Ocean acidification (OA) has important effects on intrinsic phenotypic characteristics (i.e., calcification, metabolic activity, immune system) of many marine organisms. Concomitantly, OA can alter the extended phenotypes of these organisms by perturbing the structure and function of their associated microbiomes. It is unclear, however, the extent...
Article
The increase of CO2 by anthropogenic activities leads to a decrease of pH in the ocean surface due to ocean acidification (OA) process. Generally, OA not only reduces the rate of calcification in marine environments but also affects various physiological activities, especially in calcifiers, including edible oysters. Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT...
Article
The majority of common edible oysters are projected to grow more slowly and have smaller impaired shells because of anthropogenic CO2 -induced reductions in seawater carbonate ion concentration and pH, a process called ocean acidification (OA). Recent evidence has shown that OA has carryover effects, for example, larvae exposed to OA will also exhi...
Article
Unprecedented rate of increased CO2 level in the ocean and the subsequent changes in carbonate system including decreased pH, known as ocean acidification (OA), is predicted to disrupt not only the calcification process but also several other physiological and developmental processes in a variety of marine organisms, including edible oysters. Nonet...

Crassostrea hongkongensis (Hong Kong oyster) is an ecologically and economically valuable shellfish endemic to South/Southeast Asia. Due to ocean acidification and warming waters, they have become increasingly vulnerable to invading microbes including Vibrio parahaemolyticus, a significant foodborne human pathogen. In recent years, outbreaks of V....

Background The veined rapa whelk Rapana venosa is an important commercial shellfish in China and quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) has become the standard method to study gene expression in R. venosa . For accurate and reliable gene expression results, qRT-PCR assays require housekeeping genes as internal controls, which display highly uniform e...
