Contamination of freshwater environments by estrogenic compounds has led to concern over potential impacts on invertebrate species. The uptake of the environmental estrogen 17beta-estradiol (E2) by the freshwater bivalve Dreissena polymorpha and the nature of estrogenic substances in tissues of D. polymorpha mussels collected from four freshwater sites were investigated. Exposure of mussels to [(14)C]-E2 (7.5 ngl(-1), 13 days) revealed that the estrogen bioconcentrated 840+/-58 (males) and 580… CONTINUE READING
