Antioxidant and gene expression responses of Eisenia fetida following repeated exposure to BDE209 and Pb in a soil-earthworm system.

Abstract

This study first adopted repeated treatment model to investigate stress responses in earthworms (Eisenia fetida) following exposure to decabromodiphenyl ether (BDE209) and lead (Pb), which are the mainly co-existed contaminants at e-waste recycling sites. We evaluated the impacts of BDE209-Pb on antioxidative enzyme (superoxide dismutase, SOD; catalase, CAT… (More)
