Response to alkyltins of two Na+-dependent ATPase activities in Tapes philippinarum and Mytilus galloprovincialis.


Organotin effects on the Na-dependent ATPases involved in ionic regulation of aquatic animals are poorly known, in spite of the largely documented contamination of seafood, especially bivalve molluscs. This study deals with the in vitro effect of TBT on the Na,K-ATPase and the ouabain-insensitive Na-ATPase in gill and mantle microsomes from the cultured… (More)
