The worldwide occurrence of cyanobacterial blooms makes it necessary to perform environmental risk assessment procedures to monitor the effects of microcystins (MCs) on fish. Oxidative stress biomarkers are valuable tools in this regard. In the present study, phytoplanktivorous bighead carp (Aristichthys nobilis) were injected intraperitoneally (i.p.) with extracted MCs (mainly MC-RR and -LR) at two doses, 400 and 1,000 μg kg−1 bw, and antioxidant responses of the liver as biomarkers of oxygen… CONTINUE READING
