Bivalves and especially mussels are very good indicators of marine and estuarine pollution, and so they have been widely used in biomonitoring programs all around the world. However, traditional single parameter biomarkers face the problem of high sensitivity to biotic and abiotic factors. In our study, digestive gland peroxisome-enriched fractions of Mytilus edulis (L., 1758) were analyzed by DIGE and MS. We identified several proteomic signatures associated with the exposure to several marine… CONTINUE READING
