- Mechanistic toxicity study of perfluorooctanoic acid in zebrafish suggests mitochondrial dysfunction to play a key role in PFOA toxicityA Hagenaars
Systemic Physiological and Ecotoxicological Research, Department of Biology, University of Antwerp, Groenenborgerlaan 171, Antwerpen, Belgium
Chemosphere 91:844-56. 2013..Despite this increase in metabolic expenditure, no effects on reproduction were found indicating that the fish seemed to cope with exposure to the tested concentrations of PFOA during the exposure period of 1 month...
- Toxicity evaluation of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in the liver of common carp (Cyprinus carpio)A Hagenaars
Department of Biology, Research Unit Ecophysiology, Biochemistry and Toxicology, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium
Aquat Toxicol 88:155-63. 2008..Our results support the prediction that increases in energy expenditure negatively affects processes vital to the survival of an organism, such as growth...
- Structure-activity relationship assessment of four perfluorinated chemicals using a prolonged zebrafish early life stage testA Hagenaars
Department of Biology, Research Unit Ecophysiology, Biochemistry and Toxicology, University of Antwerp, Groenenborgerlaan 171, B 2020 Antwerp, Belgium
Chemosphere 82:764-72. 2011..Effects on hatching rate and success were found in PFOA exposed embryos and heart rates were affected after exposure to PFOS, PFOA and PFBS...
- The search for alternative aqueous film forming foams (AFFF) with a low environmental impact: physiological and transcriptomic effects of two Forafac(®) fluorosurfactants in turbotA Hagenaars
Department of Biology, Research Unit Ecophysiology, Biochemistry and Toxicology, University of Antwerp, Groenenborgerlaan 171, 2020 Antwerpen, Belgium
Aquat Toxicol 104:168-76. 2011..Taking into account that Forafac(®)1157 appeared to be less toxic than PFOS, this mixture could be considered as a more environmentally acceptable PFOS alternative for the use in AFFFs...
- PFOS affects posterior swim bladder chamber inflation and swimming performance of zebrafish larvaeA Hagenaars
Zebrafishlab, Veterinary Physiology and Biochemistry, Department of Veterinary Sciences, University of Antwerp, Universiteitsplein 1, 2610 Wilrijk, Belgium
Aquat Toxicol 157:225-35. 2014..PFOS clearly affects processes that take place during the inflation phase and might also have an effect on the formation of the tissue layers forming the swim bladder...
