2022 journal article

Blood concentrations of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are associated with autoimmune-like effects in American alligators from Wilmington, North Carolina


By: T. Guillette*, T. Jackson*, M. Guillette*, J. McCord* & S. Belcher*

author keywords: autoantibodies; autoimmune; crocodilian; immune toxicity; lupus; one health; PFAS
TL;DR: The association of increased PFAS exposure with disrupted immune functions is interpreted to suggest that PFAS broadly alters immune activities resulting in autoimmune-like pathology in American alligators. (via Semantic Scholar)

Comparative assessment of blood mercury in American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) from Coastal North Carolina and Florida

Belcher, S. M., Guillette, M. P., Robb, F., & Rock, K. D. (2022, August 3). ECOTOXICOLOGY, Vol. 8.

By: S. Belcher n, M. Guillette n, F. Robb* & K. Rock n

author keywords: Bioaccumulation; Biomonitoring; Ecotoxicology; Mercury; Metals; Reptile
MeSH headings : Alligators and Crocodiles; Animals; Ecosystem; Environmental Monitoring; Florida; Humans; Mercury / analysis; North Carolina
TL;DR: It is revealed that local environmental factors greatly impact Hg bioaccumulation in alligators, and findings that reaffirm local contaminant biomonitoring in alligator populations will be critical for affective management and determination of guidelines for safe consumption of harvested alligators.
