  • Trophic transfer[Cd ]of the water is not indication of food safety

    Fish growth affected

  • Penaeid shrimp Penaeu japonicusIncreased tolerance with development nauplii48h LC50=124ug/LZoea96 LC50=10-30ug/LPost-larvae96 LC50= 200-3500ug/LJuvenile96LC50=5500ug/LDecreased osmoregulation

  • Chronic protracted toxicity testMysidopsis bahia17 day life cycle test10.6 ug/L @ 20 / Breeding cycle # of young released Sensitive crustacean LC50 ~ 15

  • Eastern oyster- Crassostrea virginicaPhysiological effects intracellular localizationGills- mitochondria-> Respiration-> metabolismHepatopancreas- lysosomes -> lysosome damage


    Mutagenic - DNAClastogenic- chromosomesCarcinogenic-cancerTeratogenic-birth defects

  • Cd Break DNA directlyBreak DNA indirectlyOxidative stress- free radicalsInhibits glutathione ROS scavengerResponse= DNA breakage/ recoveryCd impairs DNA repair- compete with zinc


  • MECHANISMS OF DETOXIFICATIONMetallothioneins (MT) low mw proteinscytosolsaturation- bind to critical sites

    Sequestering- Vesicles- lysosomes, other structuresSaturation-> lysosome damage

    FOUNDRY COVE/ SOUTH COVE STUDY oligochaete Limnodrilus sp. Used both mechanisms

    MTs transfer to lysosomes
