Arsenite induces neurotoxic effects on AFD neurons via oxidative stress in Caenorhabditis elegans.

Abstract

Arsenic permeates our environment. As a result, humans are continually exposed to it. This study investigates the possible roles of oxidative stress in arsenite (As(III))-induced neurotoxicity in Caenorhabditis elegans. Exposure to As(III), at the concentrations examined, caused a decrease in locomotor behaviors (frequencies of body bends, head thrashes… (More)
