- Low levels of Se-Met-alone has certain adverse effects on zebrafish embryos.

- MAPKs and NF-kB pathways may be alleviating mechanism of Se-Met-to f toxicity.
Fish are target organisms that are extremely susceptible to fluoride pollution, and an increase in fluoride load will damage multiple systems of fish. Selenomethionine (Se-Met) at low levels has been reported to alleviate oxidative damage and inflammation caused by toxic substances, but whether it can alleviate fluoride-induced toxicity in zebrafish embryos has not been elucidated. In this study, the intervention effects of Se-Met on developmental toxicity, oxidative stress and inflammation in zebrafish embryos exposed to fluoride were determined. Our results showed that fluoride accumulated in larvae and induced developmental toxicity in zebrafish embryos, caused oxidative damage and apoptosis, increased significantly the MPO and LZM activities and the levels of the inflammation-related genes IL-1B, IL-6, TNF-a, IL-10 and TGF-B. Moreover, fluoride significantly increased the levels of ERK2, JNK, p38 and p65 in MAPKs and NF-kB pathways. Se-Met-treatment alleviated the adverse effects induced by fluoride, and all of the above indicators induced by fluoride returned to near control levels with increasing concentrations and time. However, treatment with Se-Met-alone also markedly increased the levels of IL-6, TNF-a, IL-10, TGF-B, ERK2 and JNK. In short, these data demonstrated that Se-Met-could alleviate fluoride-induced toxicity in zebrafish embryos by restoring oxidative balance and rebuilding inflammation homeostasis, although low levels of Se-Met-alone had certain toxic effects on zebrafish embryos. Taken together, Se-Met-plays an important role in preventing toxic damage induced by fluoride in zebrafish embryos, although it has certain toxic effects.

Challenges of fluoride pollution in environment: Mechanisms and pathological significance of toxicity – A review.
Highlights Fluoride exposure induces mitochondrial function dysfunction. Fluoride exposure mediates organs injury involved in apoptosis and autophagy. Fluoride exposure induces inflammatory reaction. Fluoride exposure results changes in intestinal microbial abundance. Fluoride is an important trace element in the living body. A suitable amount of fluoride has a beneficial effect on
Chronic exposure to environmentally relevant concentration of fluoride alters Ogg1 and Rad51 expressions in mice: Involvement of epigenetic regulation.
Highlights Almost 200 million people all over the world are facing dreadful effects of fluoride. Mice were treated orally with environmentally relevant concentration of fluoride for 8 months. Fluoride treatment resulted into histopathology, oxidative stress response and transcriptional alterations of Ogg1 and Rad51. DNA fragmentations and apoptosis induction was
A review of molecular mechanisms linked to potential renal injury agents in tropical rural farming communities.
The chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu) is a global health concern primarily impacting tropical farming communities. Although the precise etiology is debated, CKDu is associated with environmental exposures including heat stress and chemical contaminants such as fluoride, heavy metals, and herbicide glyphosate. However, a comprehensive synthesis is lacking
Sodium fluoride promotes apoptosis by generation of reactive oxygen species in human lymphocytes
Fluoride generated the attention of toxicologists due to its deleterious effects at high concentrations in human populations suffering from fluorosis and in in vivo experimental models. Interest in its undesirable effects has resurfaced due to the awareness that this element interacts with cellular systems even at low doses. This study
Fluoride increases the susceptibility of developmental dysplasia of the hip via increasing capsular laxity triggered by cell apoptosis and oxidative stress in vivo and in vitro.
Highlights Fluoride does not cause DDH directly but increases its susceptibility by increasing hip capsular laxity. Hip laxity results from apoptosis occurring in capsular fibroblast after fluoride exposure. Fluoride-induced fibroblast apoptosis was triggered by oxidative stress via mitochondrial pathway. The etiology of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is multifactorial,

Fluoride & Oxidative Stress
A vast body of research demonstrates that fluoride exposure increases oxidative stress. Based on this research, it is believed that fluoride-induced oxidative stress is a key mechanism underlying the various toxic effects associated with fluoride exposure. It is also well established that fluoride's toxic effects can be ameliorated by exposure
Nutrient Deficiencies Enhance Fluoride Toxicity
It has been known since the 1930s that poor nutrition enhances the toxicity of fluoride. As discussed below, nutrient deficiencies have been specifically linked to increased susceptibility to fluoride-induced tooth damage (dental fluorosis), bone damage (osteomalacia), neurotoxicity (reduced intelligence), and mutagenicity. The nutrients of primary importance appear to be calcium,
