The heavy metals iron and lead are taken up and metabolized in a similar manner by the crayfish hepatopancreas, but only lead appears to enter cells of the antennal gland (green gland). Iron, on the other hand, which apparently is not taken up by the antennal gland cells following systemic injections of low doses (0.05 mg), exerts striking alterations in cell ultrastructure after pericardial injections of massive doses (0.5 mg). Electron microscopic examination and atomic absorption… CONTINUE READING
