Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a widely used biological model to investigate different chemicals since it has certain similarities with human biology. Present study investigated the impact of monosodium glutamate (MSG); an excessively used food additive all over the world, on the embryonic development of zebrafish. Acute toxicity experiments were performed for a 4day period using zebrafish eggs. Ten different test concentrations of monosodium glutamate (MSG) of 10, 30, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300…

Effects of monosodium glutamate on heart beat and the embryonic development of zebrafish

The results demonstrate that zebra fish embryo is a good model for the detection of toxic potential of chemical substances and suggest the need to reconsider the safety of MSG and elucidate its mechanism of adverse reaction in further studies.

Chronic toxicity of monosodium glutamate on the reproductive system and some internal organs of zebrafish (Danio rerio)

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is commonly used to enhance the tastes food . It is composed of sodium salt and amino acids . Although MSG is considered safe at the consumption level, its adverse effects

The Teratogenic Effects of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) on the Development of Chick Embryos

Objective: The present study was conducted to evaluate the toxicity and teratogenic effects of MSG in chick embryo development. Methods: Various concentrations of MSG solution, 1 mg, 1.5 mg, 2.5 mg

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is used in the food industry as a flavor enhancer added to thousands of food.Several studies have proven the damage caused by MSG on laboratory animals. Therefore, this

L-Glutamic acid monosodium salt reduces the harmful effect of lithium on the development of Xenopus laevis embryos

Examination of the developmental effects of exposure to flavor enhancer MSG and LiCI medicament on Xenopus embryos using the frog embryo teratogenesis assay of Xenopus test found MSG attenuated harmful effects of Li in MSG+Li combined treatments and Li-involving treatments caused dramatic deleterious effects.

The possible ameliorative effect of Grape Seed Extract against of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) on retina of chick embryo during the incubation period (to Manifest Scientific Miracles in Quran)

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is used in the food industry as a flavor enhancer added to thousands of food, This study aims investigate the Effect of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) on the retina of chick

Microscopic study of potential toxic effects of monosodium glutamate on liver of chicken embryos aged 16 days

It was concluded that MSG had severe toxic effects on liver structure if it was given in pre-conception period as this period is considered critical for liver growth (organogenesis).

Effect of Grape Seed Extract in Minimizing the Harmful Effects of Monosodium Glutamate on the Chicken Embryonic Retina to Show Scientific Miracles In the Holy Quran

The results showed that the treatment of embryos with MSG dose caused many of the abnormalities at the level of tissue formation of the retina, and after thereatment of the fetus with GSE was noted to reduce the damage to the tissue ofThe retina.

Investigating the effects of monosodium glutamate usingzebrafish as an animal model

This study strongly supports the harmful effect of MSG during early period of development when consumed in higher concentration, and suggests exercising caution in the consumption of MSG, especially in children.

The development of Galleria mellonella as a model to test the toxicity of food additives

Three proteomic studies were conducted to determine the proteomic response to potassium nitrate, caffeine and monosodium glutamate and all three studies revealed findings that were comparable to those of vertebrates.

Teratogenicity and brain aromatase-induction of monosodium glutamate in estrogen-responsive mosaic transgenic zebra fish Danio rerio

The current results demonstrate that MSG or MSG-containing foods may harm the human offspring if they take it in a high dose.

Effects of triclosan on zebrafish early-life stages and adults

TCS has deleterious effects on zebrafish adults and during early stages, (including embryotoxicity, hatching delay and alterations of biomarkers levels), according to a better understanding of the toxicity and mode of action of TCS.

Refinement of the fish embryo toxicity test (FET) with zebrafish (Danio rerio) : Is it a real replacement of the acute fish toxicity test?

A detailed literature research and a thorough re-evaluation of FET and acute fish test data has been conducted, and a flow-through protocol was developed to investigate if the static procedure of the FET may be the reason for outliers, which seems to be a sufficient testing procedure and should definitely be used in further chemical assessment.

Cellular and molecular basis of cadmium‐induced deformities in zebrafish embryos

Reduced myotome formation is demonstrated for the first time, in cadmium‐induced spinal deformity in zebrafish embryos, supporting the hypothesis that fish embryonic malformations induced by Cadmium might be mediated through ectopic expression of developmental regulatory genes.

Embryo-Larval Toxicity Tests with the African Catfish (Clarias gariepinus): Comparative Sensitivity of Endpoints

Embryo-larval toxicity tests with the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) were performed to assess the comparative sensitivity of different endpoints, and growth > abnormality > larval survival > embryo survival > hatching can be summarized as follows.

Effect of Monosodium Glutamate on Chick Embryo Development

It was concluded that a single low dose of monosodium glutamate might affect chick embryonic development causing growth retardation, congenital malformations, and liver degeneration.

The long term effects on histology of liver following MSG injection in neonates showed moderate and patchy hepatocellular damage.

Monosodium glutamate-induced oxidative damage and genotoxicity in the rat: modulatory role of vitamin C, vitamin E and quercetin

The results indicate that dietary antioxidants have protective potential against oxidative stress induced by MSG and, in addition, suggest that active oxygen species may play an important role in its genotoxicity.

Low dose oral administration of monosodium glutamate in male albino rats may be nephroprotective

Treating rats with monosodium glutamate at a low concentration could be nephroprotective, but with possible significant dehydration, and the health implications of the results are highlighted in the discussion.
