  1. 1. Cellular transport and secretion of the cyanobacterial neurotoxin BMAA into milk and egg Implications for developmental neurotoxicity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marie Andersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; BMAA; beta-N-methylamino-L-alanine; milk; secretion; amino acid transporter; autoradiography; metabolism; Biologi med inriktning mot ekotoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology;

    Abstract : The cyanobacterial amino acid β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) is a neurotoxin implicated in the etiology of neurodegenerative diseases. Cyanobacteria are cosmopolitan organisms present in various environments. READ MORE

  2. 2. Developmental Neurotoxicity of Environmental Pollutants : Effects on neuronal protein markers after neonatal exposure

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala University, Department of Organismal Biology

    Author : Iwa Lee; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental neurotoxicity; Neonatal exposure; Protein markers; Environmental pollutants; Biologi med inriktning mot ekotoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology;

    Abstract : This thesis focused on investigations of the developmental neurotoxic effects of bisphenol A (BPA) or perfluorohexane sulfonate (PFHxS), after a single neonatal exposure, during a critical period of the brain development in mice.BPA is a well-known industrial chemical used in the production of polymer products and PFHxS is used as an industrial additive as a surfactant.

  3. 3. Proteomic Characterization of Induced Developmental Neurotoxicity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Henrik Alm; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Proteomics; Brain Development; Neurotoxicity; 2D-DIGE; Brain Growth Spurt; Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether; Neonatal; Striatum; Hippocampus; Cerebral Cortex; Parkinsonism; Dyskinesia; PHARMACY Toxicology; FARMACI Toxikologi; Toxicology; Toxikologi;

    Abstract : The developing brain goes through a number of developmental periods during which it displays an increased sensitivity to exogenous disturbances. On such period is the so called “Brain growth spurt” (BGS) which in humans takes place starting from the third trimester of pregnancy and throughout the first few years of life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developmental Neurotoxicity in Mice Neonatally Co-exposed to Environmental Agents PCB, PBDE, Methyl Mercury and Ionized Radiation - Interactions and Effects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Celia Fischer; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Biology; PCB; PBDE; MeHg; ionized radiation; neonatal; development; neurotoxicity; behavior; cholinergic system; Biologi;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the neurotoxic effects in mice neonatally co-exposed to different toxic environmental agents during a defined critical period of the brains's rapid growth and development.Environmental toxic agents are incorporated in our environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neonatal Developmental Neurotoxicity of Brominated Flame Retardants, the Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Henrik Viberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; brominated flame retardants; polybrominated diphenyl ethers; PBDE; neonatal; development; neurotoxicity; behaviour; cholinergic system; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : This thesis examines developmental neurotoxic effects of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), PBDE 99, PBDE 153, and the fully brominated PBDE 209, after exposure during the newborn period in rodents.Our environment contains vast numbers of contaminants, including the flame retardants, PBDEs.
