Environmental stress proteomics-investigating the effects of heavy metal pollution and ocean acidification in agriculturally important marine species
thesisposted on 2022-03-28, 15:44 authored by Sridevi Muralidharan
This thesis is aimed at furthering our understanding of the biological impacts in important marine species of two environmental issues facing Australia - heavy metal pollution from anthropogenic activities and ocean acidification from increasing carbon dioxide levels. The effects of these stressors were explored by investigating the stress responses in agriculturally important aquatic marine animals, such as oysters and amphipods, using quantitative proteomics. We demonstrated the usefulness of labeled as well as label-free proteomics approaches in gaining insight of such environmental stresses in these animals at the cellular and molecular level.
