Imposex in Hexaplex trunculus (Gastropoda: Muricidae): first results from biomonitoring of tributyltin contamination in the Mediterranean
TLDR
A reported shift in the size frequency distribution of H. trunculus in contaminated sites, towards bigger snails, may suggest reduced reproductive potential, and Imposex indices are used to biomonitor coastal contamination by TBT for the first time in the Mediterranean.
Reproduction and imposex in the edible snail Adelomelon ancilla from northern Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
The edible volutid snail Adelomelon ancilla occurs on the Argentine coast and may have the capacity to serve as source of support for local fisheries, but knowledge of its reproduction is lacking, and reproduction is compared with other fishable volutids from the Argentine shelf.
Reproductive disrupting effect of organotin compound in the ark shell, scapharca broughtonii (Bivalvia: Arcidae)
TLDR
The results show that organotin compounds caused reproductive disruption in Scapharca broughtonii.
Impact of Tributyltin and Triphenyltin on Ivory Shell (Babylonia japonica) Populations
TLDR
These findings strongly suggest that reproductive failure in adult females accompanied by imposex, possibly induced by TBT and TPhT from antifouling paints, may have caused the marked decline of B. japonica populations in Japan.
Drosophila melanogaster: A Model Organism to Understand Biological Activities of Nanoparticles
TLDR
Drosophila melanogaster, possessing completely the experimental features like inclination of investigational manipulation proportional to vertebrate models, significant gene homology with developed and complex organisms, and simplicity of gaining mutant phenotypes, seems to be an ideal model organism for the study of nanoparticles activities in cells and nanotoxicological trials.
Model Organisms to Study Biological Activities and Toxicity of Nanoparticles
TLDR
The history of nanoscience is presented and an overview of applications of nanoparticles in biology and medicine are discussed, ranging from bioseparations, biosensing, molecular imaging, drug delivery, and hyperthermic treatment.

First Record of Imposex in Euthria cornea (Neogastropoda: Buccinidae) Collected from the Complex Lagoon-Channel of Bizerta
TLDR
This study reports, for the first time, the occurrence of imposex in Euthria cornea (Linnaeus, 1758) collected from the complex lagoon-channel of Bizerta.
First Record of Imposex in Euthria cornea (Neogastropoda: Buccinidae) Collected from the Complex Lagoon-Channel of Bizerta
TLDR
The occurrence of imposex in Euthria cornea (Linnaeus, 1758) collected from the complex lagoon-channel of Bizerta is reported, for the first time, and four stages (VDS1a, VDS2a,VDS3a and VDS4) were recognised in this gastropod.

The decline of the gastropod Nucella lapillus around south-west England: evidence for the effect of tributyltin from antifouling paints
TLDR
The incidence of ‘imposex’, the induction of male sex characters in the female, is widespread, that all populations are affected to some degree and that the phenomenon is most prevalent along the south (Channel) coast.
The effects of tributyltin (TBT) accumulation on adult dog-whelks, Nucella lapillus : long-term field and laboratory experiments
TLDR
Populations of the gastropod, Nucella lapillus (L.), normally one of the commonest of rocky-shore macroinvertebrates, have recently suffered from declining numbers and that imposex was almost certainly caused by tributyltin (TBT) compounds leached from ships' antifouling paints.
Sex Change in the Female Dog-Whelk, Nucella Lapillus , Induced by Tributyltin from Antifouling Paints
TLDR
Both field and laboratory observations have provided conclusive evidence that imposex in N. lapillus is initiated by tributyltin (TBT), used as a biocide in antifouling paints, at concentrations in water of less than 1 ng Sn/1.
The use of the dog-whelk, Nucella lapillus , as an indicator of tributyltin (TBT) contamination
TLDR
The incidence and intensity of imposex have since increased markedly in the same populations and that the phenomenon is widespread around south-west England is demonstrated.
A Comparison of the Effectiveness of Tri-N-Butyltin Chloride and Five other Organotin Compounds in Promoting the Development of Imposex in the Dog-Whelk, Nucella Lapillus
TLDR
Since development is direct and there is no planktonic stage, N. lapillus has a very limited capacity for dispersion: thus the sterilization of females heralds the almost certain decline of so affected populations.
Reproductive Failure in Populations of the Dog-Whelk, Nucella Lapillus , Caused by Imposex Induced by Tributyltin from Antifouling Paints
TLDR
It would appear that the accumulation of aborted capsules within the pallial oviduct eventually causes the premature death of the female and is evident from the high incidence of females containing aborted capsules in declining populations close to sources of tributyltin contamination.
