This study investigated the effect of microcystin-LR (MC-LR) on in vivo cardiorespiratory function and on tissue biomarkers of oxidative stress in gills and liver of the trahira, a neotropical freshwater fish. Trahira were treated with an intraperitoneal injection of 100 µg MC-LR.kg−1 body mass or a saline, with the toxic effects of MC-LR then evaluated after 48 h. Rates of oxygen uptake (V̇O2) di ...
