Suppressive subtractive hybridization libraries prepared from the digestive gland of the oyster Crassostrea brasiliana exposed to a diesel fuel water‐accommodated fraction

Diesel fuel can cause adverse effects in marine invertebrates by mechanisms that are not clearly understood. The authors used suppressive subtractive hybridization to identify genes up‐ and downregulated in Crassostrea brasiliana exposed to diesel fuel. Genes putatively involved in protein regulation, innate immune, and stress response, were altered by diesel challenge. Three genes regulated by diesel were validated by quantitative real‐time polymerase chain reaction. This study sheds light on transcriptomic responses of oysters to diesel pollution. Environ.
