Trace elements and oxidative stress indicators in the liver and kidney of the blue shark (Prionace glauca). Academic Article uri icon


  • Trace element concentrations and oxidative stress indicators were measured in the liver and kidney samples of 35 blue sharks caught by local artisan fisheries on the west coast of Baja California Sur (Mexico). Differences between sex and maturity cohorts, and the interactions of trace elements with oxidative stress indicators were assessed. Significant differences were found in trace element (Hg, As, Zn, Cd, Pb) concentrations and oxidative stress indicators (catalase (CAT) activity, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity, lipid peroxidation, TBARS levels) between tissues. Significant sex differences (females
