  • 1 November 2018
The results highlighted the widespread distribution of microplastics in sediments from the Bohai Sea and the Yellow Sea and provided useful information for evaluating the environmental risks of micro Plastics in China. Expand
Investigation of heavy metals in sediments and Manila clams Ruditapes philippinarum from Jiaozhou Bay, China
There was a strong correlation between the concentrations of Cd, Pb, Zn, Mn, Cr, and Ni in soft tissues and surrounding sediments and it is indicated that R. philippinarum could be used as a biomonitor for heavy metal contamination in Jiaozhou Bay. Expand

A combination of proteomics and metabolomics could provide important insights into the effects of OA at molecular levels by investigating the impact of exposure to elevated pCO2 condition in mantle tissue of Crassostrea gigas. Expand
Molecular characterization of a manganese superoxide dismutase and copper/zinc superoxide dismutase from the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis.
Results suggest that these SODs may play important roles in the immune defense system of M. galloprovincialis and perhaps contribute to the protective effects against oxidative stress in this mussel. Expand
Microplastic in cultured oysters from different coastal areas of China.

  • 25 February 2019
The results suggest the widespread prevalence of microplastics in cultured oysters from different coastal areas of China with similar or lower abundances than other countries, and exhibited regional characteristics of highmicroplastics abundance in southern coastal area of China and low microplastic abundance in northern China. Expand
A metabolomic investigation of the effects of metal pollution in oysters Crassostrea hongkongensis.
NMR-based metabolomics is a useful tool for characterizing metabolic responses induced by metal pollution in oysters from clean and metal-polluted sites, as indicated by different metabolic biomarkers. Expand
A systems analysis of microplastic pollution in Laizhou Bay, China.
Cluster analysis suggested that the Gudong, Yellow River Estuary and Laizhou-Weifang regions are three sources of microplastics, which might originate from river input, plastic recycling and marine raft aquaculture. Expand
Microplastic uptake in commercial fishes from the Bohai Sea, China.
The spatial variation of MPs was determined in terms of abundance, shape composition, and major polymer types, but there was no marked relationship between MP abundance and the trophic levels of fish. Expand
Enzyme responses and lipid peroxidation in gills and hepatopancreas of clam Mactra vereformis, following cadmium exposure
To assess the toxicity of heavy metal pollution to marine intertidal shellfish, enzymatic responses and lipid peroxidation were investigated in the clam Mactra vereformis exposed to cadmium underExpand
