  1. 1. Developmental exposure to mixtures of environmental pollutants Studies on metabolism, developmental processes, and reproductive organs in zebrafish and chicken embryos

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Mentor; Maria Jönsson; Patrick Babin; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mixtures; Developmental toxicology; Endocrine disrupting chemicals; Metabolism; Feminization; Zebrafish; Chicken embryo; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi;

    Abstract : Humans and wildlife are continuously exposed to mixtures of environmental pollutants. Mixture toxicity can be challenging to predict due to interactions between chemicals and thus whole-mixture approaches are crucial in toxicology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Distribution and Long-term Effects of the Environmental Neurotoxin β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) Brain changes and behavioral impairments following developmental exposure

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Oskar Karlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ALS PDC; Guam; Developmental neurotoxicity; Brain growth spurt; Behavior; Nonprotein amino acid; Excitotoxic; Cyanobacteria; Apoptosis; BMAA; environmental toxin; Algal blooming; Algblomning; algtoxin; alggift; hjärnutveckling; PHARMACY Toxicology; FARMACI Toxikologi; Toxicology; Toxikologi;

    Abstract : Many cyanobacteria are reported to produce the nonprotein amino acid β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA). Cyanobacteria are extensively distributed in terrestrial and aquatic environments and recently BMAA was detected in temperate aquatic ecosystems, e.g. the Baltic Sea. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development and application of a proteomic approach to the assessment of pollution in the marine environment

    Abstract : Today, assessment of the health of coastal waters is recognized as being important for both the conservation of nature and well-being of humans. Anthropogenic pollution has been the focus of extensive research for some time and a variety of programs for the monitoring and assessment of environmental pollution have been developed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biomarkers in perch (Perca fluviatilis) used in environmental monitoring of the Stockholm recipient and background areas in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för tillämpad miljövetenskap (ITM)

    Author : Tomas Hansson; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biomarker; DDT; environmental monitoring; EROD; fish; GSI; nanoinjection; PAH; PCB; Perca fluviatilis; perch; reproduction; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry Environmental toxicology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi Miljötoxikologi; tillämpad miljövetenskap; Applied Environmental Science;

    Abstract : This thesis reports the results of biomarker measurements in three environmental monitoring projects. In the first project, which was part of the Swedish national environmental monitoring, biomarkers were measured annually in female perch (Perca fluviatilis) in two background areas in the Baltic Sea during 1988–2000, resulting in a unique 13-year series of measurements.

  5. 5. Fate of contaminants in Baltic Sea sediment ecosystems : the role of bioturbation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Systemekologiska institutionen

    Author : Jenny E Hedman; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Toxicology; Toxikologi; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Aquatic sediments are of major importance for the cycling of environmental pollutants, acting as both sinks and secondary sources of contaminants to the ecosystem. Sediment-living organisms can affect the fate and transport of contaminants through activities like feeding and burrowing, collectively called bioturbation. READ MORE
