Glyphosate is a broad spectrum herbicide used aggressively in agricultural practices as well as home garden care. Although labeled "safe" by the chemical industry, doses tested by industry do not mimic chronic exposures to sublethal doses that organisms in the environment are exposed to over long periods of time. Given the widespread uses of and exposure to glyphosate, studies on developmental toxicity are needed. Here we utilize the zebrafish vertebrate model system to study early effects of… Expand
Glyphosate induces toxicity and modulates calcium and NO signaling in zebrafish embryos.
TLDR
The results indicate that glyphosate induces significant toxicity including cardiotoxicity in zebrafish embryos in a time and concentration-dependent manner, which may be due to changes in calcium and NO signaling. Expand
How glyphosate and its associated acidity affect early development in zebrafish (Danio rerio)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that lethal impacts in zebrafish embryos can be attributed mainly to low pH, but the results could also show a pH-independent effect of glyphosate on the development of zebra fish embryos on a sublethal level. Expand
Dose-dependent effects of a glyphosate commercial formulation - Roundup® UltraMax - on the early zebrafish embryogenesis.
TLDR
Investigating the lethal and sub-lethal developmental effects, neurotoxic potential and oxidative stress responses of zebrafish embryos to Roundup® Ultramax (RU) exposure suggests a dose-dependent toxicological effect of this formulation at concentrations that are not routinely detected in the environment. Expand
Biological impacts of glyphosate on morphology, embryo biomechanics and larval behavior in zebrafish (Danio rerio).
TLDR
Larval zebrafish was employed as an animal model to evaluate the effect of different concentrations of glyphosate on early development via morphological, biomechanics, behavioral and physiological analyses, and revealed that embryonic exposure to glyphosate significantly elevated locomotor activities, which is probably attributed to motoneuronal damage. Expand
Effects of low-concentration glyphosate and aminomethyl phosphonic acid on zebrafish embryo development.
TLDR
It was demonstrated that at typical environmental residual concentrations of GLY and AMPA had similar developmental toxicity in zebrafish embryos. Expand
A glyphosate micro-emulsion formulation displays teratogenicity in Xenopus laevis.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in broad-spectrum herbicide formulations used in agriculture, domestic area and aquatic weed control worldwide. Its market is growing steadily concurrently withExpand
Behavioural toxicity of environmental relevant concentrations of a glyphosate commercial formulation - RoundUp® UltraMax - During zebrafish embryogenesis.
TLDR
A possible neurotoxic effect of this glyphosate-based formulation of RoundUp® UltraMax on zebrafish embryos is indicated, which could impose a risk for wildlife sensitive species that should not be neglected. Expand
Exposure to Oxadiazon-Butachlor causes cardiac toxicity in zebrafish embryos.
TLDR
It is shown that OB exposure causes cardiotoxicity in zebrafish embryos and may be potentially toxic to other aquatic life and even humans. Expand
Changes in microtubule stability in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos after glyphosate exposure
TLDR
Results indicate that high concentrations of glyphosate were associated with reduced levels of acetylated α-tubulin and altered microtubule stability, which may explain some of the neurotoxic and cardiotoxic effects that have been attributed to this herbicide. Expand
Developmental and epigenetic effects of Roundup and glyphosate exposure on Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Roundup and its active ingredient glyphosate can induce developmental, reproductive, and epigenetic effects in fish; suggesting that ecological species, mainly fish, could be at risk for endocrine disruption in glyphosate and Roundup-contaminated water bodies. Expand

Glyphosate induces neurotoxicity in zebrafish.
TLDR
It is concluded that glyphosate and the Roundup(®) formulation is developmentally toxic to the forebrain and midbrain but does not affect the hindbrain after 24 h exposure. Expand
Glyphosate-based herbicides produce teratogenic effects on vertebrates by impairing retinoic acid signaling.
TLDR
The phenotypes produced by GBH are mainly a consequence of the increase of endogenous retinoid activity, consistent with the decrease of Sonic hedgehog signaling from the embryonic dorsal midline, with the inhibition of otx2 expression and with the disruption of cephalic neural crest development. Expand
Effects of glyphosate and its formulation, roundup, on reproduction in zebrafish (Danio rerio).
TLDR
The results demonstrate that these chemicals cause reproductive toxicity in zebrafish, although only at high concentrations unlikely to occur in the environment, and likely mechanisms of toxicity include disruption of the steroidogenic biosynthesis pathway and oxidative stress. Expand
Changes in Ultrastructure and Expression of Steroidogenic Factor-1 in Ovaries of Zebrafish Danio rerio Exposed to Glyphosate
TLDR
After glyphosate exposure, immunohistochemistry and immunoblotting revealed greater expression ofSF-1 in the oocytes, which suggests a relationship between oocyte growth and SF-1 expression, and raises a potential concern for fish reproduction. Expand
Evaluation of developmental toxicity studies of glyphosate with attention to cardiovascular development
TLDR
Assessment of the entire body of the developmental toxicity data reviewed fails to support a potential risk for increased cardiovascular defects as a result of glyphosate exposure during pregnancy. Expand
Effect of glyphosate on the sperm quality of zebrafish Danio rerio.
TLDR
The results showed that glyphosate can induce harmful effects on reproductive parameters in D. rerio and that this change would reduce the fertility rate of these animals. Expand
Effect of glyphosate-based herbicide on early life stages of Java medaka (Oryzias javanicus): a potential tropical test fish.
TLDR
Generally, survival and hatching percentage decreased as glyphosate concentration increased, and risk factor also increased with the increased in glyphosate concentrations. Expand
Toxicity of glyphosate herbicide on Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) juvenile
TLDR
Glyphosate is highly toxic to Nile tilapias, which are more susceptible to this herbicide; therefore their use near fish farm or in area close to aquatic environment should be discouraged. Expand
Zebrafish as a novel experimental model for developmental toxicology
TLDR
It is found that TCDD induces apoptosis in dorsal midbrain with a concomitant decrease in local blood flow, using developing zebrafish, which could help to clarify the mechanism of congenital anomaly, which arises from genetic mutation. Expand
Toxicity of glyphosate-based pesticides to four North American frog species.
TLDR
Data suggest that surfactant composition must be considered in the evaluation of toxicity of glyphosate-based herbicides, because thyroid hormone receptor beta mRNA transcript levels were elevated by exposure to formulations containing glyphosate and POEA. Expand
