While testis disease was similar between the F1 controls and F1 atrazine-lineage rats, the F2 and F3 atrazine rats had more testis disease that their controls, with about 25% of the F3 generation ("a five-fold increase in disease risk") affected.
Environmental Protection Agency, the Washington D.C.-based Environmental Working Group concluded that water utilities are testing for atrazine at times when farmers aren't using it -- the growing season typically spans late spring and early summer -- and also appear to be lowballing their numbers.
Solymos explained that atrazine was used in agriculture between 1998 and 2005.
Thus, the present work aimed to develop and apply a method based on the solid-phase extraction of caffeine, atrazine, and carbamazepine followed by the quantification by ultra-efficiency liquid chromatography coupled to a high-resolution hybrid mass spectrometer (quadrupole-time-of-flight).
For the combination of atrazine + simazine it is observed a higher toxicity with the increase of doses.
We observed the effects of exposure of two herbicides (atrazine and metolachlor), one insecticide (carbaryl), and one fungicide (chlorothalonil) on aquatic gastropods.
Atrazine and diuron were obtained from Sigma-Aldrich in pure analytic quality.
Soil samples (10 and 5g) mixed with the residue for the pesticides atrazine orfipronil, respectively, were weighed separately, and Ca[Cl.sub.2] (10mL, 0.01mol [L.sup.-1]) aqueous solution was added to each flask.
Still, any exposure to atrazine can have profound health effects on the human reproductive system, liver, kidneys and heart.
Our results showed that 1) two chemical compounds (BPA and atrazine) can exert opposite estrogenic effects in the same cancer cell (seminoma) through the same receptor (GPR30), and 2) the same chemical compound (atrazine) can exert opposite effects in different cancer cells (seminoma, ovarian, or breast) through the same GPR30 receptor.
The WCE was maximum with 2 hand weeding closely followed by combined application of atrazine 0.75 kg/ ha + pendimethalin 0.5 kg/ha and alachlor 0.75 kg/ha + metribuzin 0.375 kg/ha and metribuzin 0.75 kg/ha, alachlor 1.5 kg/ha alone, but lowest WCE found with post-emergence application of combined application of atrazine 0.5 kg/ ha + 2,4-D 0.5 kg/ha followed by brown manuring (Sesbania @ 20 kg/ha+ 2,4-D 0.5 kg/ha.
