Abstract A major challenge in nanoecotoxicology is finding suitable methods to determine the uptake and localisation of nanoparticles on a whole-organism level. Some uptake methods have been associated with artefacts induced by sample preparation, including staining for electron microscopy. This study used light sheet microscopy (LSM) to define the uptake and localisation of fluorescently labelled nanoparticles in living organisms with minimal sample preparation. Zebrafish (Danio rerio) were… 

The biodistribution and immuno-responses of differently shaped non-modified gold particles in zebrafish embryos

The observed shape-dependent biodistribution patterns of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) might be beneficial for shape-specific targeting in nanomedicine and stress the importance of incorporating shape-features in nanosafety assessment.

Polystyrene nanoplastics accumulate in ZFL cell lysosomes and in zebrafish larvae after acute exposure, inducing a synergistic immune response in vitro without affecting larval survival in vivo

It is shown that, although PS-NPs can induce an immune response, the survival of zebrafish larvae challenged with a bacterial infection after an acute exposure to PS-NP is not decimated with respect to unexposed larvae.

Nanoparticles induce dermal and intestinal innate immune system responses in zebrafish embryos

This is the first in vivo evidence for waterborne NP exposure triggering alterations of immune system regulating genes in the skin and intestine of zebrafish embryos, and might be used for screening purposes in nanotoxicology or as building blocks for adverse outcome pathways.

Implementing the current knowledge of uptake and effects of nanoparticles in an adverse outcome pathway (AOP) framework

The evaluation of the current knowledge of cellular and organismal responses when exposed to NPs allows for the identification of key knowledge gaps and foresees research directions and the need to develop Adverse Outcome Pathways for NPs.

Nanoplastics impact the zebrafish (Danio rerio) transcriptome: Associated developmental and neurobehavioral consequences.



Impact of dietary gold nanoparticles in zebrafish at very low contamination pressure: The role of size, concentration and exposure time

Investigation of the impact of a daily ration of food containing gold nanoparticles in the zebrafish Danio rerio showed alteration of genome composition using a RAPD-PCR genotoxicity test as the number of hybridization sites of the RAPD probes was significantly modified after AuNP exposure.

Quantification of gold nanoparticle cell uptake under controlled biological conditions and adequate resolution.

The importance of studying NP-cell interactions under controlled experimental conditions and at adequate microscopic resolution in combination with stereology is emphasized, suggesting a predominant uptake via caveolin-medicated endocytois.

Toxicity of silver nanoparticles in zebrafish models.

The results suggest that silver nanoparticles induce a dose-dependent toxicity in embryos, which hinders normal development.

Impact of gold nanoparticles on zebrafish exposed to a spiked sediment

Gold accumulation in fish tissues demonstrated the lower bioavailability of AuNP compared to ionic Au, and underlined the higher toxic potential of the nanoparticle form.

Evidence of one-way flow bioaccumulation of gold nanoparticles across two trophic levels

This work reports a one-way flow bioaccumulation of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in aquatic organisms between two trophic levels. First, Dunaliella salina cells were exposed to citrate-capped AuNPs at

Silver nanoparticles: behaviour and effects in the aquatic environment.

Persistent adult zebrafish behavioral deficits results from acute embryonic exposure to gold nanoparticles.

Silver nanoparticles affect the neural development of zebrafish embryos

It is suggested that AgNPs could affect the neural development of zebrafish embryos, and the toxicity of AgNps may be partially attributed to the comparatively higher uptake in the head area.
