The in vitro influence of microcystin-LR (MC-LR) on rainbow trout phagocytic cell functions was studied. The cells isolated from the fish blood were exposed on MC-LR at the concentrations of 1, 5, 10, 20 microg/mL. The viability of the cells after 2, 4 and 24 hour incubation with MC-LR was studied as well as phagocytic cell ability measured as zymozan particle phagocytosis and metabolic activity measured as respiratory burst activity. The toxin caused time- and dose-dependent viability decrease… CONTINUE READING
