AbstractLevels of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as H2O2 and oxygen radicals, increase in stress conditions. Thus, they can be considered as a biomarker for toxic stress in marine microalgal populations. Three specific fluorochromes for intracellular ROS ((Bis-(1,3-Dibutylbarbituric Acid)TrimethineOxonol (DiBAC4(3)); Dihidrorhodamine 123 (DHR123) andHydroetidine (HE)) as well as a fluorochrome for cellular viability (Fluorescein diacetate(FDA)) were assayed on monolagal cultures of the diatom Phaeodactylumtricornutum under copper stress in order to select a suitable fluorochrome for detecting intracellular ROS. Among all fluorochromes assayed, DiBAC4(3) offered a better response than the others. Then, wild populations obtained from natural locations (sampling stations at the Guadalete River estuary) were exposed to sub-lethal copper concentrations and compared with controls free of added metal. A decrease in the fluorescent DiBAC4(3) signal for FL1 (515-545 nm), which is associated to less cellular stress, was found for the samples with higher turbidity. The hypothesis is that copper adsorbs to silt-sized suspended sediment and it is not bioavailable for growing microalgae, decreasing thus metal toxicity.
