The aim of this study is to investigate the induction of zebrafish metallothionein (zMT) gene expression following the administration of different metal ions using in vivo and in vitro models. The zebrafish embryo-larvae were used for the in vivo study, and MT gene expression was studied during the development from fertilization (8hpf) to embryo-larval stage using real-time PCR. The LC50 values and zMT mRNA levels were also measured in embryo-larvae exposed to various metal ions. The general… CONTINUE READING
