Determining the Effect of Acetaminophen on Peroxidases in Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon by Altering Acetaminophen Concentrations During Watering

By: Marisa Peine and Abigail Lukowicz Abstract Increasing amounts of pharmaceutical medications have been found in water treatment plants, leading to a concern for the ecological implications of these drugs. Research suggests that the effect of acetaminophen, particularly, on humans and mice is dependent on the levels of GSH peroxidase. If the levels are too low to control the acetaminophen, the drug becomes toxic to the organism, including plants, as many studies suggest, whose detoxification mechanisms are similar to the […]
