Sea urchin embryos and larvae as biosensors for neurotoxicants.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Sea urchin embryos and larvae provide an inexpensive high-throughput system for determining developmental actions of neuropharmacologic agents or environmental neurotoxins in both applied and basic biologic contexts. The use of this system for the testing of chlorpyrifos, 1-nicotine, lipophilic amides of choline, and ritanserin is described in detail.
