Climate change and anthropogenic pollution are of increasing concern in remote areas such as Antarctica. The evolutionary adaptation of Antarctic notothenioid fish to the cold and stable Southern Ocean led to a low plasticity of their physiological functions, what may limit their capacity to deal with altered temperature regimes and pollution in the Antarctic environment. Using a biochemical approach, we aimed to assess the hepatic biotransformation capacities of Antarctic fish species by… Expand
Expression of common biomarkers in Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) exposed to an organochlorine contaminant
TLDR
Findings do not provide evidence for an activated detoxification response to this compound via the tested biochemical pathways in Antarctic krill, but these first exploratory findings present a valuable contribution to a critical knowledge gap in polar ecotoxicology, namely the comparative sensitivity of polar organisms relative to temperate and tropical counterparts. Expand
Persistent organic pollutants in red- and white-blooded High-Antarctic notothenioid fish from the remote Weddell Sea.
TLDR
The present findings suggest that fishes of High-Antarctic waters, although this area is more remote and less influenced by local human activities, do not show lower POP body burdens than fishes from Low-AntARctic waters. Expand
Expression of aryl hydrocarbon receptor-regulated genes and superoxide dismutase in the Antarctic eelpout Pachycara brachycephalum exposed to benzo[a]pyrene.
TLDR
The data suggest that P. brachycephalum possesses the potential to up-regulate xenobiotic biotransformation pathways, at least at the gene expression level, and the time course of the AhR and CYP1A response points to an efficient but slow xenobiotics metabolism. Expand
Persistent organic pollutants in tissues of the white-blooded Antarctic fish Champsocephalus gunnari and Chaenocephalus aceratus.
TLDR
There was no general species-specific accumulation pattern of the different toxicant classes between the two icefish, and the expected link between contaminant burdens of C. aceratus and C.gunnari and their ecological traits was only weakly supported. Expand
Endocrine and reproductive endpoints of Notothenia rossii and N. coriiceps: A baseline study for ecotoxicological monitoring in Antarctic waters.
TLDR
This is the first report of mucus vitellogenin-like detection as a non-invasive biomarker of endocrine disruption in notothenioid males and settles a baseline for future studies of reproductive biology and endocrine disruptions in Antarctic fishes. Expand
Fullerene inhibits benzo(a)pyrene Efflux from Cyprinus carpio hepatocytes by affecting cell membrane fluidity and P-glycoprotein expression.
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence of nC60 toxicity to P-gp functionality in fish and illustrates the possible mechanism of the suppressed P- gp efflux ability for BaP. Expand
Applicability of in vitro methods in evaluating the biotransformation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in fish: Advances and challenges.
TLDR
The present review provides up-to-date information on the use of in vitro fish models in the evaluation of PAH biotransformation, common biomarkers, and challenges encountered when developing and applying such systems. Expand
In vitro-in vivo and cross-life stage extrapolation of uptake and biotransformation of benzo[a]pyrene in the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas).
TLDR
Modelling suggested that biotransformation of B[a]P can be successfully implemented into in silico models to accurately predict life stage-specific abundances of B-P metabolites in either whole-body larvae or the bile of adult fish. Expand
Metabolic responses in Antarctic Nototheniidae brains subjected to thermal stress
TLDR
The results indicate tissue-specific patterns and species-specific responses to this stress, as well as the importance of the actions of the glutathione-dependent antioxidant enzymes and catalase in N. rossii and N. coriiceps. Expand
Arctic marine fish 'biotransformation toxicity' model for ecological risk assessment.
TLDR
The impacts of sea ice, extreme light regime, various polar region-specific physiological characteristics in polar cod and their effects on xenobiotic distribution and metabolism are studied and a Bayesian belief network is used to model individual fish toxicity. Expand

Interactions between metabolism of trace metals and xenobiotic agonists of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in the antarctic fish Trematomus bernacchii: environmental perspectives.
TLDR
Elevated natural levels of cadmium in Antarctic organisms from Terra Nova Bay can limit biotransformation capability of polycyclic (halogenated) hydrocarbons, thus influencing the bioaccumulation and biological effects of these chemicals in key sentinel species. Expand
Induction of cytochrome P4501A (CYP1A) in Trematomus bernacchii as an indicator of environmental pollution in Antarctica: assessment by quantitative RT-PCR
TLDR
The extent of CYP1A induction correlated positively with biliary FACs levels, indicating the potential of quantitative competitive RT-PCR as a sensitive molecular approach to pollution impact assessment, and using the Antarctic fish Trematomus bernacchii as an indicator species for this purpose.

ANTARCTIC FISH METABOLIC RESPONSES AS POTENTIAL BIOMARKERS OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
TLDR
The tissue distribution and the isoforms distribution, along with its control via upregulation and downregulation of the arginase enzymes, nitric oxide synthase and ornithina decarboxylase in Antarctic fishes are potential biomarkers for environmental change. Expand
Comparative metabolism and excretion of benzo(a)pyrene in 2 species of ictalurid catfish.
TLDR
Overall, these results indicated that brown bullhead preferentially formed BaP-7,8-dihydrodiol, a precursor to the DNA-reactive BaP -7, 8- dihyd Rodiol-9,10-epoxide (BPDE), which may be linked to the increased PAH susceptibility in this species. Expand
Tissue-Specific Metabolism of Benzo[a]pyrene in Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss): A Comparison between the Liver and Immune Organs
TLDR
PAHs, like BaP, are distributed into immune organs of fish and provide the first evidence that immune organs possess inducible PAH metabolism leading to in situ production of potentially immunotoxic PAH metabolites. Expand

TLDR
Use of the same approach showed that fish metabolise pentachlorophenol (PCP) and benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) faster than certain aquatic invertebrates, viz. molluscan species and crustacean species, and the higher rate of biotransformation of BaP in fish is consistent with higher levels of total cytochrome P450 and inducible cy tochrome P4501A (CYP1A) activity.

TLDR
It appears that zCYP1A may play an important role in BaP-induced carcinogenesis in the zebrafish model by catalyzing the sequential formation of the ultimate diol epoxide carcinogenic metabolite of BaP. Expand
