The aim of this work was to study short-term effects on antioxidant enzyme activities and long-term genotoxic and carcinogenic potential of CuO nanoparticles (NPs) in comparison to bulk CuO and ionic copper in mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis after 21 days exposure to 10 μg Cu L(-1). Then, mussels were kept for up to 122 days in clean water. Cu accumulation depended on the form of the metal and on the exposure time. CuO NPs were localized in lysosomes of digestive cells, as confirmed by TEM… CONTINUE READING
