  author={Bj{\"o}rne Olsson and Brian Patrick Bradley and Michael Gilek and Olof Reimer and Jenn L. Shepard and Michael Tedengren},
Stress responses in blue mussels (Mytilus edulis. L.) exposed to rganic pollutants were measured using several physiological measures and as changes in protein expression. Blue mussels from the Baltic Sea were exposed for 6 days in a flow-through system to two fractions of extracted Baltic sediments (containing primarily PAHs or PCBs) from one industrially impacted site and one off-shore site. Exposure to Aroclor1248 (a commercial PCB mixture) was included as a reference treatment… CONTINUE READING
