AhR Signaling in Rainbow Trout and Zebrafish

To help state, national and international organizations develop more   efficient and reliable methods for assessing the risks posed to wild   fish populations by dioxins, furans and PCBs, researchers in this   continuing project are elucidating the specific biochemical  mechanisms by which these environmental contaminants exert their   toxic effects on fish.     Besides providing detailed knowledge about toxic pathways in fish at   the molecular level, the results of this project will enable risk   assessment efforts to be more rigorous, thus also addressing the   Wisconsin Urban Coast Theme priority of assessing the threats to   human health and aquatic life posed by chemical contamination of   aquatic ecosystems as well as the national Biotechnology Theme goal   of improving risk characterization of toxicants to aquatic animal   life.    (toxic organics); (PCB); (PCB's); (PCBs); (polychlorinated   biphenyls); (polychlorinated biphenyl); (dioxin); (dioxins);   (furan); (furans); (human health); (fish consumption); (fish   consumption advisory); (fish consumption advisories); (toxic   organic); (POP); (POPs); (POP's); (persistent organic pollutant);   (persistent organic pollutants); (Wisconsin); (chemicals of   concern); (chemical of concern)
