Metallothioneins in aquatic invertebrates: their role in metal detoxification and their use as biomarkers.
The literature on metallothioneins (MT) and metallothionein-like proteins (MTLP) in aquatic invertebrates is large and increasing, and yet inconsistencies and confusion remain, not least over theExpand

Behavioural and biochemical responses of two marine invertebrates Scrobicularia plana and Hediste diversicolor to copper oxide nanoparticles.
Engineered nano-sized Cu oxide particles are extensively used in diverse applications. Because aquatic environments are the ultimate "sink" for all contaminants, it is expected that nanoparticlesExpand

Bioaccessibility of essential and non-essential metals in commercial shellfish from Western Europe and Asia.
Maximum acceptable concentrations of metals in food - based on total concentrations - have been established in many countries. To improve risk assessment, it would be better to take into accountExpand

Influence of different essential and non-essential metals on MTLP levels in the Copepod Tigriopus brevicornis.
Because of their wide geographic distribution, position in the trophic chain, rapid turnover, huge biomass and role in ocean biogeochemical cycles, copepods are regarded as important marine testExpand

Mercury in pilot whales: possible limits to the detoxification process.
The ability of pilot whales (Globicephala melas) to concentrate cadmium and mercury is well established. The levels of these metals were generally higher than those encountered in other species ofExpand

Biomonitoring in a clean and a multi-contaminated estuary based on biomarkers and chemical analyses in the endobenthic worm Nereis diversicolor.
Relationships between biochemical and physiological biomarkers (acetylcholinesterase [AChE], catalase, and glutathione S-transferase [GST] activities, thiobarbituric acid reactive substances,Expand

Relationship between the lability of sediment-bound metals (Cd, Cu, Zn) and their bioaccumulation in benthic invertebrates
The present study has investigated metal contamination at nine sites (10 sampling stations) from the English Channel to the Mediterranean Sea, including low level and highly contaminated sediments.Expand

Comparative study of the patterns of bioaccumulation of essential (Cu, Zn) and non-essential (Cd, Pb) trace metals in various estuarine and coastal organisms
The patterns of accumulation of essential and non-essential trace metals have been studied comparatively in worms, molluscs, crustaceans, and fish exposed to short-term experimental contaminationsExpand

A mesocosm study of fate and effects of CuO nanoparticles on endobenthic species (Scrobicularia plana, Hediste diversicolor).
The fate and effects of CuO nanoparticles (CuO NPs) were examined in endobenthic species (Scrobicularia plana , Hediste diversicolor), under environmentally realistic conditions in outdoor mesocosmsExpand

Accumulation and Soluble Binding of Cadmium, Copper, and Zinc in the Polychaete Hediste diversicolor from Coastal Sites with Different Trace Metal Bioavailabilities
Bioaccumulation of cadmium, copper, and zinc was examined in common ragworms Hediste diversicolor from control (Bay of Somme, Blackwater) and metal-rich (Seine estuary, Boulogne harbor, RestronguetExpand
