Uncovering the metabolic response of abalone (Haliotis midae) to environmental hypoxia through metabolomics
Introduction Oxygen is essential for metabolic processes and in the absence thereof alternative metabolic pathways are required for energy production, as seen in marine invertebrates like abalone. Even though hypoxia has ...
Metabolomics reveals the depletion of intracellular metabolites in HepG2 cells after treatment with gold nanoparticles
(Taylor & Francis, 2018)
Studies on the safety of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) are plentiful due to their successful application in drug delivery and treatment of diseases in trials. Cytotoxicity caused by GNPs has been studied on the physiological ...
Abalone growth and associated aspects: now from a metabolic perspective
Worldwide, there are approximately 100 Haliotis species, more commonly known as abalone or ‘Paua’ in New Zealand, ‘Venus's‐ears’ in Greece, ‘Awabi’ in Japan, ‘Perlemoen’ in South Africa and ‘Ormers’ in Europe. Regardless ...
Systemic and organ specific metabolic variation in metallothionein knockout mice challenged with swimming exercise
Metallothioneins (MTs) are ubiquitous, multifunctional proteins with key roles in metal homeostasis and redox regulation. Their involvement in cellular energy metabolism is evident from the observation that metallothi ...
Characterising the metabolic differences related to growth variation in farmed Haliotis midae
The South African abalone farming industry is entirely based on Haliotis midae, which has been commercially cultured with great success the last 20 years. Even though abalone are cultivated under identical farming conditions, ...
