A fibroblastic cell line derived from gill tissue (designated BG/G) and an epithelioid cell line derived from fin tissue (designed BG/F) of bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) were used as the bioindicators in toxicity experiments. The neutral red in vitro cytotoxicity assay served as the endpoint. In both cell lines the sequence of observed cytotoxicity was arsenite greater than arsenate greater than selenite greater than selenate, with each cell type exhibiting comparable ranking of… CONTINUE READING
