We evaluated whether quantitation of mRNA molecules of key genes is a reliable biomonitoring end-point. We examined the Mus spretus expression levels of 19 transcripts encoding different cytochrome-P450s and glutathione transferases. Mice dwelling at the Doñana Biological Reserve were compared to those from an industrial settlement (PS). Metal biomonitoring(More)
Element load, conventional biomarkers and altered protein expression profiles were studied in Carcinus maenas crabs, to assess contamination of "Domingo Rubio" stream, an aquatic ecosystem that receives pyritic metals, industrial contaminants, and pesticides. Lower antioxidative activities - glucose-6-phosphate and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenases,(More)
The aim of this work was to study the effect of Se(+VI) on viability, cell morphology, and selenomethionine accumulation of the green alga Chlorella sorokiniana grown in batch cultures. Culture exposed to sublethal Se concentrations of 40 mg · L(-1) (212 μM) decreased growth rates for about 25% compared to control. A selenate EC50 value of 45 mg · L(-1)(More)
Bioindicators can reflect the effects of pollutants on their metabolism, being widely used to assess environmental stress. In this sense, the crab Procambarus clarkii has been previously proposed to monitor the contamination in Doñana National Park (southwest Spain) using conventional biomarkers. In this work, a metabolomic approach based on direct infusion(More)
