Bivalve molluscs as a unique target group for nanoparticle toxicity.
Due to the continuous development and production of manufactured nanomaterials or nanoparticles (NPs), their uptake and effects in the aquatic biota represent a major concern. Estuarine and coastalExpand

Bacteria–hemocyte interactions and phagocytosis in marine bivalves
Marine bivalves (such as mussels, oysters, and clams) are widespread mollusks in coastal waters at different latitudes; due to their filter‐feeding habits, they accumulate large numbers of bacteriaExpand

Heavy metal effects on lipid peroxidation in the tissues of mytilus gallopro vincialis lam.
Abstract 1. The effects of heavy metals on lipid peroxidation in the gills and digestive gland of mussels exposed for six days to Cu 2+ , Cd 2+ or Zn 2+ (40 μg/l/animal) were investigated. 2. In theExpand
