      Offshore petroleum exploration has increased the risks of oil spills in coastal tropical and subtropical habitats. Monitoring tools are needed to assess and protect environmental health. We determined baseline values of antioxidant biomarkers (CAT, SOD, GPx, GST, MDA) for five ecologically relevant species in a subtropical system in southern Brazil. Regional baseline levels are compared with literature ...
    • Oxidative stress in two tropical species after exposure to diesel oil 

      Sardi Sulvarán, Adriana Eva; Sandrini-Neto, Leonardo; da S. Pereira, Leticia; Silva de Assis, Helena; Martins, Cesar C.; Lana, Paulo Da Cunha; Camus, Lionel (Peer reviewed, 2016-08-03)
      Recent offshore petroleum exploration has increased the risks of oil spills worldwide. We investigated biomarker responses to diesel oil exposure in two tropical and subtropical species, the clam Anomalocardia flexuosa and the polychaete Laeonereis culveri. Animals were exposed to oil-spiked sediment at two different concentrations (0.5 L and 1.0 L m−2). Activities of antioxidant enzymes catalase ...
