A series of specific toxicological effects including bioaccumulation of the pollutant, histological changes and influences on cholinesterase (ChE) activities were examined in the adult Japanese medaka after the exposure to graded sublethal concentrations (40, 20, 10, 5, 2.5ngHg/mL) of methylmercury chloride (MMC). Methylmercury (MeHg) contents in the exposed medaka tissues ranged from 0.03 to 64.4μgHg/g (wet weight, w.w.). High concentrations of MeHg were accumulated in the liver and brain… CONTINUE READING
