Journal Article
Arabeyyat, Z. H., Al-Awady, M. J., Greenway, G. M., Paunov, V., & Rotchell, J. M. (2020). Toxicity of polyelectrolyte-functionalized titania nanoparticles in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos. SN Applied Sciences, 2(7), https://doi.org/10.1007/s42452-020-3137-x

We investigated the effects of short-term exposure of bare TiO2NPs and polyelectrolyte-coated TiO2NPs in the 5-25 nm size range, at relatively high concentrations (of 500 and 1000 mg/L) under light or dark conditions, in D. rerio embryos. The biologi... Read More about Toxicity of polyelectrolyte-functionalized titania nanoparticles in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos.

Influence of light and temperature cycles on the expression of circadian clock genes in the mussel Mytilus edulis (2020)
Journal Article

Clock genes and environmental cues regulate essential biological rhythms. The blue mussel, Mytilus edulis, is an ecologically and economically important intertidal bivalve undergoing seasonal reproductive rhythms. We previously identified seasonal...
