Arsenic and atrazine are common environmental contaminants probably due to their extensive use as pesticides on agricultural farmlands. In this study, zebrafish embryos were exposed to 0.8mM arsenic, 0.1mM atrazine or mixture of both for 96h, and various indices which are indicative of teratogenicity (egg coagulation, growth retardation, edema formation, hatching success, scoliosis), genotoxicity (DNA tail moments) and oxidative stress (lipid peroxidation and reduced glutathione (GSH) levels… CONTINUE READING
