Accumulation of zinc from diet and its release in common carp
Exposure to a high Zn diet induced some metallothionein-like substance in the digestive tract tissue and the hepatopancreas of common carp, but the amount was very low when compared with the amount of Zn accumulated in the nuclei/cell debris fraction.
