Project: An in vitro study of cytopathology, uptake and storage of HgCl2 and MethyCl in cultured invertebrate cells.
- project duration
- 01-OCT-94 – 31-DEC-99
- The light and electron microscopical morphology as well as some biochemical aspects of mercury intoxication will be studies in cultured invertebrate cells. This includes the comparative study of uptake, storage kinetics and cytopathology for both mercury compounds. The results will give information on toxicology and detoxication of these heavy metal species in invertebrate cells, which will be compared to the existing literature on vertebrate cells.
