Abstract
Bur˘‰kova B., L. Blaha, D. Vr‰kova, K. ·imkova, B. Mar‰alek: Sublethal Toxic Effects and Induction of Gutathione S-transferase by Short chain Chlorinated Paraffins (SCCPs) and C-12 alkane (dodecane) in Xenopus laevis Frog Embryos. Acta Vet. Brno 2006: 75: 115-122. Short chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs) are important industrial chemicals with high persistence in the environment but poorly characterized ecotoxicological effects. We studied embryotoxic effects of commercial mixture of SCCP (carbon length C-12, 56% of chlorine; CP5612) and non-chlorinated n-alkane (dodecane, C-12) in the 96h Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay – Xenopus (FETAX). Only weak lethal effe...
