Abstract: Single-use plastic production is higher now than ever before. Much of this plastic is released into aquatic environments, where it is eventually weathered into smaller nanoscale plastics. In addition to potential direct biological effects, nanoplastics may also modulate the biological effects of hydrophobic persistent organic legacy contaminants (POPs) that absorb to their surfaces. In this study, we test the hypothesis that developmental exposure (0–7 dpf) of zebrafish to the emerging contaminant polystyrene … Show more

“…This lack of commercially available NPs other than PS particles led to a surge in research on the synthesis of fluorescent particles, and several groups reported protocols to generate traceable particles, either by integrating fluorescent organics or metals. [24,[68][69][70] Fluorescent particles have been used to track the capture of NPs in nanocellulose networks, [71] test the stability of NPs in digestion protocols, [72] and to study the uptake in organisms such as maize plants, [73] marine larvae, [68] diatom algae, [69] acorn barnacle, [70] daphnia magna, [74][75][76] mouse brain cells, [77] zebrafish, [78,79] and freshwater mussels. [80] It should be noted that leaching of the fluorescent dye (even from commercial particles) and autofluorescence in organic matrices might make the interpretation of results challenging or misleading, as was shown when the fluorophores alone agglomerated within zebrafish larvae and the fish larvae itself displayed green autofluorescence.…”

“…It is also used for textile, parts of automotives and electronics 35,36 . Although, several studies addressing the toxicity of nanoplastics focused on presence of other polymer, e.g., polystyrene (PS) nanoparticles [28][29][30][31][32] , the toxicity associated with PET and toxicity mechanisms, remain largely unstudied. PET particles have been found in groundwater, drinking water, soils and sediments and in the air 30,31,35,37 .…”

“…As nanoplastics are essentially inert, their toxicity might be caused by the particulate nature (which is often altered in the biological system due to adsorption with other biomolecules) or by additives or other small organic molecules that leach out after uptake and are hazardous to human health 25,27 . In past years, most toxicological studies have focused on polystyrene nanoparticles (PS NPs) [28][29][30][31][32][33] . Studies have been carried out using human cell culture or fish larvae to address the toxicological impact of PS NPs and to understand the metabolic pathways affected at cellular and molecular level [28][29][30][31][32][33][34] .…”
