Abstract: There were qualitative and quantitative changes in the serum proteins of bluegills, Lepomis macrochirus, exposed to 8.728 X 10~4 ppb (W/V) of methyl mercury (MeHg) for 24, 48, and 72 hr. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) of serum proteins revealed significant changes in the qualitative and quantitative profiles at 24 and 48 hr. However, at 72 hr a trend to return to control levels was noted. The data suggest that at the dose tested, MeHg produced repairable lesions in certain tissues or organs of bluegills.
