Summary:
Metallothioneins are a family of proteins whose synthesis in animal organs and tissues can be induced by exposure to heavy metals. This report describes metallothionein concentrations in fish collected from northern Alberta rivers and tributaries. The analyses incorporate results from examination of kidney, liver, intestine, and gill tissues of burbot, longnose sucker, northern pike, and flathead chub. Results are  Read more...

Abstract:

Metallothioneins are a family of proteins whose synthesis in animal organs and tissues can be induced by exposure to heavy metals. This report describes metallothionein concentrations in fish collected from northern Alberta rivers and tributaries. The analyses incorporate results from examination of kidney, liver, intestine, and gill tissues of burbot, longnose sucker, northern pike, and flathead chub. Results are organised into reference (upstream locations and tributaries receiving no inputs from pulp mills), near-field (within 100 kilometres downstream from a pulp mill), and far-field (over 100 kilometres downstream).
