Analytical challenges and the development of biomarkers to measure and to monitor the effects of ocean acidification (2011)
Journal Article
Hardege, J., Rotchell, J., Terschak, J., & Greenway, G. (2011). Analytical challenges and the development of biomarkers to measure and to monitor the effects of ocean acidification. Trends in Analytical Chemistry, 30(8), 1320-1326. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.trac.2011.07.004

Changing ocean-carbonate chemistry caused by oceanic uptake of anthropogenic atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the formation of carbonic acid, thus lowering the pH of the sea with predictions of a decrease from current levels at 8.15 to 7.82 by the... Read More

Identification of Reproduction-Specific genes associated with maturation and estrogen exposure in a marine bivalve Mytilus edulis (2011)
Journal Article
Ciocan, C. M., Cubero-Leon, E., Minier, C., & Rotchell, J. M. (2011). Identification of Reproduction-Specific genes associated with maturation and estrogen exposure in a marine bivalve Mytilus edulis. PloS one, 6(7), e22326. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0022326

Background: While it is established that vertebrate-like steroids, particularly estrogens (estradiol, estrone) and androgens (testosterone), are present in various tissues of molluscs, it is still unclear what role these play in reproductive endocrin... Read More
