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

Nano-sized CuO, TiO2 and ZnO affect Xenopus laevis development
Abstract The teratogenic potential of commercially available copper oxide (CuO), titanium dioxide (TiO2) and zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles (NPs) was evaluated using the standardized FETAX test.Expand

Evidence and uptake routes for Zinc oxide nanoparticles through the gastrointestinal barrier in Xenopus laevis
Abstract The developmental toxicity of nanostructured materials, as well as their impact on the biological barriers, represents a crucial aspect to be assessed in a nanosafety policy framework.Expand

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

Zebra mussels in Italy: where do they come from?
The zebra mussel Dreissena polymorpha is widely present in Italy, but Italian populations of this bivalve have never been genetically characterized. The mitochondrial Cytochrome Oxidase subunit IExpand

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

Does carbon nanopowder threaten amphibian development
Abstract Lethal and teratogenic potentials of carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) in their amorphous form were investigated by the standardized Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay-Xenopus (FETAX), a 96-h inExpand

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
