The aim of this work is to study the biochemical organization and response of defense system in digestive gland and gills of marine bivalve Scapharca broughtoni during anoxia/hypoxia and recovery. The results obtained show that anoxia exposure caused decreasing of total antioxidant activity, level of glutathione and intensive increasing of lipid peroxidation product.

Key words

Anoxia, aerobic recovery, antioxidant system, total oxyradical scavenging capacity, oxidative stress, glutathione, lipid peroxidation.
