Increasing evidence suggests that oxidative stress may play a significant role in causing microcystin (MCs) toxicity not only in mammals, but also in fish. MCs are a family of cyclic peptide toxins produced by some species of freshwater cyanobacteria (blue-green algae). Among the microcystins, MC-LR is the most extensively studied. In the present study the differential response of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and glutathione… CONTINUE READING
