The present study investigated the signal transduction molecule cAMP as a biomarker of exposure to cadmium in mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis. Mussels were exposed to 10 and 100 microg/l cadmium for 3, 6, and 9 days, and cAMP content in three tissues-digestive gland, gills and mantle-gonad complex-was estimated. The results showed significantly increased levels of cAMP in all tissues at all time points tested. In support of our results, cAMP levels were positively correlated with the… CONTINUE READING
