Developing an amphibian environmental stress sensor for specific bio-hazards
Where: WatchFrog (Paris, France)

Understanding how environmental stressors affect health requires screening methods that are rapid, sensitive, and yet provide physiological, preferably in vivo, information. WatchFrog is developing alternative aquatic models to identify endocrine disruptors or toxicants. Our technology relies on aquatic vertebrate animal models (Xenopus and Medaka) that fluoresce when a biological function is activated. We are proposing here the development of a new Xenopus laevis transgenic line able to detect a specific compound that is a major concern for some industrials and for environment. Read more
