7-Diethylamino-4-methylcoumarin (DEMC) is one of fluorescent whitening agents (FWAs) and DEMC-using solutions flow in river and ocean. In this study, we used wild type zebrafish to research about toxicity of DEMC in aquatic environment. High concentration DEMC-treated groups showed several development toxic effects - low survival, hatching and heart rates and high malformations rates. Moreover, DEMC alteration effect of gene expression which related oxidative stress, mitochondrial metabolism and apoptosis in zebrafish embryos.
