Zinc homeostasis was studied at the tissue and gill subcellular levels in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) following waterborne and dietary exposures, singly and in combination. Juvenile rainbow trout were exposed to 150 or 600microgl(-1) waterborne Zn, 1500 or 4500microgg(-1) dietary Zn, and a combination of 150microgl(-1) waterborne and 1500microgg(-1) dietary Zn for 40 days. Accumulation of Zn in tissues and gill subcellular fractions was measured. At the tissue level, the carcass acted… CONTINUE READING
