    ..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...

  1. Effect of Lead on Ion Transport in Fathead Gill
    ERIC SPOKAS; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..Results will be analyzed to determine if lead causes analogous iP-dependent changes in proximal nephron and gill epithelium. ..
