A variety of stresses, hormones, glucocorticoids and cytokines are known to induce metallothioneins (MTs) in animals. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of chemical stress induced by the dicarboximide fungicide procymidone on hepatic structure, MT content and antioxidative defences (catalase and glutathione reductase activities and glutathione content) in the common fish Rutilus rutilus. Catalase and glutathione reductase activities remained stable throughout the experiment… CONTINUE READING
