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 ...
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 ...
Novel insights into acute/chronic genotoxic impact of exposure to tungsten oxide nanoparticles on Drosophila melanogaster
(Journal of Nanoparticle Research, 2022)
Tungsten oxide nanoparticles (WO3 NPs) have now been employed by various products including electronics, smart screens, gas-biosensors, water purifiers, disinfectants, and biomedical applications. Despite this wide-ranging ...
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 ...
A systematic in vivo study of copper hydroxide nanopesticides using Drosophila melanogaster: Cellular uptake and biological impacts
(11th Congress of Toxicology in Developing Countries (CTDC11), 2021)
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 ...
Potential genotoxic and biological effects of 1,4 dioxane on different model organisms
(Current Opinion in Environmental Science & Health, 2023)
A suspected human carcinogen, the compound 1,4-dioxane (DXN) has been commonly employed as a solvent in the production of various cleaning applications, cosmetics, dyes, varnishes, waxes, and detergents. Leaked from ...
