The effects of selenium on oxidative stress biomarkers in the freshwater characid fish matrinxã, Brycon cephalus (Günther, 1869) exposed to organophosphate insecticide Folisuper 600 BR (methyl parathion).

Abstract

Methyl parathion (MP), an organophosphate widely applied in agriculture and aquaculture, induces oxidative stress due to free radical generation and changes in the antioxidant defense system. The antioxidant roles of selenium (Se) were evaluated in Brycon cephalus exposed to 2 mg L(-1) of Folisuper 600 BR (MP commercial formulation - MPc, 600 g L(-1)) for… (More)
