Figure 3: Enzymatic activities in liver and kidney of zeabra-seabreams exposed to mercurials and co-exposed to mercurials and Se (subset of results from a study previously reported in Branco et al. [34]). Exposure lasted 28 days and was followed by 14 days of depuration in clean or Se-supplemented water. (a) TrxR activity in the liver of seabreams exposed to Hg2+ and co-exposed to Hg2+ and Se; (b) TrxR activity in the liver of seabreams exposed to MeHg and co-exposed to MeHg and Se; (c) TrxR and GR activities in the kidney of seabreams exposed to Hg2+ and co-exposed to Hg2+ and Se; (d) TrxR and GR activities in the kidney of seabreams exposed to MeHg and co-exposed to MeHg and Se. GR activity in the liver did not show significant variation and was not represented to improve clarity.
