Abstract:
The Institute of Life Sciences (ISV) of the Université Catholique de Louvain performs biological research using molecular and cellular methods. This research is applied on animals, plants, microorganisms as well as on biomolecules. Within the research group Biology of Nutrition and Environmental Toxicology, marine related research is conducted on the following topics:
- The influence of pollutants such as PCBs on antioxidant enzymes in the muscles and liver of deep-sea fish;
- Antioxidant mechanisms of animals in the proximity of hydrothermal vents and other deep-sea fish;
- The toxicokinetics and physiological effects of organic contaminants on marine mammals such as seals;
- Effects of multiple stress (nutrition and pollution) in aquatic organisms, from molecular to ecosystem approach.
