Microplastics in mussels sampled from coastal waters and supermarkets in the United Kingdom (2018)
Journal Article
Li, J., Green, C., Reynolds, A., Shi, H., & Rotchell, J. M. (2018). Microplastics in mussels sampled from coastal waters and supermarkets in the United Kingdom. Environmental pollution, 241, 35-44. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envpol.2018.05.038

Global contamination of the marine environment by plastic has led to the discovery of microplastics in a range of marine species, including those for human consumption. In this study, the presence of microplastics and other anthropogenic debris in se... Read More about Microplastics in mussels sampled from coastal waters and supermarkets in the United Kingdom.

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...

Silver nanoparticles affect the neural development of zebrafish embryos: AgNPs affect the embryonic neural development (2015)
Journal Article
Xin, Q., Rotchell, J. M., Cheng, J., Yi, J., & Zhang, Q. (2015). Silver nanoparticles affect the neural development of zebrafish embryos: AgNPs affect the embryonic neural development. Journal of Applied Toxicology, 35(12), 1481-1492. https://doi.org/10.1002/jat.3164

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been widely used in commercial products. This study aims to understand the impact of AgNPs on the early developmental stages in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos. Embryos were exposed to two sizes of AgNPs at three dos... Read More about Silver nanoparticles affect the neural development of zebrafish embryos: AgNPs affect the embryonic neural development.

Molecular characterization of an estrogen receptor and estrogen-related receptor and their autoregulatory capabilities in two Mytilus species (2015)
Journal Article
Nagasawa, K., Treen, N., Kondo, R., Otoki, Y., Itoh, N., Rotchell, J. M., & Osada, M. (2015). Molecular characterization of an estrogen receptor and estrogen-related receptor and their autoregulatory capabilities in two Mytilus species. Gene, 564(2), 153-159. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gene.2015.03.073

Vertebrate-like sex steroid hormones have been widely detected in mollusks, and numerous experiments have shown the importance of steroids in gonad development. Nevertheless, their signaling pathways in invertebrates have not been uncovered yet. Ster...

Genetic alterations and cancer formation in a European flatfish at sites of different contamination burdens (2014)
Journal Article
Lerebours, A., Stentiford, G., Bignell, J. P., Lyons, B. P., Derocles, S. A. P., & Rotchell, J. (2014). Genetic alterations and cancer formation in a European flatfish at sites of different contamination burdens. Environmental Science and Technology, 48(17), 10448-10455. https://doi.org/10.1021/es502591p

Fish diseases are an indicator for marine ecosystem health since they provide a biological end-point of historical exposure to stressors. Liver cancer has been used to monitor the effects of exposure to anthropogenic pollution in flatfish for many ye...
