The use of biomarkers to assess the impact of pollution in coastal environments of the Iberian Peninsula: a practical approach.
Metal handling strategies in molluscs
The concentration and distribution of metals in molluscan tissues, as in any other organism, is highly dependent on the biochemical processes of metal metabolism occurring within cells, and a wide range of behaviour in terms of uptake, detoxification and storage is manifested — the major components of metal bioaccumulation.

Findings show that filter-feeding organisms are significant targets for nanoparticle exposure and need to be included when evaluating the overall toxicological impact of nanoparticles in the aquatic environment.
Influence of metal exposure on metallothionein synthesis and lipid peroxidation in two bivalve mollusks: the oyster (Crassostrea gigas) and the mussel (Mytilus edulis)
Response of antioxidant systems to copper in the gills of the clam Ruditapes decussatus.
Application of an integrated biomarker response index (IBR) to assess temporal variation of environmental quality in two Portuguese aquatic systems
Genotoxicity of copper oxide and silver nanoparticles in the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis.
Accumulation and toxicity of copper oxide nanoparticles in the digestive gland of Mytilus galloprovincialis.
Detection of emerging contaminants (UV filters, UV stabilizers and musks) in marine mussels from Portuguese coast by QuEChERS extraction and GC-MS/MS.

Biomarkers as lipid peroxidation, metallothionein and δ-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase showed differences between the estuaries, suggesting disturbances in the specific cell mechanisms due to the presence of multiple xenobiotics in the contaminated system.
