    Abstract : Ore-mining, metallurgy and other industrial activities represent the source of heavy metal and radionuclide contamination in terrestrial and aquatic environments. Physico-chemical processes are employed for heavy metal removal from industrial wastewater. READ MORE

  2. 2. Oxidative Damage in Fish Used as Biomarkers in Field and Laboratory Studies.

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Bethanie Carney Almroth; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Zoofysiologi; Animal physiology; fish; oxidative stress; antioxidant enzymes; glutathione; protein carbonyls; lipid peroxidation; biomarkers; pollution; aging;

    Abstract : Many toxic xenobiotics entering into the aquatic environment exert their effects through redox cycling. Oxidative stress, incorporating both antioxidant defences as well as oxidative damage, is a common effect in organisms exposed to xenobiotics in their environment. READ MORE
