Stress proteins have been shown to provide information on the biological impact of toxic chemicals to organisms and to predict adverse consequences of that exposure. In this study we have examined the accumulation to two major stress proteins, hsp60 and hsp70, in banked samples to determine if they accumulate at high levels in organisms exposed to contaminants in their environment. We found that relative to laboratory controls, stress proteins concentrations were elevated in mussels and fish… CONTINUE READING
