To investigate the effects of heavy metals on susceptibility of fish to Listeriosis, normal zebrafish, Brachydanio rerio (Hamilton-Buchanan), were exposed to varying concentrations of zinc (0.05, 0.15, and 0.25 mg/liter) and copper (0.05, 0.10, and 0.15 mg/liter). During copper exposure, this heavy metal did not accumulate in zebrafish kidney. Unlike copper, a small amount of zinc accumulated in kidneys of fish exposed at 0.25 mg/liter. To estimate the effects of this heavy metal on listerial… CONTINUE READING
