This study aims to investigate the use of metallothionein as a biomarker and its environmental impact on aquatic systems. According to the species' characteristics, the interactions of toxic elements with living organisms in marine water can lead to biomagnifications in the trophic chain or bioconcentration of what is in the water. In many aquatic organisms, the presence of metallothionein proteins was studied. The chemical analysis of these bioindicators establishes, therefore, a sensitive… CONTINUE READING
