Toxic effects of two brominated flame retardants BDE-47 and BDE-183 on the survival and protein expression of the tubificid Monopylephorus limosus.


The toxic effects of two brominated diphenyl ethers (BDE), BDE-47, and BDE-183, on a benthic oligochaete tubificid, Monopylephorus limosus were studied under laboratory conditions. Investigated responses included survival, growth, and protein expression profiles, at BDE concentrations of 1, 10, 100, and 700 ng/g on a dry soil weight basis, with isooctane as… (More)
