Abstract
Tributyltinoxide (TBTO) and triphenyltin oxide (TPTO) inhibited regeneration of arms of the brittle star, Ophioderma brevispina, at low concentrations. Statistically significant inhibition of growth was caused by 0.1 micrograms/l of both compounds, and inhibition was indicated in all tests at 0.01 micrograms/l. These are the lowest reported toxicity values for organotins and suggest that brittle stars may be sensitive subjects for toxicity testing.
