BACKGROUND The analysis of obesogenic effects in invertebrates is limited by our poor knowledge of the regulatory pathways of lipid metabolism. Recent data from the crustacean Daphnia magna points to three signaling hormonal pathways related to the molting and reproductive cycles [retinoic X receptor (RXR), juvenile hormone (JH), and ecdysone] as putative(More)
In earlier single-species toxicity tests we showed the negative effects on the calanoid copepod Acartia tonsa upon exposure to cypermethrin, a pesticide used in treatment for sea lice in salmon farming. In the present study we assessed effects at a higher level of biological organization and under a more realistic exposure scenario using mesocosms. The(More)
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are widely used antidepressants. As endocrine disruptive contaminants in the environment, SSRIs affect reproduction in aquatic organisms. In the water flea Daphnia magna, SSRIs increase offspring production in a food ration-dependent manner. At limiting food conditions, females exposed to SSRIs produce more(More)
Climate change is a major concern for the scientific community, demanding novel information about the effects of environmental stressors on living organisms. Metabolic profiling is required for achieving the most extensive possible range of compounds and their concentration changes on stressed conditions. Individuals of the crustacean species Daphnia magna(More)
A non-neglectable amount of information shared in social networks has quotes to literary works that, most of the times, is not linked to the original work or author. Also, there are erroneous quotes that do not fully match the original work, for example by including synonyms and slang words. Moreover, users sometimes associate their quotes to the wrong(More)
The transcriptional response of adult zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) to heavy metals (mercury, copper, and cadmium) was analyzed by quantitative Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR) to study the coordinated regulation of different metal-, oxidative stress- and xenobiotic defence-related genes in gills and digestive gland. Regulatory network(More)
