Bivalve mollusks bioaccumulate toxins via ingestion of toxic dinoflagellates. In this study, Crassostrea gigas was used to investigate the effects related to Prorocentrum lima exposure. Oysters were fed with three diets Isochrysis galbana (2 × 10(6) cell mL(-1)) control treatment; algal mix of I. galbana (2 × 10(6)) and P. lima (3 × 10(3) cell mL(-1)); and P. lima alone (3 × 10(3) cell mL(-1)). Feeding behavior changes, histopathological alterations, and expression patterns changes of genes… CONTINUE READING
