Methylmercury (CH3Hg(II)) was measured in various tissues and whole body of sheepshead minnows; Cyprinodon variegatus, following exposure to 100 ng/L methylmercury chloride (CH3HgCl) alone or in combination with one of the organic compounds cysteine (CH3Hg-Cys), thiourea (CH3Hg-Thu), or thioglycolate (CH3Hg-Thg). Overall, the CH3Hg(II) concentration in sheepshead minnows in all the treatments increased with time and was significantly different from the unspiked controls after 24 h.
