In virtue of these facts, it may be asserted that even with the stabilized GSH at control levels in the digestive gland of the Cd-Fe treated mussels, the rise of MT amount possibly set up antioxidant mechanisms making possible the organisms to cope up with the potential harmfulness of the oxidative elements, facilitating the normal response to anaerobiosis.
