IMPACT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANTS ON THE REPRODUCTION OF NON-TARGET INSECT DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER

Drosophila is used as a model organism for testing the hazards of these environmental contaminants and the antagonistic impacts of natural introduction on the richness and related conceptive results are inspected.

Effects of octopamine on reproduction, juvenile hormone metabolism, dopamine, and 20-hydroxyecdysone contents in Drosophila.

OA feeding of the flies was found to cause a considerable decrease in JH degradation in females, but not males, of D. virilis and to decrease to a large extent the number of vitellogenic and mature oocytes in D.virilis females.

Risk assessment of a formamidine pesticide, Amitraz, focusing on thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss.

The present results emerged an endocrine interaction between amitraz based formulation and TH homeostasis, but still needs further detail studies to a better understanding of TH mechanism in teleosts in response to environmental compounds.
