Role of TiO2 Nanoparticle on Growth and Development of Drosophila Melanogaster

Moharana , Sibani (2015) Role of TiO2 Nanoparticle on Growth and Development of Drosophila Melanogaster. MSc thesis.



In modern days the growth and progress of nanotechnology has tremendous. A nanoparticle (or nanopowder or nanocluster) is a microscopic particle with at least one dimension less than 100 nm.Nanoparticle-based technologies are the fastly growing side of our industrial, medical and environmental economies. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nano particles (NPs) are synthesized worldwide in huge quantities for accomplishing in a wide range of applications. TiO2 NPs have many physicochemical properties on the contrary of their fine particle (FP) analogs, which might affect their bioactivity. Titanium oxide (TiO2) is obtainable in the form of nanocrystals or nanodots having a high surface area. They demonstrate magnetic properties. As one of the assuring nanomaterial TiO2 has have stimulated a large attention in catalysis ,coating, chemical sensing and a lot of other scientific field due to unusual properties.The fruit fly Drosophila Melanogaster is the well known sightseer and an organism of preference in genetics laboratories. The gut is one of the largest organs in the body cavity.. The fruit fly is small and has a simple diet. Therefore, large numbers of flies can be maintained inexpensively in the laboratory. The life cycle is also very short, taking about two weeks, so large-scale crosses can be set up and followed through several generations in a matter of months. Fruit flies also have large polytene chromosomes, whose barcode patterns of light and dark bands allow genes to be mapped accurately. Here in this study the aim was to check the toxic concentration of TiO2 on the growth and development of Drosophila Melanogaster
