Physiological changes in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii after 1000 generations of selection of cadmium exposure at environmentally relevant concentrations.

Cadmium (Cd) is a nonessential and toxic trace element widely existing in waters through various anthropogenic activities such as mining and waste disposal. The physiological responses of aquatic organisms to long-term Cd exposure at environmentally relevant concentrations are still not well explored. In the present study, two strains of unicellular green… CONTINUE READING
