Heavy metal inhibition of EROD activity in liver microsomes from the bass Dicentrarchus labrax exposed to organic xenobiotics: Role of GSH in the reduction of heavy metal effects
Abstract In vitro effects of Cu 2+ , Hg 2+ and of CH 3 Hg + on fish liver microsomal EROD activity have been studied. Liver microsomes from the fish Dicentrarchus labrax , treated withExpand

Reproductive cycle and heavy metals in the organs of red mullet, Mullus barbatus (L.), from the northwestern Mediterranean.
Concentrations of the heavy metals Cd, Cu, Fe Mn, V and Zn have been measured in the principal tissues of the red mullet, Mullus barbatus (L.), during a complete sexual cycle. By comparison of metalExpand

Evaluation of biomarkers in caged fishes and mussels to assess the quality of waters in a bay of the NW Mediterranean Sea.
Specimens of sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) were placed in cages for 1 month in spring and autumn at different locations in the Bay of Cannes (NW Mediterranean). Biochemical markers evaluated were:Expand

Metallothionein determination in the liver of the sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax treated with copper and B(a)P
Metallothioneins (MTs) were quantified in the liver of the sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax treated by intraperitoneal injection of copper (500 ng g−1), of benzo(a)-pyrene (20 μg g−1), and of copperExpand

Mixed-function oxygenase enzymes as tools for pollution monitoring: field studies on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
1. MFO enzyme activities were measured in microsomes from whole mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) comber livers (Serranus cabrilla), or Posidonia oceanica etiolated tissues, and PAH contents wereExpand

Changes with different diets in plasma enzymes (GOT, GPT, LDH, ALP) and plasma lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides) of sea-bass (Dicentrarchus labrax)
Abstract Artificial diets presently available for sea-bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) do not totally ensure good physiological conditions. Two diets, one with polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and oneExpand

The uptake, metabolism, and biological half-life of benzo[a]pyrene administered by force-feeding in sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax).
The kinetics of uptake and metabolism of benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) were studied in various tissues of a marine fish, the sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax), after intragastric administration of pelletsExpand
