In fishes, arsenic (As) is absorbed via the gills and is capable of causing disturbance to the antioxidant system. The objective of present study was to evaluate antioxidant responses after As exposure in gills of zebrafish (Danio rerio, Cyprinidae). Fish were exposed for 48 h to three concentration of As, including the highest As concentration allowed by current Brazilian legislation (10 microg As/L). A control group was exposed to tap water (pH 8.0; 26 degrees C; 7.20 mg O(2)/L). As exposure… CONTINUE READING
