Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) are ubiquitous microcontaminants. Because of both lipid solubility and the absence of adequate metabolic pathway in the organisms, PCB tend to bioaccumulate along the trophic chains. PCB may affect the endocrine, nervous and immune systems; the biological activities are related to chemical structure, particular concern has arisen about a group of 'dioxin-like' congeners. Feed is the major way of PCB exposure of farm animals. PCB bioaccumulation is related to the… CONTINUE READING
