The use of biological methods for pesticide monitoring

, : The use of biological methods for pesticide monitoring. Science of the Total Environment 132(2-3): 399-414

Since it has been recognized that analytical surveillance of surface waters for pesticides is very expensive, time consuming and does not allow a complete characterization of all parent compounds and their metabolites, it is proposed to employ aquatic organisms for screening water samples on the basis of their toxicity. Toxic effects on target organisms should indicate the occurrence of specific classes of pesticides, in this way helping the analyst in the choice of analytical procedures. This approach was tentatively applied to river Po waters (Italy) in order to evaluate the contribution of different classes of pesticides to global river pollution.

An enzymatic semi-solid surface fluorometric method is described for the determination of serum creatinine on silicone-rubber pads. In this method, the glutamate dehydrogenase, alpha-ketoglutarate, ADP and NADH are mixed, then 30 microliters of di...

The allogeneic effect results in an increase in the number of antibody-producing cells (PFC) when the allogeneically stimulated lymphoid cells and the antibody-producing cells are from young individuals. This increase depends on the interaction of...

A homology model of the pore domain of the Shaker K+ channel has been constructed using a bacterial K+ channel, KcsA, as a template structure. The model is in agreement with mutagenesis and sequence variability data. A number of structural feature...

Positive chronotrophic as well as inotropic effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) have been observed in pig artial tissue, but no data are available about the direct effects of 5-HT on ventricular tissue. In the present study we investigated inotr...

A number of 2,5-diphenylpyrrole and 2-amino-3-ciano-4,5-dimethylpyrrole derivatives have been synthesized and examined for antiviral activity in mice and chick embryos. Some of them have been found to possess a pronounced virucidal activity.
