Cadmium induced metallothionein in hepatopancreas of Procambarus clarkii: Quantification by a silver-saturation method

, : Cadmium induced metallothionein in hepatopancreas of Procambarus clarkii: Quantification by a silver-saturation method. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology C Comparative Pharmacology and Toxicology 105(2): 263-267

1. Cadmium induced metallothionein (MT) in crayfish hepatopancreas was measured by silver-saturation method. 2. An increase in MT content was recorded in crayfish hepatopancreas after 12 hr of exposure to 10 mg Cd/l. 3. There was found to be a linear relationship between MT concentrations in hepatopancreas and cadmium concentration in the water. 4. MT levels in hepatopancreas of 20 mg Cd/l exposed crayfish were 7-fold higher than those in control animals.

Correlation between anti-DNA induction and polyclonal antibody formation by various polyclonal B lymphocyte activators. The capacity of various polyclonal B lymphocyte activators (PBA) to induce, in mice, the formation of anti-DNA antibodies was compared with their ability to mediate the release of DNA in circulating blood and to stimulate polyclonal antibody synth...
