Microplastic Size-Dependent Toxicity, Oxidative Stress Induction, and p-JNK and p-p38 Activation in the Monogonont Rotifer (Brachionus koreanus).
In vitro tests revealed that antioxidant-related enzymes and MAPK signaling pathways were significantly activated in response to microplastic exposure in a size-dependent manner, suggesting that 6-μm microbeads are more effectively egested from B. koreanus than 0.05- or 0.5- μm microBeads.

Fifteen species in one: deciphering the Brachionus plicatilis species complex (Rotifera, Monogononta) through DNA taxonomy
A dataset of previously available and newly generated sequences of COI and ITS1 for 1273 isolates of the Brachionus plicatilis complex is collated and used to explore phylogenetic signal in morphometric and ecological traits, and to understand correlation among the traits using phylogenetic comparative models.
Adverse effects of microplastics and oxidative stress-induced MAPK/Nrf2 pathway-mediated defense mechanisms in the marine copepod Paracyclopina nana
This study provides the first insight into the mode of action in terms of microplastic-induced oxidative stress and related signaling pathways in P. nana, and proposes an adverse outcome pathway for microplastics exposure that covers molecular and individual levels.
