Certain metals, like Hg, Cu and Cd, are capable of down-regulating protein synthesis in several marine organisms, including Mytilus galloprovincialis. Nevertheless, due to the complexity of the environmental stress, it is difficult to evaluate the influence of individual metals on protein synthesis via field studies. To bypass this difficulty, experimental studies were carried out on M. galloprovincialis exposed in aquarium for 15 days to one of three selected metal salts, HgCl(2), CuCl(2) and… CONTINUE READING
