Aim of the study
In context of the project Eff-Pharm my study aims to evaluate the effect of the beta-blocker metoprolol in juvenile brown trout (Salmo trutta f. fario). Metoprolol is a widely used pharmaceutical that is frequently detected in surface waters. Nevertheless, the potential effects of metoprolol on aquatic organisms are mostly unknown. Therefore, I will examine the changes in the level of the stress protein Hsp70, changes in the cAMP level and histopathological alterations of brown trout exposed to metoprolol.
