From: Seasonal assessment of some heavy metal pollution and Metallothionein gene expression in cultured Oreochromis niloticus

Metal Correlation coefficient with MT expression p value
Pb 0.609** < 0.001
Zn 0.037 0.87
Cu 0.752** < 0.001
  1. **Correlation is significant at the 0.01 level (two-tailed)
