In 1999, the concentrations of 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), the total PAH and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were measured in sea water, sediment and mussels collected along the coast of Izmit Bay, the most important bay of the Marmara Sea. The total-PAH concentrations, measured by Spectrofluorometry were in the range of 1.16-13.68 microg/l(More)
As is well known, a powerful earthquake along the North Anatolian Fault struck the eastern part of the Marmara region on August 17, 1999. Izmit Bay, which is known as one of the most polluted sites of Turkey, was also affected by the quake and the subsequent refinery fire. The measurements performed just before and after the earthquake showed that T-PAH(More)
Juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) were injected intraperitoneally with either corn oil or 5 mg/kg benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) dissolved in corn oil and sampled I and 3 days after injection. After 1 day, no elevation of 7-ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) activity was observed, however bile metabolites (BaP-7,8 dihydrodiol representing 70% of the total(More)
As a part of Marmara Sea, Izmit Bay (Turkey) has been one of the most polluted sites in the region for the last 25 years. On 17 August 1999, a powerful earthquake along the North Anatolian Fault struck the eastern part of the Marmara region including Izmit Bay. The earthquake destroyed many coastal cities. The Bay was also affected by the quake and(More)
Aromatic DNA adducts in the livers and blood of grey mullet (Mugil sp.) have been monitored between 1993 and 1996 by the isolation of DNA and the postlabeling of the DNA adducts with 32P. The grey mullet were sampled from three well-characterised harbours, two in the northeastern Mediterranean and one in the northeastern Black Sea near Trabzon close to a(More)
The toxicity of the polyaromatic hydrocarbon pyrene to Mytilus edulis and Mytilus galloprovincialis was investigated in experiments conducted in the United Kingdom for M. edulis and in Turkey for M. galloprovincialis. Experimental conditions of temperature and salinity were chosen to be appropriate to the ambient conditions in which the mussels typically(More)
Turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) and mussel (Mytilus edulis) microsomes were incubated with DNA to examine if microsomal in vitro metabolism of BaP could result in DNA adducts detected by 32P-postlabelling. Turbot DNA was incubated with benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), NADPH and microsomal activating systems prepared from either livers of unexposed turbot, turbot exposed(More)
