This study aims to evaluate the ecotoxicity effects of single tetracycline (TC) exposure and mixture exposure in presence of polystyrene nanoplastics (PS-NPs, 80 nm) on juvenile Ctenopharyngodon idella. We carried out single and combined exposure of TC (5000 μg/L) and PS-NPs (20, 200, 2000 μg/L) for 7 days. Compared to TC single exposure, co-exposure to PS-NPs and TC significantly changed the levels of antioxidant entities, including T-AOC, SOD, and CAT in the liver and intestine of C. Read More
