Identification and expression of proteolysis-response genes for Macrophthalmus japonicus exposure to irgarol toxicity

Kiyun Park, Chamilani Nikapitiya and Ihn-Sil Kwak

M. japonicas is one of the most abundant macrobenthic animals in estuarine zone.

We performed de novo transcriptome sequencing to produce the most comprehensive EST resource for M. japonicas.

We identified stress response genes in M. japonicus exposed to antifouling biocides irgarol.

A total of 887,690 reads were obtained, which were assembled into 24,217 high quality ESTs using 454 pyrosequencing.

Irgarol toxicity induced up-regulation of proteolysis and oxidation-reduction genes in biological process.
