Metal accumulation and depuration
by American oyster, Crassostrea-virginica.
Subsequently, the washed specimens were submitted to two procedures: (i) the soft tissue of the mussels was removed, and the glycogen concentration was quantified (see the section Glycogen concentration); and (ii) the mussels were submitted to depuration
as described by Anacleto et al.
Given the increasing volume of research documenting the deleterious impact of PBDEs on human health (see, e.g., [3, 6, 42, 43]), it is important to briefly consider the primary routes of human exposure to PBDE congeners, mechanisms of harm, and depuration
of these persistent pollutants.
Effects of depuration
of molluscs experimentally contaminated with Escherichia coli, Vibrio cholerae O1 and Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
nudus was significantly lower after the depuration
period (Table 3B).
Individuals were grouped by size (>20 mm; <20 mm) and sent to different treatments while still alive (depuration
Accumulation and depuration
of tetramethyl lead by rainbow trout, Water Res.15: 621.
We also checked the depuration
quality of small molecules and convective volumes during the 4 periods.
Scintigraphic images (Figure 3) corroborate the biodistribution results, showing high radioactivity accumulation in the abdominal region, which was mainly due to [sup.99m]Tc-HYNIC-[beta]Ala-[Bombesin.sub.(7-14)] depuration
, showing high levels of radioactivity in kidneys and bladder.
