The potential of the trace elements Ag, As, Cd, Hg, Mo, Ni, Pb, Se, and Zn to inhibit the phagocytosis response of extruded coelomocytes of different worm species was tested. We used flow cytometry to evaluate the sensitivity of cell viability and phagocytic potential for Eisenia fetida, Lumbricus terrestris, Aporrectodea turgida, and Tubifex tubifex. Extruded cells were exposed 18 h in vitro to concentrations ranging from 10(-9) to 10(-4) M. Mercury was the most potent immunotoxic element… CONTINUE READING
