NONYLPHENOL INDUCES EXPRESSION OF THE T-BOX6 GENE IN ZEBRAFISH EMBRYOS: Treatment of zebrafish

For morphological effects observation zebrafish embryo test was carried out according to 31: In each well of a 24well dish 5 zebrafish embryos (4-8-cell stage) were exposed for 48 hr at 26°C to 1 ml test solution containing one NP isomer (2.5-50 ^mol/L) and 1% DMSO resulting in a total number of 60 embryos for each test, either exposure or control. Since all experiments were repeated twice a total of 120 zebrafish embryos were used for each concentration of each chemical. Negative controls were exposed to the 1% DMSO solvent only. EC50 was calculated from concentration-effect curves for the spinal malformations. Measurement was the amount of embryo showing any spinal deformation without respecting a certain degree of the misdevelopment. Four-parameter logistic curves were used to describe the concentration-effect relation. From these, EC50 values were calculated.

For RT-PCR 3-4 hr old zebrafish embryos were placed into 24-well dishes (5 embryos per well). For each experiment, either exposure or control, 30 embryos were used. The embryos were treated with the indicated NP at a final concentration of 10 ^mol/L for 1 hr in water containing DMSO at 26 °C. These parameters were chosen because in preliminary experiments expression effects were observable after 1 hr and the concentration of NP were selected on the basis of our previous study 23. After incubation, the embryos were washed in fresh water and subsequently shock frozen in liquid nitrogen. All experiments -covering 6 NP isomers, the technical NP mixture (Table 1) and a negative control with DMSO only – were repeated 5 times at different days. The concentration of the test substances was 10 ^mol/L, i.e., in the range of EC10 – EC50 of acute morphological effects of NP isomers in zebrafish after 48h exposure 23.

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
