Abstract The pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease has not been fully clarified yet but its cause is known to be multifactorial. One of these factors is oxidative stress induced by exposure to environmental toxifiers. We studied the effect of Bisphenol A (BPA) at concentrations of 0.5 mM and 1 mM, the concentration of 1 mM corresponding to Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Level (LOAEL) for humans in adult Drosophila melanogaster. The BPA induced oxidative stress was established by increased levels of malondialdehyde, reactive species, and decreased activity of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase and catalase, and detoxificant enzyme glutathione-S-transferase. Associated with oxidative stress, there was a reduction of acetylcholinesterase activity and a reduction of dopamine levels, which are related to the decreased locomotion activity as observed in negative geotaxis, open field and equilibrium behaviors in group exposed to 1 mM of BPA. Oxidative stress also impaired mitochondrial and cellular metabolic activity in the head causing an increase in the mortality of flies exposed to both BPA concentrations. Therefore, BPA induced Parkinsonian-like changes in flies and it is possible that the oxidative stress is closely related to this effect, providing new insights for future studies.

Abstract Neurodegeneration in Parkinson's disease appears to be caused by multiple factors, including oxidative damage and an increase in acetylcholinesterase expression that can culminate in loss of dopaminergic neurons. A selenium-containing quinoline derivative, 7-chloro-4-(phenylselanyl) quinoline (4-PSQ), shows important pharmacological actions mainly attributed to its antioxidant and anticholinesterase properties. Thus, this study investigated the neuroprotective effect of 4-PSQ in a model...

Abstract This study investigates Bisphenol A (BPA) induced oxidative stress that mediates the genotoxicity in in vivo model Drosophila melanogaster. The calculated LC50 for BPA was 12.35 μg/mL. The strains of D. melanogaster were reared in 0.1, 1.0, 2.5 and 5.0 μg/mL BPA treated food media from the embryonic stage (egg); oxidative stress and genotoxicity parameters were analyzed. Food intake analysis confirmed that BPA is not an anti feedant for Drosophila larvae and it consumed BPA containing f...

: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder characterized by selective and progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons. Genetic and environmental risk factors are associated with this disease. The genetic factors are composed of approximately 20 genes, such as SNCA, parkin, PTEN-induced kinase1 (pink1), leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2), ATP13A2, MAPT, VPS35, and DJ-1, whereas the environmental factors consist of oxidative stress-induced toxins such as 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1, ...

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common cause of movement disorders and is characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. It is increasingly recognized as a complex group of disorders presenting widely heterogeneous symptoms and pathology. With the exception of the rare monogenic forms, the majority of PD cases result from an interaction between multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. The search for these risk factors and the development of pr...

Abstract Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of the most widely used synthetic compounds on the planet. Upon entering the diet, its highest concentration (1–104 ng/g of tissue) has been recorded in the placenta and fetus. This accumulation of BPA can have many health hazards ranging from the easy to repair single strand DNA breaks (SSBs) to error prone double strand DNA breaks (DSBs). Although the Human liver can efficiently metabolize BPA via glucuronidation and sulfation pathways, however the by-product ...

Abstract Oxidative stress results in substantial biochemical and physiological perturbations in essentially all organisms. To determine the broad metabolic effects of oxidative stress, we have quantified the response in Drosophila melanogaster to both genetically and environmentally derived oxidative stress. Flies were challenged with loss of Superoxide dismutase activity or chronic or acute exposure to the oxidizing chemical paraquat. Metabolic changes were then quantified using a recently deve...

Abstract Atrazine is an extensively used herbicide, and has become a common environmental contaminant. Effects on dopaminergic neurotransmission in mammals following exposure to atrazine have been previously demonstrated. Here, the effects of atrazine regarding behavioural and dopaminergic neurotransmission parameters were assessed in the fruit fly D. melanogaster , exposed during embryonic and larval development. Embryos (newly fertilized eggs) were exposed to two atrazine concentrations (10 μM...

Abstract Oxidative stress plays an important role in both the initiation and progression of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Rotenone, an environmental toxin, induces oxidative stress and impact mitochondrial dynamics, including fission and fusion. Thymoquinone (TQ) has been reported to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics in vitro and in vivo. TQ scavenges free radicals so prevents cell damage against oxidative agents. To evaluate the efficacy of TQ in the management of PD, male Wist...

Neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are responsible for behavioral deficits in children. Imidacloprid is a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist, capable of causing behavioral changes in Drosophila melanogaster, similar to the ADHD-like phenotypes. We assess whether behavioral damage induced by imidacloprid exposure in Drosophila melanogaster is associated with neurochemical changes and whether these changes ...

Due to its widespread applications and its ubiquitous occurrence in the environment, bisphenol A (BPA) and its alternatives have gained increasing attention, especially in terms of human safety. Like BPA, alternatives such as bisphenol S (BPS), bisphenol F (BPF), and bisphenol AF (BPAF) have also been identified to be endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Hence, in this study, we reviewed the literature of BPA and its alternatives mainly published between the period 2018-2020, including their o...

Abstract Iron (Fe) is used in various cellular functions, and a constant balance between its uptake, transport, storage, and use is necessary to maintain its homeostasis in the body. Changes in Fe metabolism with a consequent overload of this metal are related to neurological changes and cover a broad spectrum of diseases, mainly when these changes occur during the embryonic period. This work aimed to evaluate the effect of exposure to Fe overload during the embryonic period of Drosophila melano...

Abstract Bisphenol A (BPA), an endocrine-disrupting chemical, is present in everyday-used consumables and common household products. Although the side effects of BPA have been sufficiently explored, little is known the effects of environmentally relevant low levels of BPA on chondrogenesis in skeletal development. Here we used a morphological approach to investigate whether exposure to BPA (0, 0.0038, 0.05, 0.1, 1.0 μM) could affect craniofacial cartilage development of zebrafish embryo. Further...

Background: The growing demand for agricultural products has led to the misuse/overuse of insecticides; resulting in the use of higher concentrations and the need for ever more toxic products. Ecologically, bioinsecticides are considered better and safer than synthetic insecticides; they must be toxic to the target organism, yet with low or no toxicity to non-target organisms. Many plant extracts have seen their high insecticide potential confirmed under laboratory conditions, and in the search ...

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a ubiquitous environmental chemical that has been linked to behavioral differences in children and shown to impact critical neurodevelopmental processes in animal models. Though data is emerging, we still have an incomplete picture of how BPA disrupts neurodevelopment; in particular, how its impacts may vary across different genetic backgrounds. Given the genetic tractability of Drosophila melanogaster, they present a valuable model to address this question. Fruit flies are ...

Redox dysfunctions and neuro-oxidative stress play a major role in the pathophysiology and progression of Parkinson's disease (PD). Glutathione (GSH) and the reduced/oxidized glutathione (GSH/GSSG) ratio are lowered in oxidative stress conditions and may lead to increased oxidative toxicity. GSH is involved not only in neuro-immune and neuro-oxidative processes, including thiol redox signaling, but also in cell proliferation and differentiation and in the regulation of cell death, including apop...
