Cultivation of sugar kelp (Saccharina latissima) along the Norwegian coast. Variations in growth and chemical composition in connection to latitude, season, depth and hatchery treatments
UV degradation of natural and synthetic microfibers causes fragmentation and release of polymer degradation products and chemical additives
A high proportion of the total microplastic (MP) load in the marine environment has been identified as microfibers (MFs), with polyester (PET) and polyamide (PA) typically found in the highest abundance. The potential for negative environmental impacts from MPs may be dependent on their degree of...
Accelerated hydrolysis method for producing partially degraded polyester microplastic fiber reference materials
Microplastic fibers (MPFs) from textiles significantly contribute to the microplastic (MP) load in many environmental matrices and have been shown to negatively impact the organisms therein. Most fate and effect studies to date rely on pristine reference MP materials that have limited relevance...

Targeting OGG1 arrests cancer cell proliferation by inducing replication stress
Abstract Altered oncogene expression in cancer cells causes loss of redox homeostasis resulting in oxidative DNA damage, e.g. 8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG), repaired by base excision repair (BER). PARP1 coordinates BER and relies on the upstream 8-oxoguanine-DNA glycosylase (OGG1) to recognise and excise...
Impact of UV degradation on the fate and potential impact of textile microfibers and their additive chemicals in the marine environment
Microfibers (MFs) are frequently reported as the most dominant type of microplastic (MP) found in the marine water column and sediments. A major source of MFs is the use and washing of textiles. Although WWTPs can remove up to 98% of MP, estimates suggest billions of MP are still released from a...
