The scientific article titled "Ultrastructural investigation of iron oxide nanoparticles accumulation in the liver of common carp (Cyprinus carpio Linnaeus, 1758)" co-authored by Associate Professor of the Department of Zoology and Physiology at Baku State University (BSU) Chingiz Mamedov, Head of the Department of Biophysics and Biochemistry Rovshan Khalilov, and PhD student of the same department Aysel Hajiyeva, has been published in the journal "Aquatic Toxicology" (IF:4.5).

In recent years, the intensive production of nanoparticles with a wide application has led to their transfer to the environment, including the water ecosystem. The accumulation of nanoparticles in fish, causing various pathological changes in the host, raises certain concerns. In the current study, BSU scientists investigated the penetration and bioaccumulation of Fe3O4 nanoparticles, in the liver of common carp (Cyprinus carpio Linnaeus, 1758). Common carp juveniles were exposed to Fe3O4 nanoparticles at concentrations of 10 and 100 mg.
