Master regulator of microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (Mitf) and the other downstream melanogenic-related genes were verified via quantitative real time PCR (qPCR). Zebrafish as a model vertebrate for investigating chemical toxicity. Recently, we have revealed that resveratrol and other natural polyphenols attenuate D-GalN/LPS-induced hepatitis. Derived from its use, have been reported comparable results to the data obtained with higher models[14-16]. Orthotropic tumor xenografts have been reported that have pushed this model for clinical relevance. Dtsch Arztebl Int 2014;111:161-8. Expert Opinion on Drug Metabolism & Toxicology. Callus was successfully induced from both explant types at different rates, where media with 0.6 mg L−1 of TDZ resulted in the highest fresh weight (3.38 ± 0.08 g). For this purpose, the cardiovascular function of the animals needs to be evaluated to reveal the influence of exposure on the development of the cardiovascular … Here we compare the toxicity profiles of 20 compounds for this General and Behavioral Toxicity (GBT) assay to the ZET assay. To face this flow of novel genetic information, it is important to have suitable animal models to study the mechanisms regulating thyroid development and thyroid hormone availability and activity. 99. The zebrafish embryo offers an inexpensive system that combines many features that are desirable for the development of new approaches to drug development (Bowman and Zon, 2010).As a vertebrate, the zebrafish shares a high degree of conservation with mammalian systems: the genomes of zebrafish and humans are highly related and contain … However, establishing efficacy, biodistribution, and biotoxicity of complex, multicomponent systems in small animal models can be expensive and time-consuming. The developing zebrafish is a well-established model system for studies of energy metabolism, and is amenable to genetic, physiological, and biochemical approaches. In conclusion, the zebrafish presents a powerful in vivo preclinical model for assessing the adverse effects of a wide range of drugs as well as to determine drug efficacy. 105. For instance, rodents can be insensitive to compounds’ cardiotoxicity, particularly when the endpoint measurement is left ventricular contractile function[25]. This model is powerful in its breadth of application and tractability for research. Toxicol Lett 2016;241:143-51. PLoS One 2014;9:e91874. The zebrafish presents itself as a reliable vertebrate model to evaluate, developmental toxicity, general toxicity and to make an initial drug screening. Zebrafish [electronic resource] : methods for assessing drug safety and toxicity / edited by Patricia McGrath. 11. To sum up, our findings provide an important first key step for both of the chalcone derivatives to be further studied and developed as potent depigmenting agents. Overall, we have developed and validated for the first time a robust in vitro screening assay for SSO liver safety profiling which allows rapid prioritization of candidate molecules early on in development. Exploiting the transparency of the embryo has permitted detailed optical mapping and the characterization of the cardiac conduction system[53]. The evaluation whether an age dependency in the clearance (CL) of doxorubicin exists has led to the conclusion that the lower CL in younger population should be considered, together with pharmacodynamics. Thomas D, Karle CA, Kiehn J. J Pharmacol Exp Ther 2008;324:160-9. Toxic effects on zebrafish embryo caused by effluents from microalgae treatment were compared with those observed under exposure to experimental solutions with known concentrations of acetaminophen.

This issue has been addressed by using juvenile mice[45], concluding that treatment with high cumulative doses of doxorubicin induced cardiomyocyte atrophy, myofiber disarray, low levels of cardiomyocyte apoptosis, and altered expression of structural and regulatory proteins, normalization from the treatment was observed after a 13-week recovery period. It is associated with potential QT interval prolongation, an indicator of fatal cardiac side effects in the heart's electric cycle [1]. Toxicol Sci 2013;135:402-13. 53. doi. The transparency of the larval zebrafish, and the genetic and physiological similarity of its digestive system to that of mammals make it a promising system in which to address questions of energy homeostasis relevant to human health. However, the process is costly and time consuming, which has led to a backlog in chemical testing[26]. This review examines the latest research using zebrafish as a study model and highlights its power as a tool for detecting toxicity of medicinal plants and its effectiveness at enhancing the understanding of new drug generation. Those events are linked to a higher risk of torsade, , presenting some limitations. Therefore, preclinical assessment of hepatic liability currently relies on rodent studies that require large cohorts of animals and lengthy protocols. Those events are linked to a higher risk of torsade de pointes (TdP) being a very complex process to accurately predict its scale. Hepatology 2009;50:1656-63. In spite of their proven efficacy, the development of promising SSO drug candidates has been limited by reported cases of SSO-associated hepatotoxicity. The goal of this review was to develop a link to ethnopharmacological zebrafish studies that can be used by other researchers to conduct future research. Using those tools, we conclude that zebrafish behaviors as an excellent small animal model to perform real-time monitoring for the developmental heart process with transparent body appearance, to conduct the in vivo cardiovascular performance and gene function assays, as well as to perform high-throughput/high content drug screening. Recently, its potential as an effective biopesticide has garnered attention, especially towards efficient and continuous production of its bioactive compounds. The zebrafish has contributed to obtain measurements as action potential trough voltage mapping, to determine cells coupling[20], and this fact together with calcium signaling, are important for cardiomyocyte proliferation and differentiation[21]. 79. Its use, in conjunction with approaches based on those presented in this review, would contribute significantly to the literature and would facilitate the implementation of innovative, comprehensive, and cost-effective testing strategies. The decrement of melanin production and tyrosinase activity were correlated with the mRNA suppression of Mitf which in turn down-regulate Tyr, Trp-1 and Trp-2. Nord J Psychiatry 2008;62:342-5.

The movement away from mammalian testing of potential toxicants and new chemical entities has primarily led to cell line testing and protein-based assays. Several models are available to screen the hepatotoxic or hepatoprotective activity of any substance. For example, the zebrafish embryo has been used as a human heart model due to its body transparency, surviving several days without circulation, and facilitating mutant identification to recapitulate human diseases. These preclinical studies quickly assess toxicity and efficacy of new drugs, saving both time and money, necessities in … On the other hand, in vitro tests used to assess biosafety lack the potency and the translational attributes of a whole animal. All rights reserved. Despite higher animals have been for many year models of excellence used to evaluate drugs toxicity, the zebrafish presents itself as a reliable vertebrate model to determine, developmental toxicity, general toxicity and to perform an initial drug screening. H, to those of humans. Modulatory effects of meloxicam on cardiotoxicity and antitumor activity of doxorubicin in mice.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2007;104:11316-21. Nat Rev Genet 2007;85:353-67. Some authors correlate also the increased expression of neuronal sodium channels within the heart to epilepsy-related cardiac arrhythmias associated with QT prolongation on the electrocardiogram[12]. Substrate depletion and production of their respective metabolites were measured using tandem quadrupole UPLC-MS/MS. Protective effect of captopril against clozapine-induced myocarditis in rats: role of oxidative stress, proinflammatory cytokines and DNA damage. Pharmacol Rep 2009;61:154-71. Thus, the use of this model is uniquely positioned among vertebrates as a platform for small molecule screening and efficacy testing: the zebrafish is used to identify novel drugs associated with molecular pathways, with the purpose to treat human diseases. Cells were exposed to a short-term (2 h) using a concentration range. Despite superior animals have been for many year models of excellence used to evaluate drugs toxicity, population's pressure seeks, theirs reduction. Lancet 2007;370:2011-9. At the end of the batch culture, a 67% removal was provided by CS with a reduction of 62% in the total abnormalities on the exposed zebrafish embryo. The researchers are realizing a major benefit of drug development made possible with the use of zebrafish: high-throughput screening of small molecules. In conclusion, in vitro CYP-mediated drug metabolism in adult zebrafish shows differences compared to man and appears to be lacking in the early zebrafish life stages. Severe myoclonic epilepsy in infancy: Dravet syndrome. Nat Rev Genet 2001;2:39-48. Genome Res 2000;10:1351-8. The zebrafish is particularly suitable for this purpose because it represents a vertebrate species, its genome has been sequenced[2], and a large number of synchronously developing, transparent embryos can be produced[11]. Similarly to the DS syndrome, other genetic modifications that lead to heart disorders associated with structural heart defects can be found, including the human-like cardiomyopathies (DCMs)[89], which together with the silent heart or the pickwick mutans, present poor heart contractility. First, a developed perfusion method for isolated immobilized hepatocytes that improves the process of oxygenation and helps in end-product removal is of considerable value in improving cell maintenance. Zebrafish: Methods for Assessing Drug Safety and Toxicity offers a practical guide for using zebrafish as a tool for toxicology studies.

A deeper understanding of the zebrafish model of liver toxicity, which has been underutilized, will therefore permit better drug prediction and reduce the need for drug withdrawal. Here, we describe the establishment and validation of an in vitro assay using primary hepatocytes that recapitulates the hepatotoxic profile of SSOs previously observed in rodents. Recent Pat Cardiovasc Drug Discov 2009;4:1-5. zebrafish are similar to those in humans. It appears from this work that these two assays applied together can strengthen the use of zebrafish embryos/larvae as standard toxicity testing models. Zebrafish is emerging as a predictive animal model for in vivo assessment of drug efficacy, toxicity, and safety. eNeuro 2015;2:ENEURO.0068-15.2015. Additionally, despite the identification of many fatty acid and lipid transport proteins expressed by vertebrates, the cell biological processes that mediate the transport of dietary lipids from the intestinal lumen to the interior of enterocytes remain to be elucidated.

The present study investigated the effect of the plant growth regulators (PGRs) thiadiazuron (TDZ) and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) on the induction of colored callus formation and subsequent accumulation of azadirachtin (AZA) in A. indica. However, those 3 BKIs affecting zebrafish embryos only at high concentrations (40µM or higher) did not impair mouse pregnancy at all, and those 3 compounds that inhibited zebrafish embryo development already at 0.2µM showed detrimental effects in the pregnancy model. The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is used as an embryonic and larval model to perform in vitro experiments and developmental toxicity studies. The biopsy may be approached systematically, by identification of histologic lesions and then identification of the overall pattern of injury. Toxicol Sci 2005;86:6-19. These results suggested that the addition of different PGRs during in vitro culture could prominently affect callus and secondary metabolite production and can further be manipulated as a sustainable method for the production of a natural and environmentally friendly pesticide. In this review we will highlight how the zebrafish contributes to drug discovery by in vivo chemical screening and as a disease model. Screening technologies exist and are being further developed in zebrafish, which should provide very early details of potential off-target effects on the cardiac system as well as other functions such as effects on central nervous system, on the intestinal tract, auditory and visual functions, pro-convulsant potential and bone formation.
