Relationship between extracellular low-molecular-weight thiols and mercury species in natural lake periphytic biofilms
(American chemical Society, 2015-05-26)
The uptake of mercury by microorganisms is a key step in the production of methylmercury, a biomagnifiable toxin. Mercury complexation by low molecular weight (LMW) thiols can affect its bioavailability and thus the ...
High methylmercury in Arctic and subarctic ponds is related to nutrient levels in the warming eastern Canadian Arctic
Permafrost thaw ponds are ubiquitous in the eastern Canadian Arctic, yet little information exists on their potential as sources of methylmercury (MeHg) to freshwaters. They are microbially active and conducive to ...
