Seasonal monitoring of cellular energy metabolism in a sentinel species, Dreissena polymorpha (bivalve): Effect of global change?

Abstract : Aquatic organisms such as bivalves are particularly sensitive to seasonal fluctuations associated with climate changes. Energy metabolism management is also closely related to environmental fluctuations. Changes in both biotic and abiotic conditions, such as the reproduction status and temperature respectively, may affect the organism energy status. A bivalve sentinel species, Dreissena polymorpha was sampled along its one-year reproduction cycle in situ (2018–2019) to study natural modulations on several markers of energy metabolism regarding seasonal variations in situ. A panel of different processes involved in energy metabolism was monitored through different functions such as energy balance regulation, mitochondrial density, and aerobic/anaerobic metabolism. The typical schema expected was observed in a major part of measured responses. However, the monitored population of D. polymorpha showed signs of metabolism disturbances caused by an external stressor from April 2019. Targeting a major part of energy metabolism functions, a global analysis of responses suggested a putative impact on the mitochondrial respiratory chain due to potential pollution. This study highlighted also the particular relevance of in situ monitoring to investigate the impacts of environmental change on sentinel species.
