MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR ENDOCRINOLOGY, 247(1-2), 91–102.

By: T. Gorr*, C. Rider n, H. Wang n, A. Olmstead n & G. LeBlanc n

author keywords: methyl farnesoate; juvenoid; crustacean; response element; sex determination
MeSH headings : Animals; Base Sequence; Cycloheximide / pharmacology; Daphnia / genetics; Daphnia / physiology; Fatty Acids, Unsaturated / metabolism; Hemoglobins / biosynthesis; Hemoglobins / genetics; Hemoglobins / physiology; Juvenile Hormones / metabolism; Molecular Sequence Data; Promoter Regions, Genetic; Pyridines / metabolism; RNA, Messenger / biosynthesis; Receptors, Cytoplasmic and Nuclear / genetics; Receptors, Cytoplasmic and Nuclear / metabolism; Response Elements; Signal Transduction

TL;DR: It is demonstrated that two responses to environmental stress signaling in the crustacean Daphnia magna - hemoglobin accumulation and male offspring production - are co-elevated by the crustACEan terpenoid hormone methyl farnesoate and several synthetic analogs, suggesting that both processes are regulated by the same ter penoid signaling pathway.

Toxicity Assessment of Environmentally Relevant Pollutant Mixtures Using a Heuristic Model

INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT, 1(2), 114–122.

author keywords: Mixture toxicology; Mixture model; Daphnid; Insecticides; Pollutants
MeSH headings : Animals; Daphnia; Endpoint Determination; Environmental Pollutants / toxicity; Forecasting; Models, Theoretical; Sensitivity and Specificity; Xenobiotics / toxicity
TL;DR: Toxicity was not influenced significantly by interactions among the chemicals and a single constituent dominated toxicity, and the median detected environmental concentrations of chemicals constituting this mixture provided no margin of safety. (via Semantic Scholar)

Non-target toxicology of a new mosquito larvicide, trypsin modulating oostatic factor

PESTICIDE BIOCHEMISTRY AND PHYSIOLOGY, 80(3), 131–142.

author keywords: trypsin modulating oostatic factor; TMOF; insecticide; mosquito; mouse; rabbit; duck; water flea
TL;DR: It appears from these studies that T MOF can be degraded by vertebrate digestive proteases and technical TMOF is not toxic to the non-target organisms examined. (via Semantic Scholar)
