Effects of cadmium on skeletal muscles and swimming performance of Danio rerio

Abstract

This study describes the physiological and cytological effects of an environmentally realistic concentration of cadmium on muscles organization and swimming performance of Danio rerio. Results indicate that the ion reduces the Ucrit and that this effects is probably related to the  resorbtion of myofibrils observed in red and white muscles.
