicity and needs to be considered for the accurate prediction and assessment of cad mium-induced toxicity in fish. Expand
Assessing contamination levels of Laguna Lake sediments (Philippines) using a contact assay with zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos.
TLDR
The present study points out that the sediment contact assay with zebrafish embryos offers a practicable and highly sensitive bioassay for the general assessment of sediment toxicity. Expand
Behavioural and developmental toxicity of chlorpyrifos and nickel chloride to zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos and larvae.
TLDR
Compared to developmental or survival parameters, behaviour was the most sensitive endpoint for CHP exposure in this study; therefore it is recommended that this parameter be recommended to complement already established endpoints. Expand
B-type esterases in the snail Xeropicta derbentina: an enzymological analysis to evaluate their use as biomarkers of pesticide exposure.
TLDR
The results suggest that B-type esterases in X. derbentina are suitable biomarkers of pesticide exposure and that this snail could be used as sentinel species in field monitoring of Mediterranean climate regions. Expand
