- Recombinational micro-evolution of functionally different metallothionein promoter alleles from Orchesella cinctaThierry K S Janssens
Vrije Universiteit, Institute of Ecological Sciences, Department of Animal Ecology, De Boelelaan 1085, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
BMC Evol Biol 7:88. 2007....
- Adaptive differences in gene expression associated with heavy metal tolerance in the soil arthropod Orchesella cinctaDick Roelofs
Institute of Ecological Science, VU University Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Mol Ecol 18:3227-39. 2009..We confirmed the micro-evolutionary processes occurring in soil arthropod populations and suggest a major contribution of gene regulation to the evolution of a stress-adapted phenotype...
- Micro-evolution of toxicant tolerance: from single genes to the genome's tangled bankNico M Van Straalen
Department of Ecological Science, VU University, De Boelelaan 1085, 1081 HV Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Ecotoxicology 20:574-9. 2011..These data, added to a genome-wide gene expression profiling study reported earlier shows that evolution of tolerance takes place in a complicated molecular network, not unlike an internal tangled bank...
- Comparative population analysis of metallothionein promoter alleles suggests stress-induced microevolution in the fieldThierry K S Janssens
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences, Institute of Ecological Science, Department of Animal Ecology, De Boelelaan 1085, 1081 HV Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Environ Sci Technol 42:3873-8. 2008..Our results illustrate that environmental factors can exert selection on promoter polymorphisms and cause adaptation through altered transcriptional regulation...
- Combined Transcriptomics Analysis for Classification of Adverse Effects As a Potential End Point in Effect Based ScreeningTjalf E de Boer
Amsterdam Global Change Institute, VU University Amsterdam, De Boelelaan 1085, 1081 HV Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Environ Sci Technol 49:14274-81. 2015..This gene set has the potential to be used as a biomarker to test for adverse effects caused by chemicals in springtails to provide end points in environmental risk assessment. ..
