Toxicity in C. elegans

Hello ,

Can anyone suggest me any drug like Paraquat which have a toxic effect on the mitochondria in C. elegans?

Like paraquat acts upon complex I of mitochondria, any other drug acting upon different component?


Proton uncouplers (e.g., FCCP) and azide have been shown to produce toxicity.

Thanks for your reply.

Can you please tell, the optimum concentration which is used for Sodium Azide assay for checking worm lethality ?

I don’t know, but I bet a PubMed search would be informative.
