The present study investigates the cytotoxic mechanisms induced by zinc (Zn) in haemocytes of mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis. Haemocytes play a key role in the immune defence of mussels. Micromolar concentration of Zn (50 microM) play an important role in the elevation of pHi and increase in Na+ influx in haemocytes. The observed effects were inhibited by(More)
Different environmental factors act as driving forces of diversity at different scales of analysis; and also the effect of one environmental factor changes as the scale of analysis changes. Most studies rely on multiple regression models, and such models tend to mix-up the effect of all factors and assume that factors effects are additive. We believe that(More)
