S. Eskandari; H. Mozdarani; A. Mashinchian Moradi; M. H. Shahhosseiny

Volume 2, Issue 4 , December 2012, , Pages 215-224

  Crude oil is enriched in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Many PAH analogs have proved to potentially damage DNA. DNA damage can be assessed using various biomarkers to find out the degree of genotoxicity of pollutants following in vitro exposure. In this research the comet assay and micronucleus ...  Read More

F. Shariati; A. Esmaili Sari; A. Mashinchian Moradi; M. Pourkazemi

Volume 2, Issue 1 , March 2012, , Pages 81-90

  Tissue metal accumulations (gills, liver, kidney and muscle) in Persian sturgeon (Acipenser persicus) were compared folowing exposure to sublethal levels of waterborne Cd (50, 400 and 1000 μg•L-1) after periods of 1, 2, 4 and 14 days. The obtained results indicate that at the end of 4 and 14 ...  Read More

Fish Bile as Biomarker of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon Pollution in the Khure Mussa – Persian Gulf

A. Mashinchian Moradi; Sh. Zirehpour; M. B. Bahadori; Gh. Vossughi; M. B. Nabavi

Volume 2, Issue 1 , March 2012, , Pages 129-134

  Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon ( TPH ) are environmental contaminants that are released into the marine environment through oil spills, industrial and domestic activities. TPH are readily transformed into more hydrophilic metabolites, which are accumulated in bile. Thus fish bile can be used as a biomarker ...  Read More
