SHORT COMMUNICATIONS Effect of Polychlorinated Biphenyls on the Antioxidant System and Lipid Peroxidation in Gonads of the Black Sea Scorpionfish Scorpaena porcus L. I. I. Rudneva and N. V. Zherko Kovalevskii Institute of the Biology of Southern Seas, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, pr. Nakhimova 2, Sevastopol, 335000 Ukraine Received July 19, 1998 In aquatic ecosystems, polychlorinated biphenyls Gonads were rinsed with a 0.85% solution of sodium (PCBs) are transferred via food chains, resulting in their chloride, and the obtained samples were homogenized at being accumulated at levels of up to 380-1000 ng/g of a temperature from 0 to 4~ The homogenates were wet tissue in hydrobionts (Tinsli, 1982; Kononen, centrifuged at 10 000 rpm for 15-30 min at the same 1989). PCBs have numerous biological effects on temperature. aquatic animals: they may cause death, malformations, Enzyme activity in supernatants was determined as abnormal embryogeny, a decrease in reproductive rate, described previously (Rudneva-Titova and Zherko, and provoke pathological changes in the organs and 1994): lipoxygenase, by reaction with a carotin
