Cellular responses induced by environmental stress factors in Arctic Seabird chicks : Responses of the antioxidant defense system and autophagic lysosomal processes related to contaminant exposure and food restriction
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2011-11-29)
This PhD study has investigated how two commonly occurring environmental stress factors in the Arctic (periods with little food and exposure to halogenated organic contaminants) have had an impact on two important cellular defense mechanisms in Arctic seabirds. The antioxidant defense system and autophagic lysosomal responses in liver cells of Arctic seabird chicks have been studied. Samples ...
