From: Transgenerational effects of different sequential exposure to 2,2′,4,4′-tetra-brominated diphenyl ether (BDE47) and lead (Pb) on Caenorhabditis elegans

Fig. 5

The effects of individual Pb or BDE-47 (a) and their sequential exposure (b) on the body bending frequency (BBF) of Caenorhabditis elegans offspring (F1). The sequential exposure was an early exposure to BDE47 in the parent and a later exposure to Pb in the offspring (or vice versa). Blank column: exposure effects; shadow column: recovery effects. The average BBF was 6 bends/10 s in the control nematodes. *Significantly different from the control, p < 0.05. Data represent the means and standard error
