L.vannamei DEGs under acid stress
Litopenaeus vannamei Transcriptome under acid and alkline stresses. To understand the molecular mechanism of crustacean responses to low pH, we used RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) and investigated expression changes in whole gill transcriptomes of L. vannamei. We compared gill transcriptome of adult L. vannamei challenged by low pH (pH= 6.8) and a nonchallenged control group (pH= 8.0) at 1 h and 48 h, by using the Illumina HiSeq 4000 platform. This is the first study addressing the molecular response of the gills of L. vannamei to low pH stress at the whole-transcriptome level.
