Most biotransformation studies to date have concentrated on single-substance exposures. The biotransformation ability of organisms exposed to a single substance, however, may differ from that of organisms coexposed to binary or complex mixtures. The marine polychaete Capitella sp. I was exposed to either 31 microg/g dry weight sediment of benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) in a single-substance exposure or to a mixture of 31 and 28 microg/g dry weight sediment of BaP and fluoranthene (Flu), respectively… CONTINUE READING
