Tissue puncture techniques using microelectrodes for various measurements have been criticized for producing undetermined degrees of tissue damage. Therefore, a method permitting routine identification of puncture tracks was developed to determine local microelectrode-induced injury. Rabbits were anesthetized and the femoral arteries surgically exposed. A(More)
Bioconcentration of [14C]benzo[a]pyrene and effects of unlabeled benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) accumulation on the routine oxygen consumption of embryonic grunion (Leuresthes tenuis) were studied. At Day 15, bioconcentration factors over dissolved BaP levels ranged from 249 to 466. Weight-specific respiration rates at Days 14-15 were significantly increased (P less(More)
