Quantitative immunochemical evaluation of fish metallothionein upon exposure to cadmium.


Efficient implementation of an environmental biomarker requires multi-annual comparability over a wide geographical range. The present study improved the comparability of a quantitative competitive metallothionein (MT) enzyme-linked-immuno-sorbent-assay (ELISA) in the sentinel fish Lithognathus mormyrus by introducing to the assay recombinant MT and beta… (More)
