Bioaccumulation and biotransformation of 1-hydroxypyrene by the marine whelk Neptunea lyrata

TLDR
The novel biotransformation product, pyrenediol disulphate, accounted for the largest proportion of the 1-hydroxypyrene derivatives detected at body burdens below 200 ng, and at higher body burdens, bioaccumulation increased.

Bioaccumulation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by arctic and temperate benthic species

TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that data from temperate species could be used as a surrogate for Arctic species in risk assessment and that steady state was not likely to be reached in the 28‐d tests for all PAHs and organisms.

Sublethal toxicity and biotransformation of pyrene in Lumbriculus variegatus (Oligochaeta).

THE FATE AND BEHAVIOR OF POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS (PAHS) THROUGH FEEDING AND EXCRETION OF ANNELIDS

TLDR
The concentration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in sediment and excrements of annelids was measured by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and the movement of PAHs in the tidal flat was investigated and the reduction of the PAH concentrations may arise from chemical changes owing to microorganisms and/or enzymes in the excrement of M. sanguinea.

TLDR
PAHs have a toxicity for aquatic animals, indicating that the prevention of aquatic PAH pollution should be emphasized, and the correlation between PAHs and microplastics is described.

Study on the Degradation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the Excrement of Marphysa sanguinea

To clarify the degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the environment, we measured the PAH concentration in fecal pellets excreted by the annelid, Marphysa sanguinea, in a tidal

Identification of a novel CYP4V gene in the polychaete Perinereis aibuhitensis: transcriptional comparison with a CYP4B gene exposed to PAHs

TLDR
PAHs are associated with the induction of CYP 4V82 and CYP4BB4 expressions in P. aibuhitensis, which may have different efficiencies in the detoxification of PAHs.

Metabolism of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon fluoranthene by the polychaete Capitella capitata species I

TLDR
The results demonstrate that, in addition to their effects on sediment geochemical properties, infaunal polychaetes such as Capitella can enhance the degradation of sediment‐associated contaminants by directly metabolizing them.

Characterization of enzymes involved in biotransformation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in terrestrial isopods

TLDR
The findings indicate that terrestrial isopods have a high, noninducible capacity for biotransformation of PAHs and that the sulfate conjugation pathway is as important as the carbohydrate conjugations pathway.
