The use of non-targeted metabolomics to assess the toxicity of bifenthrin to juvenile Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha).

Aquat Toxicol 2020 May 23;224:105518. Epub 2020 May 23.

Department of Environmental Sciences, University of California Riverside, Riverside, CA, USA; Institute of Environmental Health, College of Environmental and Resource Sciences, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou 310058, China.

An increase in urban and agricultural application of pyrethroid insecticides in the San Francisco Bay Estuary and Sacramento San Joaquin Delta has raised concern for the populations of several salmonids, including Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha). Bifenthrin, a type I pyrethroid, is among the most frequently detected pyrethroids in the Bay-Delta watershed, with surface water concentrations often exceeding chronic toxicity thresholds for several invertebrate and fish species. To better understand the mechanisms of bifenthrin-induced neurotoxicity, juvenile Chinook salmon were exposed to concentrations of bifenthrin previously measured in the Delta. Read More

Effects of carbon nanotubes on the toxicities of copper, cadmium and zinc toward the freshwater microalgae Scenedesmus obliquus.

Aquat Toxicol 2020 May 15;224:105504. Epub 2020 May 15.

Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, University of Georgia, Griffin, GA 30223, United States.

Due to their unique structure and properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) released into the aquatic environment can potentially influence the behavior of other coexisting pollutants, thereby altering their toxicity to aquatic organisms. In this study, the toxicities of multi-walled CNTs and three heavy metals, copper (Cu), cadmium (Cd) and zinc (Zn) were determined individually. Following this, CNTs with low concentrations (1 and 5 mg/L) were co-exposed with Cu, Cd or Zn to the microalgae Scenedesmus obliquus, to investigate the effects and underlying mechanisms of CNTs on metal toxicity.

Conventional and nano-copper pesticides are equally toxic to the estuarine amphipod Leptocheirus plumulosus.

Aquat Toxicol 2020 Apr 27;224:105481. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, 93106, United States. Electronic address:

Modern nano-engineered pesticides have great promise for agriculture due to their extended, low dose release profiles that are intended to increase effectiveness but reduce environmental harm. Whether nanopesticides, including copper (Cu) formulations, cause reduced levels of toxicity to non-target aquatic organisms is unclear but important to assess. Predicting how aquatic species respond to incidental exposure to Cu-based nanopesticides is challenging because of the expected very low concentrations in the environment, and the two forms of exposure that may occur, namely to Cu ions and Cu nanoparticles.

Aquat Toxicol 2020 May 9;222:105467. Epub 2020 Mar 9.

The Key Laboratory of Leather Chemistry and Engineering of Ministry of Education, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, 610065, China; National Engineering Laboratory for Clean Technology of Leather Manufacture, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, 610065, China.

This paper reports the proportion-dependent toxicity of binary surfactant mixtures containing anionic sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and nonionic fatty alcohol-polyoxyethlene ether (AEO) toward Photobacterium phosphoreum. The crucial role of toxicity interactions was elucidated by spectroscopic probing the refolding of the unfolded bovine serum albumin (BSA) induced by SDS and theoretical calculating the interaction parameter of mixed surfactants based on Rubingh's model from the critical micelle concentrations. The SDS/AEO mixtures can be divided into two groups based on the toxicity response to the proportion of AEO in the mixtures: Group I contained low mass proportions of AEO, that is, SDS:AEO = 4:1, 3:1; Group II featured high AEO proportions, that is, SDS:AEO = 3:2, 1:1, 2:3, 1:4.

Ultraviolet-B radiation induces transcriptional modulation of components associated with the extracellular matrix in embryos of decapod Macrobrachium olfersii.

Aquat Toxicol 2020 May 9;222:105468. Epub 2020 Mar 9.

Departamento de Biologia Celular, Embriologia e Genética, Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil. Electronic address:

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a non-cellular and three-dimensional structure, constituted by a macromolecular dynamic network that involves the cells in all animal tissues, including embryonic ones. Several studies with vertebrates and cell cultures have reported deleterious effects of ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation on the components associated with the ECM. However, studies focusing on the UVB radiation effects on ECM components of crustaceans during embryonic development are very scarce. Read More

Effect of Louisiana sweet crude oil on a Pacific coral, Pocillopora damicornis.

Aquat Toxicol 2020 May 28;222:105454. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Ocean Service, National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, Stressor Detection and Impacts Division, Hollings Marine Laboratory, 331 Fort Johnson Rd., Charleston, SC, 29412, USA.

Recent oil spill responses such as the Deepwater Horizon event have underscored the need for crude oil ecotoxicological threshold data for shallow water corals to assist in natural resource damage assessments. We determined the toxicity of a mechanically agitated oil-seawater mixture (high-energy water-accommodated fraction, HEWAF) of a sweet crude oil on a branched stony coral, Pocillopora damicornis. We report the results of two experiments: a 96 h static renewal exposure experiment and a "pulse-chase" experiment of three short-term exposure durations followed by a recovery period in artificial seawater.

Massive use of glyphosate-based herbicides in agricultural activities has led to the appearance of this herbicide in freshwater systems, which represents a potential threat to these systems and their communities. These herbicides can affect autotrophic and heterotrophic picoplankton abundance. However, little is known about glyphosate impact on the whole structure of these assemblages. Read More

Optimal number of Fucus vesiculosus samples to differentiate between sites affected by distinct levels of heavy metal contamination.

Aquat Toxicol 2020 May 4;222:105465. Epub 2020 Mar 4.

Ecology Unit, Dept. Functional Biology, Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Fac. Biología, Lope Gómez de Marzoa s/n, Santiago de Compostela, 15782 A, Coruña, Spain.

The presence of trace elements in marine habitats is a serious environmental problem which increasingly affects ecosystem and human health. The use of macroalgae as contamination biomonitors represents a valuable alternative approach to traditional physicochemical methods. The present study was carried out to determine the optimal number of samples of Fucus vesiculosus needed to detect statistically significant differences in the mean concentrations of Al, As, Cd, Co Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Ni, Pb, Zn, N and δN between two sampling sites affected by different levels of contamination.

A method for CRISPR/Cas9 mutation of genes in fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas).

Aquat Toxicol 2020 May 2;222:105464. Epub 2020 Mar 2.

Great Lakes Toxicology and Ecology Division, US Environmental Protection Agency, 6201 Congdon Blvd., Duluth, MN, 55804, USA.

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/Cas9 genome editing allows for the disruption or modification of genes in a multitude of model organisms. In the present study, we describe and employ the method for use in the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas), in part, to assist in the development and validation of adverse outcome pathways (AOPs). The gene coding for an enzyme responsible for melanin production, tyrosinase (tyr), was the initial target chosen for development and assessment of the method since its disruption results in abnormal pigmentation, a phenotype obvious within 3-4 d after injection of fathead minnow embryos.
