A novel population health approach: using fish retinoblastoma gene profiles as a surrogate for humans (2008)
Journal Article
Rotchell, J. M., du Corbier, F. A., Stentiford, G. D., Lyons, B. P., Liddle, A. R., & Ostrander, G. K. (2009). A novel population health approach: using fish retinoblastoma gene profiles as a surrogate for humans. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology - Part C: Toxicology and Pharmacology, 149(2), (134-140). doi:10.1016/j.cbpc.2008.09.009. ISSN 1532-0456

Retinoblastoma, a tumor suppressor gene, is frequently mutated in diverse types of human tumors. We have previously shown that two types of fish tumor, eye and liver, also possess mutant Rb genes. Our aim is to determine if the Rb allele status is li... Read More

Ras gene in marine mussels: A molecular level response to petrochemical exposure (2008)
Journal Article
Lima, I., Peck, M. R., Rendón-Von Osten, J., Soares, A. M. V. M., Guilhermino, L., & Rotchell, J. (2008). Ras gene in marine mussels: A molecular level response to petrochemical exposure. Marine pollution bulletin, 56(4), (633-640). doi:10.1016/j.marpolbul.2008.01.018. ISSN 0025-326X

Mussels are susceptible to numerous toxicants and are often employed as bioindicators. This study investigated the status of the ras proto-oncogene in Mytilus galloprovincialis following petrochemical exposure. A M. galloprovincialis homologue of the... Read More
