Methylmercury (MeHg) is the most toxic form of mercury which is bioaccumulated in the aquatic food chain. It has been shown that one of the main targets of MeHg toxicity is the brain, but there is little knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of its toxic effects. In this work we used a proteomics analysis to determine the changes in the brain proteome of juvenile beluga (Huso huso) exposed to dietary MeHg. The juvenile beluga were fed the diet containing 0.8 ppm MeHg for 70 days. Proteins of… CONTINUE READING
