In Vivo Cytotoxicity Assessment of Thiram : Physiological and Biochemical Changes in Paramecium sp

Abstract

The freshwater protozoan ciliate Paramecium sp. was used in order to assess the potential cytotoxic effects of Thiram, a dithiocarbamates fungicide. To estimate the impact of this fungicide, cells were exposed to three concentrations (0.001, 0.002 and 0.003 mg/l) for 4 days. The respiratory metabolism and the antioxidant defence biomarkers (Catalase and… (More)
