Studies on the Toxic Effects of La3+ to Tetrahymena thermophila by Microcalorimetry


The toxic effects of La3+ on Tetrahymena thermophila have been studied by microcalorimetry at 28°C. The metabolic rate constant (r) and peak time were linked to the concentration of La3+. The changes of metabolic rate constant indicated that low-concentration La3+ (0–75 mg/L) had no significant effects on the metabolism of Tetrahymena cells but high… (More)
