Metal handling strategies in molluscs
TLDR
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.
Effects of copper nanoparticles exposure in the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis.
TLDR
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.
Biomarkers of exposure to metal contamination and lipid peroxidation in the benthic fish Cathorops spixii from two estuaries in South America, Brazil
TLDR
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.
