This study examines the expression and accumulation of two major stress proteins, stress70 and chaperonin60 (cpn60), in the gill and mantle of blue mussels, Mytilus edulis, which were exposed to a range of Cu concentrations for 7 days. Scope-for-growth (SFG), mortality, and Cu accumulation in gill and mantle tissue were also measured to monitor the physiological effects of Cu exposure in the organisms. In general Cu accumulated to a greater extent in gill relative to mantle tissue. A reduction… CONTINUE READING
