Responses of hepatic metallothioneins and apoptotic activity in Carassius auratus gibelio witness a release of cobalt and zinc from waterborne nanoscale composites.


The main goal of this study was to evaluate the ability of fish Carassius auratus tissues to release cobalt (Co) and zinc (Zn) cations present in the applied Co- and Zn-containing nanoscale composites (NCs). Male fish was subjected to 14day long action of Co- and Zn-NCs, as well as of Co(2+) and Zn(2+) or polymeric substance (PS) used for the NC preparation… (More)
