- Tissue lead concentration during chronic exposure of Pimephales promelas (fathead minnow) to lead nitrate in aquarium waterEric G Spokas
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Rowan University, Glassboro, New Jersey 08028 1701, USA
Environ Sci Technol 40:6852-8. 2006..These findings demonstrate that fathead minnow gills bind and accumulate waterborne lead rapidly and preferentially and raise the possibility that gill lipid peroxidation contributes to lead toxicity at low water hardness...
- Release of the lipid peroxidation marker 8-epi-prostaglandin F2 alpha from isolated gill pavement cellsEric G Spokas
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Rider University, Lawrenceville, New Jersey 08648 3099, USA
Environ Toxicol Chem 27:1569-75. 2008..In summary, F2-iP release occurs during lipid peroxidation injury to fish gill epithelium, and its measurement may facilitate aquatic toxicology studies of metallic and nonmetallic contaminants...
