Cadmium (Cd) is an important toxicant in estuarine and coastal environments that can strongly affect energy balance of aquatic organisms by increasing the organism's basal energy demand and reducing its aerobic capacity. Mechanisms of cadmium-induced increase in basal metabolic costs are not well understood and may involve elevated detoxification costs due to the synthesis of cellular protective proteins and glutathione. We studied the short-term effects of cadmium exposure (4 h) on protein and… CONTINUE READING
