Genistein is a phytoestrogen that, due to its structural similarity with estrogen, can both mimic and antagonize estrogen effects. Early analysis proved that at high concentrations, genistein inhibits breast cancer cell proliferation, thereby suggesting an anticancer activity. Since then, many discoveries have identified the genistein mechanism of action, including cell cycle arrest, apoptosis induction, as well as angiogenesis, and metastasis inhibition.

The predicted future climate change can be expected to have an impact on the biogeochemical conditions in pit lakes that must be considered when modelling pit lake water quality. Climate change might e.g., affect temperature and precipitation patterns, which can influence other factors such as water balance, hydrology, limnology, and biogeochemical prediction

Graphical abstract
Nanomaterials including engineered nanomaterials and nanoplastics emerge as new pollutants to the ecosystem. In particular, studies on the adverse effects of nanomaterials on the brain are limited. Various animal models offer opportunities to evaluate neurological effects of nanomaterials. We summarize recent studies and key findings on neurotoxicological effects of nanomaterials, focusing on zebrafish.
