Cellular biomarkers for measuring toxicity of xenobiotics: effects of PCBs on earthworm Lumbricus terrestris coelomocytes
Description: The research presented herein provides information on coelomocyte (leukocyte) collection, function and immunotoxicity from polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) in the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris. Research was undertaken as part of an overall goal to develop a well-documented and scientifically valid non-mammalian surrogate immunoassay with the earthworm L. terrestris to assess immunotoxic potential of xenobiotics.
