Increasing soil pollution problems have caused world-wide concerns. Large numbers of contaminants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), petroleum and related products, pesticides, chlorophenols and heavy metals enter the soil, posing a huge threat to human health and natural ecosystem. Chemical and physical technologies for soil remediation are(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the relative contribution of ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) and bacteria (AOB) to nitrification during agricultural waste composting. The AOA and AOB amoA gene abundance and composition were determined by quantitative PCR and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), respectively. The results showed that the(More)
Historically, the Mongol Empire ranks among the world's largest contiguous empires, and the Mongolians developed their unique lifestyle and diet over thousands of years. In this study, the intestinal microbiota of Mongolians residing in Ulan Bator, TUW province and the Khentii pasturing area were studied using 454 pyrosequencing and q-PCR technology. We(More)
The present research was performed to clarify the changes of denitrifying genes (nirK, nirS, and nosZ) abundances under different physico-chemical parameters through evaluating the relationships between the genes abundances and parameters during agricultural waste composting. The genes abundances were determined by real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR). The(More)
The goal of this study was to identify and prioritize some of the physico-chemical parameters that contributed to bacterial and fungal community compositions during agricultural waste composting. Relationships between those parameters and microbial community compositions determined by PCR-DGGE were simultaneously evaluated by redundancy analysis (RDA). The(More)
Traditional fermented dairy products are major components of the typical Mongolian diet since ancient times. However, almost all the previous studies on the microbial composition of traditional Mongolian fermented dairy products analyzed food samples from the Chinese Mongolian region and Mongolia but not the Russian Mongolian region. In this study, the(More)
The effect of inoculation times on the enzyme activities during agricultural waste composting was determined. Four runs were used: without inoculation (Run A), inoculation with Phanerochaete chrysosporium (P. chrysosporium) during the first fermentation phase (Run B), inoculation during the second fermentation phase (Run C) and inoculation during both the(More)
Compound microsatellites consisting of two or more repeats in close proximity have been found in eukaryotic genomes. So far such compound microsatellites have not been investigated in any prokaryotic genomes. We have therefore examined compound microsatellites in 22 complete genomes of Escherichia coli, which is one of the ideal model organisms to analyze(More)
Feasibility of bioleaching combining with Fenton-like reaction to remove heavy metals from sewage sludge was investigated. After 5-day bioleaching, the sludge pH decreased from 6.95 to 2.50, which satisfied the acidic conditions for Fenton-like reaction. Meanwhile, more than 50% of sludge-borne heavy metals were dissolved except for Pb. The bioleached(More)
The fabrication and evaluation of a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) modified with self-doped polyaniline nanofibers (SPAN)/mesoporous carbon nitride (MCN) and bismuth for simultaneous determination of trace Cd2+ and Pb2+ by square wave anodic stripping voltammetry (SWASV) are presented here. The morphology properties of SPAN and MCN were characterized by(More)
