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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Drosophila as a model for assessing nanopesticide toxicity
One of the fastest-moving fields in today’s world of applied science, nanotechnology allows the control and design of matter on an extremely small scale, so it has now become an integral part of various industries and ...
In vivo evaluation of the toxic and genotoxic effects of exposure to cobalt nanoparticles using Drosophila melanogaster
(Environmental Science Nano, 2020)
Nanomaterials in general and cobalt nanoparticles (CoNPs) in particular are of great interest not only because of their multiple applications and environmental impact, but also for their potential toxicity and safety issues. ...
