Table 1 Different types of transgenic zebrafish used to the nanoparticle/chemical toxicity study

From: Zebrafish: A complete animal model to enumerate the nanoparticle toxicity

  Nanoparticle/chemicals used Transgenic zebrafish type that is used to understand the nanoparticle toxicity Remark References
1. TiO2, SiO2, CuO Transgenic (nacre/fli1:EGFP) zebrafish Transgenic fish exposed to TiO2,SiO2, CuO particles with a concentration of 0.01, 1 and 100 μg/ml concentrations and noted that CuO nanoparticles inhibit vasculogenesis [140]
2. TiO2, C60(OH)24) (hydroxylated fullerenes/) Gene expression of zebrafish embryos Circadian rhythm gene/(s) deregulated by nanoparticles [141]
3. TiO(2) ARE transgenic zebrafish Exposure TiO(2) nanoparticle cause death of zebrafish embryos [137]
4. Small molecules Transgenic embryos expressing green fluorescent protein in myocardium Small molecule alter in heart rate of transgenic embryos [142]
5. Metal oxide nanoparticles such as CuO, ZnO, NiO, and Co(3)O(4)) hsp70:eGFP transgenic zebrafish larvae CuO, ZnO, and NiO may augmented expression of hsp70:eGFP in transgenic zebrafish larvae [136]
6. Inorganic nanorods Transgenic (fli1a:EGFP) zebrafish embryos This study noted that—ROS mediated angiogenesis in transgenic zebrafish embryo using inorganic nanorods [143]
7. Cadmium selenium (CdSe) quantum dots (QDs) coated with mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) FLI-1 transgenic zebrafish larvae abnormal vascularization occoured in transgenic zebrafish larvae [144]
8 Mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNPs) lysC:DsRED2 transgenic embryos It can be used to deliver bioactive compounds [145]
