Three populations of brown trout (Salmo trutta) exposed to different metal levels in their natural environments, were studied with respect to antioxidants metallothionein (MT), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) as well as for corresponding mRNA levels. In addition, mRNA levels were studied for glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and glutathione(More)
We studied how transcript levels of metallothionein (MT), Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPX) and glutathione reductase (GR) as well as functional protein levels of MT, SOD and CAT in brown trout tissues changed during a 15-days waterborne exposure to Cd and Zn. Trout from a river with low levels of metals (the(More)
In situ deployments of diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) can provide direct information on complex dissociation rates in natural waters. Recent advances in understanding the dynamics of the interactions of metal complexes within DGT devices have highlighted the characteristics of the binding layer, but there are few data to complement these(More)
The effect of metal binding to the diffusion layer of diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) on measurements of time-integrated concentrations (CDGT) was studied experimentally and using a numerical model. Cationic divalent Cu and Cu-fulvic complexes bind to sites in the filter membrane and polyacrylamide (APA) gel, together comprising the diffusion layer(More)
Performing ecotoxicity tests on poorly water soluble substances and in particular metals, metalloids, and metal oxides such as silica fume, can be problematic. Such substances may not be directly toxic to aquatic organisms but often have high concentrations of impurities present, due to production processes, which may result in ecotoxicological effects.(More)
