The overuse of antibiotics has accelerated antibiotic resistance in the natural environment, especially fresh water, generating a potential risk for public health around the world. In this study, antibiotic resistance in Lake Taihu was investigated and this was the first thorough data obtained through culture-dependent methods. High percentages of(More)
Echinostoma hortense (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) is one of the intestinal flukes with medical importance in humans. However, the mitochondrial (mt) genome of this fluke has not been known yet. The present study has determined the complete mt genome sequences of E. hortense and assessed the phylogenetic relationships with other digenean species for which the(More)
Fasciola hepatica is a helminth parasite with a worldwide distribution, which can cause chronic liver disease, fasciolosis, leading to economic losses in the livestock and public health in many countries. Control is mostly reliant on the use of drugs, and as a result, drug resistance has now emerged. The identification of F. hepatica genes involved in(More)
An aerobic bacterial strain M11 capable of degrading dibutyl phthalate (DBP) was isolated and identified as Camelimonas sp. This strain could not grow on dialkyl phthalates, including dimethyl, diethyl, dipropyl, dibutyl and dipentyl phthalate, but suspensions of cells could transform these compounds to phthalate via corresponding monoalkyl phthalates. The(More)
We investigated the proteomic and physiological responses of the bloom-forming cyanobacterium, Microcystis aeruginosa, to nitrogen (N) starvation, phosphorus (P) starvation, and the simultaneous starvation of N and P. Our results suggested that M. aeruginosa could maintain nearly normal growth under P starvation for at least 7 days, whereas N deficiency(More)
