Kılıc¸ ∗, V. Kılıc¸ Biology, Anadolu University, Eskis¸ehir, Turkey Purpose: Metallothioneins (MTs) are cysteine-rich proteins involved in heavy metal homeostasis/detoxification and radical scavenging. MTs have been widely evaluated as biomarkers of metal contamination for different animal species including the pollution resistant aquatic oligochaeta Tubifex tubifex. However no reports are available about the role of MT in thallium (TI) intoxicated Tubifex worms in correlation with other defences. The present study aims to investigate the effects of sublethal TI concentrations on MT induction, acetylcholine esterase (AChE) activity and antioxidantive response in T. tubifex. Methods: The study was consisted of a control and six experimental groups. Experimental groups were exposed to sublethal doses of TI for 7 and 15 days at 0.0025, 0.005, and 0.01mg/L−1
