Genetic damage induced by trophic doses of lead in the neotropical fish Hoplias malabaricus (Characiformes, Erythrinidae) as revealed by the comet assay and chromosomal aberrations
The effects of clastogenic or mutagenic agents have rarely been studied in neotropical fish species exposed to contaminated water. In this study, the genetic damage caused by lead in the widelyExpand

Use of hepatocytes from Hoplias malabaricus to characterize the toxicity of a complex mixture of lipophilic halogenated compounds.
Organisms are continuously exposed to a plethora of anthropogenic toxicants daily released to the environment. In the present study, the effects of a mixture of halogenated organic compounds (HOCs)Expand
