Özet

Background: Metals can disturb the integrity of physiological and biochemical mechanisms in fish. Thus components of defense as an antioxidant system are significant biomarkers due to their vital role in coping with metal stress. The aim of the current study is to investigate the direct effects of Cd, Cu, and Zn sublethal exposures (in vitro) on the antioxidant system parameters in the liver and kidney of Nile tilapia.
