While copper (Cu) is considered to be an essential trace element for many organisms, overexposure to this metal can induce a wide spectrum of effects including DNA damage. Given that Cu is a highly relevant contaminant in the marine environment, we aimed to evaluate the induction of DNA strand breaks (using the comet assay) in haemocytes and concurrently also determined biological responses at higher levels of biological organisation in bivalve molluscs, Mytilus edulis, following exposure for 5… CONTINUE READING
