Toxicity tests were conducted simulating a diesel oil spill in a tropical environment and juveniles of Prochilodus lineatus were exposed to the water-soluble fraction of diesel oil (WSD) for 6, 24, 96 h, and 15 days. The results showed the activation of biotransformation pathways for xenobiotics, through a time-dependent increase of liver GST activity. WSD(More)
Although gasoline is an important contaminant of aquatic ecosystems, information concerning the potential effects of this petroleum derivative on the DNA of aquatic biota is lacking. The present study aimed to evaluate the genotoxic and mutagenic effects of acute exposures (6, 24, and 96h) to gasoline water-soluble fraction (GWSF), diluted to 5%, on the(More)
Biochemical biomarkers in the Neotropical freshwater fish Prochilodus lineatus were evaluated following acute exposures to the water-soluble fraction of gasoline (WSFG). Fish were exposed to the WSFG diluted to 5% in water (WSFG group) or only to water (Control group) for 6, 24 and 96 h and the gills and liver were removed for the biochemical analyses. Fish(More)
The main goal of the present study was to investigate the effects of acute exposure to copper (Cu) using a Neotropical freshwater fish as sentinel species through multi biomarkers analysis at different biological levels. Juveniles of Prochilodus lineatus were kept under control condition (no Cu addition in the water) or exposed to environmentally relevant(More)
Juveniles of the freshwater fish Prochilodus lineatus were exposed to three concentrations of nickel (Ni): 25, 250 and 2500 µg L(-1) or water only for periods of 24 and 96 h to test for Ni bioaccumulation, its effects on antioxidant defenses and metallothioneins, and the occurrence of DNA damage. After exposure, the fish were sampled and tissue removed from(More)
The purpose of this work was to evaluate the effects of the water-soluble fraction of gasoline (WSFG) on the Neotropical freshwater fish Prochilodus lineatus. The WSFG was prepared by mixing gasoline in water (1:4) and animals were exposed for 6, 24 and 96h to 5% diluted WSFG or only to water. After exposure, blood was collected from the caudal vein and the(More)
