Mechanisms and biological impacts of graphene and multi-walled carbon nanotubes on Drosophila melanogaster: Oxidative stress, genotoxic damage, phenotypic variations, locomotor behavior, parasitoid resistance, and cellular immune response
(Journal Of Applied Toxicology, 2021)
The use of graphene and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) has now become rather common in medical applications as well as several other areas thanks to their useful physicochemical properties. While in vitro testing ...
A comprehensive in vivo study using drosophila melanogaster: new insights into mechanisms and biological effects of permethrin nanopesticides
(The 6th ed. of the International Conference Nanotech France 2021, 2021)
A review on nanotoxicity and nanogenotoxicity of different shapes of nanomaterials
(Journal of applied Toxicology, 2021)
Nanomaterials (NMs) generally display fascinating physical and chemical properties that are not always present in bulk materials; therefore, any modification to their size, shape, or coating tends to cause significant ...
Exposure to boron trioxide nanoparticles and ions cause oxidative stress, DNA damage, and phenotypic alterations in Drosophila melanogaster as an in vivo model
(Journal of Applied Toxicology, 2022)
Boron trioxide nanoparticles (B2O3 NPs) have recently been widely used in a range of applications including electronic device technologies, acousto-optic apparatus fields, and as nanopowder for the production of special ...
Genotoxicity mechanism of food preservative propionic acid in the in vivo Drosophila model: gut damage, oxidative stress, cellular immune response and DNA damage
(Informa Healthcare, 2022)
Propionic acid is a short-chain fatty acid that is the main fermentation product of the enteric microbiome. It is found naturally and added to foods as a preservative and evaluated by health authorities as safe for use in ...
The potential use of drosophila as an in vivo model organism for COVID-19-related research: a review
(Turkish Journal of Biology, 2021)
The world urgently needs effective antiviral approaches against emerging viruses, as shown by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, which has become an exponentially growing health crisis. Scientists from ...
Interactions of ingested polystyrene microplastics with heavy metals (cadmium or silver) as environmental pollutants: a comprehensive in vivo study using drosophila melanogaster
Living organisms are now constantly exposed to microplastics and nanoplastics (MNPLs), and besides their toxic potential, they can also act as carriers of various hazardous elements such as heavy metals. Therefore, this ...
Toxicity mechanisms of nanoparticles in the male reproductive system
(Drug Metabolism Reviews, 2021)
The field of nanotechnology has allowed for increasing nanoparticle (NP) exposure to the male reproductive system. Certain NPs have been reported to have adverse consequences on male germ and somatic cells. Germ cells are ...
An in vivo study of nanorod, nanosphere, and nanowire forms of titanium dioxide using Drosophila melanogaster: toxicity, cellular uptake, oxidative stress, and DNA damage
(Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A, 2020)
The biological impact of nanomaterials (NMs) is determined by several factors such as size and shape, which need to be taken into consideration in any type of analysis. While investigators often prefer to conduct in vitro ...
Adverse biological effects of ingested polystyrene microplastics using Drosophila melanogaster as a model in vivo organism
(Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A: Current Issues, 2021)
The abundant presence and extensive use of polystyrene microplastics (PSMPs) has recently become a serious environmental concern, as impact of exposure to these substances on human health remains unknown. While in vitro ...
