Molecular changes in skin pigmented lesions of the coral trout Plectropomus leopardus (2016)
Journal Article
Lerebours, A., Chapman, E. C., Rotchell, J. M., Heupel, M. R., & Sweet, M. J. (2016). Molecular changes in skin pigmented lesions of the coral trout Plectropomus leopardus. Marine environmental research, 120, (130-135). doi:10.1016/j.marenvres.2016.07.009. ISSN 0141-1136

© 2016 Elsevier Ltd A high prevalence of skin pigmented lesions of 15% was recently reported in coral trout Plectropomus leopardus, a commercially important marine fish, inhabiting the Great Barrier Reef. Herein, fish were sampled at two offshore sit... Read More

Environmental concentration of carbamazepine accelerates fish embryonic development and disturbs larvae behavior (2016)
Journal Article
Qiang, L., Cheng, J., Yi, J., Rotchell, J. M., Zhu, X., & Zhou, J. (2016). Environmental concentration of carbamazepine accelerates fish embryonic development and disturbs larvae behavior. Ecotoxicology, 25(7), 1426-1437. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10646-016-1694-y

Environmental pollution caused by pharmaceuticals has been recognized as a major threat to the aquatic ecosystems. Carbamazepine, as the widely prescribed antiepileptic drug, has been frequently detected in the aquatic environment and has created con... Read More

Short-term effects of CO₂-induced low pH exposure on target gene expression in Platynereis dumerilii (2016)
Journal Article
Wäge, J., Rohr, S., Hardege, J. D., & Rotchell, J. M. (2016). Short-term effects of CO₂-induced low pH exposure on target gene expression in Platynereis dumerilii. Journal of Marine Biology and Oceanography, 5(2), doi:10.4172/2324-8661.1000155

Objective: Increasing atmospheric CO₂ concentration are causing changes to the seawater carbonate chemistry, lowering the pH and we study potential impacts of these changes at the molecular level in a non-calcifying, marine polychaete species Platyne... Read More
