Effects of a pre-incubation period on the photoinduced toxicity of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons to the luminescent bacterium Vibrio fischeri.


Irradiation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in aqueous solution with simulated solar radiation (SSR; a light source with a visible light: UV-A:UV-B ratio similar to that of sunlight) can greatly enhance their toxicity. Two microbial toxicity tests with Vibrio fischeri were used to investigate the effect of composition of the growth medium and pre… (More)
