Fruit Fly Brain Research Published in Neurotoxicology

Boz Institute is proud to announce the publication of a new paper, Locomotion and brain gene expression exhibit sex-specific non-monotonic dose-response to HFPO-DA during Drosophila melanogaster lifespan. The paper was published in Neurotoxicology, volume 96, and examines the potential sex-specific stress responses to a new chemical (HFPO-DA) used in manufacturing processes on populations of fruit flies. Due to the public health concern of prior chemicals (PFAS) used in manufacturing, this paper aims to uncover the potential effects this replacement chemical (HFPO-DA) has on the brain, behavior and lifespan.
