Ex situ Effects of Chlorpyrifos on the Lysosomal Membrane Stability and Respiration Rate in Zebra Mussel , Dreissena polymorpha ( Pallas , 1771 )

The present study examines the lysosomal membrane stability in haemocytes of Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) by applying the neutral red retention assay (NRRA) as well as the respiration rate and survival under acute pesticide exposure. The mussels were treated with different concentrations of chlorpyrifos in laboratory conditions for a total acute… CONTINUE READING
