The bioaccumulation of estrone by Daphnia magna was determined. Direct uptake via the aqueous medium occurred within the first 16 h. A bioconcentration factor of 228 was established over all temporal periods. Ingestion via Chlorella vulgaris gave a partitioning factor of 24, which may approximate to a biomagnification factor assuming steady state conditions. These preliminary results indicate that the partitioning to Daphnia magna via the food source, C. vulgaris is less significant than… Expand

Bioaccumulation and uptake routes of perfluoroalkyl acids in Daphnia magna.
TLDR
This study suggested that the bioaccumulation of PFAs in D. magna is mainly controlled by their partition between organisms and water; further research should be conducted to study the intrinsic mechanisms, especially the roles of protein and lipid in organisms. Expand
Life stage- dependent bioconcentration of a nonylphenol isomer in Daphnia magna.
TLDR
It was shown that it is not possible to describe the bioconcentration by measuring the total radioactivity and discrimination between the two mechanisms was achieved using radiolabeled substances and a pseudo two-compartment model to describe metabolism and elimination by two rate constants which afterwards can be compared between different substances. Expand
Aqueous and dietary bioaccumulation of antibiotic tetracycline in D. magna and its multigenerational transfer.
TLDR
The ability of tetracycline to bioaccumulate through aqueous and dietary routes in an aquatic organism, the freshwater crustacean Daphnia magna, and theBioaccumulation tendency showed a biphasic change in multigenerational exposure. Expand
Toxicokinetic modeling of octylphenol bioconcentration in Chlorella vulgaris and its trophic transfer to Daphnia magna.
TLDR
Bioconcentration of 4-tert-Octylphenol in freshwater algae Chlorella vulgaris and bioaccumulation of OP in Daphnia magna were investigated by considering both aqueous and dietary exposures, suggesting that OP biomagnification was unlikely in the C. vulgaris-D. Expand
Evaluation of the potential for trophic transfer of roxithromycin along an experimental food chain
TLDR
The trophic transfer of the macrolide antibiotic roxithromycin (ROX) in an experimental aquatic food chain involving the green algae Scenedesmus obliquus, the water flea Daphnia magna and the crucian carp is suggested to be a matter of concern for ecological risk assessments of pharmaceutical substances in aquatic food webs. Expand
Workshop on rotifers in ecotoxicology
TLDR
Besides their usefulness in these emerging fields of aquatic ecotoxicology, it was emphasized that research with rotifers on basic issues like, e.g., toxicant interference with predation, competition, or interspecific and interclonal variation in Ecotoxicological tests is still needed. Expand
Uptake and elimination, and effect of estrogen-like contaminants in estuarine copepods: an experimental study
TLDR
The results demonstrate that E. affinis has the potency to accumulate but also to eliminate endocrine disrupters which suggests a non-negligible role of this copepod species in the biogeochemical cycles of these contaminants in estuarine ecosystems. Expand
Acute and chronic effects of testosterone and 4-hydroxyandrostenedione to the crustacean Daphnia magna.
TLDR
The reproductive impairment of the daphnids is likely to occur at environmental levels as an ultimate response to long-term exposure to testosterone and 4-hydroxyandrostenedione. Expand
Bioaccumulation potential of CPs in aquatic organisms: Uptake and depuration in Daphnia magna.
TLDR
The results show that SC, MC and LCCPs are (very)bioaccumulative in aquatic organisms, and these data can aid the ongoing policy discussion concerning the environmental risk posed by CPs. Expand
Bioaccumulation of metals in calanoid copepods by oral intake
We demonstrated that oral intake of water by two calanoid copepods, Pseudodiaptomus annandalei and Eurytemora affinis takes place and has implications for their ecotoxicology. In the firstExpand

TLDR
Trophic-level differences in bioconcentration are due largely to increased lipid content and decreased chemical elimination efficiency of organisms occupying increasing trophic levels, which can be misconstrued as biomagnification. Expand
Bioaccumulation Kinetics: Experimental Data and Modelling
Organic micropollutants which tend to accumulate in aquatic organisms can be taken up from water, food or sediments. For most contaminants which bioaccumulate, uptake from water is the predominantExpand
Biotransformation and Bioconcentration of Steroid Estrogens by Chlorella vulgaris
TLDR
All of the tested estrogens exhibited a degree of partitioning to C. vulgaris; however, the concentrations of estriol, hydroxyestrone, ethinylestradiol, and estradiol valerate were always below the quantification limits. Expand
Prediction of the bioaccumulation factors and body burden of natural and synthetic estrogens in aquatic organisms in the river systems.
TLDR
An initial prediction of the bioaccumulation factors and body burden of the steroid estrogens, estrone, estradiol, estriol and ethinylestradiol in a range of aquatic organisms in river systems using a food-web model finds that these factors were sensitive to the metabolic rates of the estrogens in the free living organisms, while the concentration of estrogen in sediment was a significant factor in determining these values in benthic invertebrates.

Identification of Estrogenic Chemicals in STW Effluent. 2. In Vivo Responses in Trout and Roach
TLDR
The occurrence of certain natural and synthetic steroidal estrogens in the final effluent from STW has been demonstrated and the response of adult male and female roach following exposure to 17β-estradiol was compared to the response to the alkylphenolic xenoestrogen. Expand
Degradation of 17β-Estradiol and its Metabolites by Sewage Bacteria
TLDR
Results in this study suggest that the risk of extensive accumulation of natural estrogens normally found in sewage effluents in the environment is small, due to their ready biodegradation. Expand
Identification of Estrogenic Chemicals in STW Effluent. 1. Chemical Fractionation and in Vitro Biological Screening
A fractionation system, combined with an in vitro assay for detecting estrogenic activity, was developed in order to isolate and identify the major estrogenic chemicals present in sevenExpand
Binding of Waterborne Steroid Estrogens to Solid Phases in River and Estuarine Systems
Natural and synthetic steroid estrogens have been detected in sewage treatment work effluents discharged into rivers. An understanding of the partitioning of these estrogens between water andExpand
Modelling the bioconcentration of hydrophobic organic chemicals in aquatic organisms
TLDR
Values of uptake and elimination rate constants, k 1 and k 2, and thereafter the bioconcentration factor, BCF, can be obtained, depending only on the time course for uptake of HOCs by the organism, under the proposed model. Expand
Endocrine disruptors in sewage treatment plants, receiving river waters, and sediments: integration of chemical analysis and biological effects on feral carp.
TLDR
Vitellogenin fluctuated among sites and sampling periods, but it was found to be increased in male carp collected downstream of the main STP, and a correlation between endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) in water and sediment and plasma VTG concentration inmale carp was observed. Expand
