  • We investigated activities of glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), glutathione reductase (GR), and the phase II biotransformation enzyme glutathione-S-transferase (GST) in the foot of three freshwater mussel species: Unio picto- rum (Up), Unio tumidus (Ut),and Sinanodonta woodiana (Sw) from the Sava River. Specific and total GSH-Px activi- ty was lower in Swthan in Upand Ut.Total GR activity was higher in Up than in Sw. Specific GST activity was high- er in Up than in Ut. Total GST activity was… CONTINUE READING
