The differential expression of eight genes encoding stressor biomarkers was investigated by real-time quantitative PCR in liver tissue extracted from Javanese medaka after exposure to six heavy metals for 24 h. OjaCAT transcription increased in a dose-dependent manner during exposure to Cd, Cu, and Zn, but significantly decreased after exposure to Ag, Cr… CONTINUE READING
