PAH body residues and lysosomal membrane destabilization in mussels exposed to Dubai Star bunker fuel oil (IFO 380) spill in Sanfrancisco Bay

0
Following the spill of bunker fuel oil (IFO 380, approximately 1,500–3,000 L) into San Francisco Bay in October 2009, PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) concentrations in mussels from moderately oiled areas increased up to 87,554 ng/g (dry wt.) and, 3 months later, decreased to concentrations found in mussels collected prior to oiling with a biological half‐life of approximately 16 days. Lysosomal membrane destabilization increased in mussels with higher PAH body burdens. Environ Toxicol Chem © 2014 SETAC
