Effects of Acute Exposure to Polystyrene Nanoplastics on the Channel Catfish Larvae: Insights From Energy Metabolism and Transcriptomic Analysis

Microplastics (nanoplastics) pollution has been a major ecological issue threatening global aquatic ecosystems. However, knowledge of the adverse effects of nanoplastics and the effects on freshwater

Transcriptional response of short-term nanoplastic exposure in Monodonta labio.

Biochemical and physiological responses of the water flea Moina macrocopa to microplastics: a multigenerational study

Background Numerous studies have measured the harmful effects of microplastics (MPs) and nanoplastics (NPs) (e.g., ingestion, temporal bioconcentration, acute and chronic responses, and the trophic

A new perspective on the nanoplastics disrupting the reproduction of an endangered fern in artificial freshwater.

Exposure to polystyrene nanoplastics caused a series of disruption in the early development stages from the stage of imbibition onward, and are likely to pose an eco-physiological risk on the reproductive success of endangered ferns.



Nanoplastic Affects Growth of S. obliquus and Reproduction of D. magna

Results are the first to show that direct life history shifts in algae and Daphnia populations may occur as a result of exposure to nanoplastic.

Polystyrene nanoplastics inhibit reproduction and induce abnormal embryonic development in the freshwater crustacean Daphnia galeata

We assayed the toxicity of polystyrene nanoparticles (PS-NP, 52 nm) to Daphnia galeata. Survival and reproduction were significantly decreased in individuals exposed to 5 mg/L of PS-NP for 5 days,

Ingestion of Nanoplastics and Microplastics by Pacific Oyster Larvae.

Micro- and nanoplastics were readily ingested by oyster larvae, and exposure to plastic concentrations exceeding those observed in the marine environment resulted in no measurable effects on the development or feeding capacity of the larvae over the duration of the study.

Microplastic Size-Dependent Toxicity, Oxidative Stress Induction, and p-JNK and p-p38 Activation in the Monogonont Rotifer (Brachionus koreanus).

In vitro tests revealed that antioxidant-related enzymes and MAPK signaling pathways were significantly activated in response to microplastic exposure in a size-dependent manner, suggesting that 6-μm microbeads are more effectively egested from B. koreanus than 0.05- or 0.5- μm microBeads.

Exposure to Cerium Dioxide Nanoparticles Differently Affect Swimming Performance and Survival in Two Daphnid Species

These interspecific toxic effects of CeO2 NPs are explained by morphological variations such as the presence of reliefs on the cuticle and a longer distal spine in D. similis acting as traps for the CeO 2 aggregates.
