Accumulation of mercury in tissues of cattle, sheep, and chickens given the mercurial fungicide, Panogen 15, orally


, : Accumulation of mercury in tissues of cattle, sheep, and chickens given the mercurial fungicide, Panogen 15, orally. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry 21(3): 414-416

Yearling cattle and sheep and 6-week-old chickens were given daily oral doses of the mercurial fungicide Panogen 15 (methylmercury dicyandiamide). Cattle and sheep were given the total formulation at 15 mg/kg bodyweight daily to 70 days, and chickens were dosed at both 5 and 10 mg/kg daily to 84 days. Two yearling cattle and three yearling sheep were mildly poisoned in the latter stages of the study. Residues of mercury, estimated by atomic absorption spectrophotometry, were generally higher in cattle than in sheep except in the liver. The order of increasing residues in both cattle and sheep was brain, muscle, liver and kidney. With chickens, residues in liver were higher than in kidney in both treatment groups. The residues of mercury in the tissues of the dosed animals could constitute a hazard to future human consumers. Tissues from control cattle, sheep and chickens contained no detectable amount of mercury.
