Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) burden of mussels (Mytilus sp.) in different marine environments in relation with sediment PAH contamination, and bioavailability
Abstract Sediments and mussels (Mytilus edulis, Mytilus galloprovincialis) were sampled in different European coastal environments (Germany, France, Spain) and analysed for their polycyclic aromaticExpand
Safety Considerations of DNA in Food
Recombinant DNA techniques are capable of introducing genetic changes into food organisms that are more predictable than those introduced through conventional breeding techniques. This reviewExpand
Cholinesterase activity as potential biomarker in two bivalves.
In this study, the pH, temperature and substrate specificity for cholinesterases (ChE) assay in two bivalves was optimized: the Spanish mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis and the Asiatic clam CorbiculaExpand
One-year monitoring survey of organic compounds (PAHs, PCBs, TBT), heavy metals and biomarkers in blue mussels from the Arcachon Bay, France.
Marine mussels Mytilus sp. were transplanted on a monthly basis in cages over one year to oyster farms and harbours in the Arcachon Bay (France) in order to assess the water quality of the bay.Expand
Biochemical responses of the earthworm Eisenia fetida andrei exposed to contaminated artificial soil: effects of benzo(a)pyrene
Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of carbaryl, at different concentrations and exposure times, on the biochemical responses of the earthworm, Eisenia fetida andrei (E.Expand
Glutathione, Glutathione-Related Enzymes, and Catalase Activities in the Earthworm Eisenia fetida andrei
Abstract. The aim of this work was to provide basic data on the antioxidant defences in the annelid Eisenia fetida andrei (E. f. a.). Methods for measurement of three antioxidant enzymes—catalaseExpand
Cholinesterases from the marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis Lmk. and M. edulis L. from the freshwater bivalve Corbicula fluminea Müller.
In order to improve the molecular basis for the use of bivalve cholinesterases as a reliable biomarker for aquatic pollution, the polymorphism and characterization of these enzymes in Mytilus edulis,Expand
Accumulation kinetics of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons adsorbed to sediment by the mollusk Corbicula fluminea.
The accumulation kinetics in the freshwater mollusk Corbicula fluminea were measured for sediment-associated selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), namely, anthracene (Ant), phenanthreneExpand
Dietary intake of non-dioxin-like PCBs (NDL-PCBs) in France, impact of maximum levels in some foodstuffs.
NDL-PCBs dietary intake was recently estimated in France by combining results of food products contamination by NDL-PCBs (1665 samples collected through 2002-2006 national monitoring programs) withExpand
