Glyphosate based herbicides (GBH) like Roundup(®) are used extensively in agriculture as well as in urban and rural settings as a broad spectrum herbicide. Its mechanism of action was thought to be specific only to plants and thus considered safe and non-toxic. However, mounting evidence suggests that GBHs may not be as safe as once thought as initial studies in frogs suggest that GBHs may be teratogenic. Here we utilize the zebrafish vertebrate model system to study early effects of glyphosate… Expand
Glyphosate induces cardiovascular toxicity in Danio rerio.
TLDR
Glyphosate is developmentally toxic to the zebrafish heart and alterations in the Mef2/mef2ca staining patterns during early cardiac patterning stages are found. Expand
Glyphosate and Roundup® alter morphology and behavior in zebrafish.
TLDR
It is suggested that there are small differences between the effects induced by glyphosate and Roundup®, altering morphological and behavioral parameters in zebrafish, suggesting common mechanisms of toxicity and cellular response. 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
lyphosate induces cardiovascular toxicity in Danio rerio icole
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 notExpand
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
Glyphosate targets fish monoaminergic systems leading to oxidative stress and anxiety.
TLDR
Current glyphosate concentrations commonly found in many aquatic ecosystems may have detrimental consequences on fish survival by decreasing exploration of the environment or altering social interactions, and these results are relevant not only for environmental risk assessment, but also for understanding the risk of chronic low-dose exposures on human health. 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
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.

Glyphosate Herbicide: Reproductive Outcomes and Multigenerational Effects
TLDR
This review provides an overview of the routes and levels of human exposure toGBHs, the potential estrogenic effects of glyphosate and GBHs in cell culture and animal models, their long-term effects on female fertility and mechanisms of action, and the consequences on health of successive generations. Expand
Low-concentration exposure to glyphosate-based herbicide modulates the complexes of the mitochondrial respiratory chain and induces mitochondrial hyperpolarization in the Danio rerio brain.
TLDR
Investigation of the neurotoxic effects of the GBH in the zebrafish Danio rerio revealed a decrease in cell viability, inhibited mitochondrial complex enzymatic activity, modulated gene expression related to mitochondrial complexes, induced an increase in RS production, promoted hyperpolarization of mitochondrial membrane, and induced behavioral impairments.

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
Teratogenesis by glyphosate based herbicides and other pesticides. Relationship with the retinoic acid pathway
A recent study using a commercial formulation of glyphosate based herbicides (GBH) showed that treatments with a 1 / 5000 dilution (430 !M of glyphosate) were sufficient to induce reproducibleExpand
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
Zebrafish as a model for developmental neurotoxicity testing.
TLDR
The results showed a strong correlation with mammalian data and suggest that zebrafish is a predictive animal model for neurotoxicity screening and is useful in determining whether a compound causes specific neurotoxicity or general developmental toxicity. Expand
Zebrafish as a neurotoxicological model.
TLDR
Zebrafish has emerged as a valuable and complementary vertebrate model and Behavioral and learning protocols have been developed for the organism so that early exposures can be assayed for effects upon adult fish. 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
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
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
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
