...Theanuga Chandrapalan; Raymond W. M. Kwong ABSTRACT Trace metals such as iron, copper, zinc and manganese play essential roles in various biological processes in fish, including development, energy metabolism and immune response. At embryonic stages, fish obtain essential metals primarily from...

... as a major threat to pollinators, metal pollutants, which are often found in complex mixtures, have so far been overlooked. Here, we assessed the impact of acute exposure to field-realistic concentrations of three common metal pollutants, lead, copper and arsenic, and their combinations, on honey bee...

..., and in the nucleus. This study investigated the activation pattern and subcellular distribution of ERK in liver and gill cells of rainbow trout upon hypo-osmotic shock, addition of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and copper treatment. It further set out to characterize the hypothetical role of nuclear-export signal...

...Catherine Gaitanaki; Maria Pliatska; Konstantina Stathopoulou; Isidoros Beis SUMMARY In the present study, we investigated the induction of the p38-MAPK signalling pathway by copper, as exemplified by CuCl 2 , in the isolated perfused heart of the amphibian Rana ridibunda . We found that p38-MAPK...

... not significantly affect cHH release and hyperglycemia. In addition, we measured the level and variation of 5-HT in the eyestalk and hemolymph of P. elegans following copper contamination. The release of 5-HT from the eyestalk is very rapid and dose dependent. In the hemolymph, a peak of 5-HT occurs after 30 min...
