Metallothioneins (MTs), metal-inducible proteins, are crucial proteins for the regulation of essential metals, and are transcriptionally induced in all organisms by certain heavy metals, oxidative stress and inflammation. The gills represent an organ of uptake and loss of metals in which different mechanisms are present controlling the functions directly involved in the maintenance of homeostasis. In this study, the morphological and histomorphological aspects of branchial epithelium in Mytilus… CONTINUE READING
