Abstract

Aging is a biological process that is accompanied by the gradual loss of physiological functions. Under the context of ubiquitous and persistent environmental pollution, the elderly will be more vulnerable to the detrimental effects of toxic pollutants than the young. With objectives to explore...

Abstract

Phthalic acid esters (PAEs) are chemical pollutants widely distributed in the marine environment. They can accumulate in biota, posing a risk to the marine ecosystem and humans. The aim of this study was to measure the content of PAEs in the gills and muscles of three fish species (Mugil cephalus, ...

Abstract

In the present paper, an optimized method to extract common carp sperm DNA (csDNA) from common carp testis, the mechanism of ethidium bromide (EtBr) interaction with csDNA, as well as the removal of EtBr pollutant by csDNA was studied. The results showed that high salt extraction method was...

Abstract

Artificial light at night (ALAN) is considered one of the most pervasive forms of environmental pollution. It is an emerging threat to freshwater biodiversity and can influence ecologically important behaviours of fish. The European eel (Anguilla anguilla) is a critically endangered catadromous...

Abstract

Plastic pollution is an emerging problem and is a consequence of the post-consumer plastic waste accumulation in the environment coupled to mismanaged waste programmes. Countries are counteracting the continuous growth of plastic litter with different strategies: introducing bans and limits on both ...

Abstract

Nuclear abnormality (NA) assay in fish has been widely applied for toxicity risk assessment under field and laboratory conditions. The zebrafish (Danio rerio) has become a suitable model system for assessing the NA induced by pollutants. Thus, the current study aimed to summarize and discuss the...

Abstract

The freshwater pearl mussel (FWPM) Margaritifera margaritifera is a bivalve mollusk critically endangered in Europe. There is a special concern about the conservation of this species, but little is known about its sensitivity to environmental pollution. Here, acute toxicity tests were conducted at ...

Abstract

The impact of micro plastics (MPs) on the bivalve larvae at different developmental stages throughout their life history, especially for the metamorphic stage is not at all available. In organisms, consequences of plastic ingestion include exposure to environmental pollutants and toxin...

Abstract

Along with the increasing amount of plastic production and waste disposal, the presence of microplastics has been confirmed in all compartments of ecosystems. The microplastics in biota is of particular concern due to the potential eco-risks associated with long term exposure and the potential for...
