Abstract: Nanoparticles (NPs) have revolutionized the society being a part of day to day products. However, its potential to act as an adverse entity was greatly ignored. Recently, the toxic effect of nanoparticles on biological system is checked using various model organisms. Among various models fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster has turned up as a promising model since numerous diseased genes and signalling pathways are similar to that of a human being. Effects of many NPs were tested using Drosophila, and the results suggest the deleterious effect of NPs on the various physiological and behavioural system. NPs cause defects in genetic, molecular, phenotypic, developmental as well as behavioral level in Drosophila. The current study summerizes the behavioural teratogenic effect of NPs tested using Drosophila model.
