Abstract

Introduction: Nanotechnology investigates materials at nanoscale level (0.1-100 nm in diameter). There are many commercially nanoproducts such as silver, silicon, titanium, zinc, and gold. They are used in a variety of applications and released to the environment. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is one of the most commonly used nanoparticles (NP). In this study, the ultrastructural effects of TiO2-NP on zebrafish testis tissue were evaluated.
