Imazalil (IMA) is a fungicide that is used extensively in fruit plantations and post-harvest treatments. IMA is suspected to produce craniofacial malformations in vertebrates and scarce data are available about its genotoxicity. Therefore, toxicity tests on embryogenesis of zebrafish (Danio rerio) and genotoxicity biomonitoring assays on human lymphocytes were performed to assess the effects of IMA. For this aim, zebrafish embryos were continually exposed, from 0.5 to 144 h post-fertilization… Expand
Cytogenetic and genotoxic assessment in Allium cepa exposed to imazalil fungicide
TLDR
IMZ showed cytotoxic effect by statistically decreasing root growth and mitotic index (MI) and also genotoxic effects by statistically increasing chromosomal aberrations (CAs) and DNA damage compared to the negative control group. Expand
Anti-genotoxic role of eicosapentaenoic acid against imazalil-induced DNA damage in vitro
TLDR
The anti-genotoxic effect of EPA against the genotoxic damage induced by IMA on cultured human lymphocytes using chromosomal aberration and micronucleus tests as cytogenetic endpoints was investigated, suggesting a genoprotective role of EPA. Expand
An antidote for imazalil-induced genotoxicity in vitro: the lichen, Dermatocarpon intestiniforme (Körber) Hasse.
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that this plant extract per se does not have a genotoxic potential, but can alleviate the genotoxicity of IMA on cultured human lymphocytes, suggesting a genoprotective role of DIE. Expand
Role of Peltigera rufescens (Weis) Humb. (a lichen) on imazalil-induced genotoxicity: analysis of micronucleus and chromosome aberrations in vitro
TLDR
Results of the present study indicate that this plant extract per se do not have genotoxic potential but can minimize the genotoxicity of IMA on human lymphocytes in vitro, and may have an important application for the protection of human lymphocyte from the genetic damage and side effects induced by agricultural and medical chemicals hazardous in people.

Ecotoxicological evaluation of imazalil transformation products on Eisenia Andrei
TLDR
Investigations on the relative toxicity of IMZ transformation products are relevant for future discussions regarding the environmental treatment, control and destination of this compound and its derivatives. Expand
Sub-lethal effects of the pesticide imazalil on the earthworm Eisenia andrei: reproduction, cytotoxicity, and oxidative stress
TLDR
This study allows for the conclusion that imazalil does not cause immediate earthworm death after exposure, however, due to several complementary factors, this compound may compromise earthworm health and lead to death, as E. andrei individuals did not avoid the contaminated soil, thus contributing to longer exposure periods and consequent cumulative damage to their systems. Expand
The fungicide imazalil induces developmental abnormalities and alters locomotor activity during early developmental stages in zebrafish.
TLDR
It is shown that exposure to IMZ has the potential to induce developmental toxicity and locomotor behavior abnormalities during zebrafish development, and it is suggested that IMZ could act as a neuroendocrine disruptor by decreasing the expression of neurotoxicity-related genes during early developmental stages of zebra fish.

in vitro genotoxicity ( Ach . ) extract as a genoprotective agent on imazalil-induced Bryoria capillaris Role of aqueous
In recent years, a number of studies have suggested that lichens might be the easily accessible sources of natural drugs that could be used as a possible food supplement. Extensive research is beingExpand
Role of aqueous Bryoria capillaris (Ach.) extract as a genoprotective agent on imazalil-induced genotoxicity in vitro
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that this plant extract per se do not have genotoxic potential, but can modulate the genotoxicity of IMA on peripheral human lymphocytes in vitro, and may have an important application in the protection of cultured human lymphocyte from the genetic damage and side effects induced by agricultural and medical chemicals that are hazardous to people.

TLDR
Toxicity tests on sperm viability, fertilization and embryogenesis of the solitary ascidian Phallusia mammillata were performed to evaluate the effects of two azole derivatives, Imazalil and Triadimefon, and Ascidians proved to be good models to study the toxic effects of pesticides. Expand

TLDR
Testing the effects of IMA on the development of the solitary ascidian Ciona intestinalis by treating two-cell stage embryos showed that this fungicide could affect the differentiation of the anterior nervous system, particularly of the sensory vesicle neurons. Expand
Antifungal triazoles induce malformations in vitro.
TLDR
Flusilazole and fluconazole showed similar teratogenic effects (abnormalities at the branchial apparatus level and cell death at the level of the branchials mesenchyme) at concentration levels of 6.25 microM and higher for flusilAZole and of 125 microMand higher for flu Conazole, suggesting no ter atogenic activity for the triazole group.

TLDR
The acute, subacute and chronic toxicity studies in rats and dogs showed that imazalil wa a well tolerated substance and ocular and dermal irritation were not seen at therapeutic doses. Expand

TLDR
The versatility and simplicity of the CBMN assay together with new developments in automation should enable its successful application in monitoring exposed populations as well as identifying mutagen-sensitive individuals within a population. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that atrazine and imazalil inhibit regression of the right gonad in female chicks, although it is not clear whether the remainingright gonad has aromatase activity. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that fipronil impairs the development of spinal locomotor pathways in fish by inhibiting a structurally related glycine receptor subtype, which represents an unanticipated and potentially novel mechanism for fipronsil toxicity in vertebrates. Expand
