aeruginosa strain resists cetrimide while it is sensitive to mercury chloride. The EPS can play a role in heavy metal entrapment [33].
Mercury chloride is among heavy metals that are exclusively toxic even at low amounts and it has no biological interest [26].
Effect of concentration and time of exposure to mercury chloride (Hg[Cl.sub.2]) on contamination of Calophyllum brasiliense nodal segments and survival, 30 d after in vitro introduction in WPM medium without PGRs.
The purpose of this study was to submit subjects poisoned with mercury chloride via intraperitoneal injections to behavioral tests, in order to examine the consequences of its toxicity on the agonistic species-specific display as shown in response to the mirror-image test.
The present results show that mercury chloride produces a marked global reduction in behaviors whether the treatment was administered in either acute or progressive doses in Betta splendens.

In fact, several other reports from in vitro and in vivo studies indicate that methyl mercury chloride (MeHgCl) is capable of inducing oxidative stress as part of its very complex mechanism of action (Sarafian and Verity, 1991; Oyama et al., 1994; Sarafian et al., 1994; Yee and Chol, 1996; Marty and Atchison, 1997; S henker et al., 1999; Salonen et al., 2000).
Of different formulations used in seed treatment of Oryza sativa, emisan (2-methoxy ethyl mercury chloride, 0.01%) + streptocycline (0.01) was the most effective for control of seed rot and resulted in maximum germination (Singh et al., 1992).
Micronuclei were increased in roots of Eichhornia crassipes following exposure to methyl mercury chloride (Panda et al., 1988) and in Allium cepa, to methyl mercury chloride (Panda et al., 1989).
In one case, a nineteen-year old married woman relied on regular douching with dissolved mercury chloride tablets for birth control.
When the concentration of the [Cl.sup.-] on the semicoke surface is high, the gaseous [Hg.sup.0] can react with Cl and produce mercury chlorides, such as [[HgCl].sup.+], Hg[Cl.sup.2], or [[Hg[Cl.sub.4]].sup.2-] [23, 24].
