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 ...
Drosophila as a robust model system for assessing autophagy: a review
Autophagy is the process through which a body breaks down and recycles its own cellular components, primarily inside lysosomes. It is a cellular response to starvation and stress, which plays decisive roles in various ...
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 ...
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 ...
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)
Drosophila melanogaster as a dynamic in vivo model organism reveals the hidden effects of interactions between microplastic/nanoplastic and heavy metals
(Journal of Applied Toxicology, 2022)
Plastic waste in different environments has been constantly transforming into microplastic/nanoplastic (MNPLs). As they may coexist with other contaminants, they may behave as vectors that transport various toxic trace ...
In vivo evaluation of the neurogenotoxic effects of exposure to validamycin A in neuroblasts of drosophila melanogaster larval brain
(Journal of Applied Toxicology, 2023)
Agriculture commonly utilizes crop protection products to tackle infestations from fungi, parasites, insects, and weeds. Validamycin A, an inhibitor of trehalase, possesses antibiotic and antifungal attributes. Epidemiological ...
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 ...
Independent effects on cellular and humoral immune responses underlie genotype-by- genotype interactions between Drosophila and parasitoids
(PLoS Pathogens, 2019)
It is common to find abundant genetic variation in host resistance and parasite infectivity within populations, with the outcome of infection frequently depending on genotype-specific interactions. Underlying these effects ...
