Fourteen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in PM(2.5) and PM(2.5-10) samples collected in five cities (Shenyang, Anshan, Jinzhou, Fushun and Dalian), Liaoning Province, China in 2004 and 2005 were analyzed by using a HPLC equipped with fluorescence and UV detectors. Results showed total PAHs concentrations in PM(2.5) and PM(2.5-10) were in the range(More)
Atmospheric particulate matter (PM(2.5), PM(10) and TSP) were sampled synchronously during three monitoring campaigns from June 2007 to February 2008 at a coastal site in TEDA of Tianjin, China. Chemical compositions including 19 elements, 6 water-solubility ions, organic and elemental carbon were determined. principle components analysis (PCA) and chemical(More)
PM10 samples were collected at six sampling sites in city center of Tianjin from April 2008 to January 2009. The concentrations of 17 selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in PM10 were quantified. Spatial and seasonal variations of PAHs were characterized. The dominant PAHs in PM10 samples were fluoranthene, pyrene, benz[a] anthracene,(More)
The emission factors and compositions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in exhaust gas from in-use gasoline passenger cars were characterized using a chassis dynamometer. Three passenger cars were tested at the ECE and the EUDC drive cycles to represent both urban and suburban driving scenarios. Exhaust gas was collected in Summa canisters and analyzed by(More)
This study presents the first analysis of expressed transcripts in the spermary and ovary of Hyriopsis schlegelii (H. schlegelii). A total of 132,055 unigenes were obtained and 31,781 of these genes were annotated. In addition, 19,511 upregulated and 25,911 downregulated unigenes were identified in the spermary. Ten sex-determination genes were selected and(More)
In this study, concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) associated with PM10 were measured to examine the status, characteristics and sources of atmospheric PAH pollution in the industrial Northeast Region of China. Mean concentrations of total PAHs were 65.5, 40.0, 73.0 and 436.7 ngm 3 in the four seasons respectively. The calculated BaPeq(More)
Two metallothionein genes (HsMT1 and HsMT2) were first identified and described from Hyriopsis schlegelii. The open reading frame of HsMT1 and HsMT2 were 216 and 222 bp, encoding a protein of 71 and 73 amino acid residues. The deduced amino acid sequences showed they contained parts of typical MT characteristics, apart from HsMT2 lacked Cys-Cys motifs. The(More)
Volatile organic compounds( VOCs) from cooking can affect air quality indoor and outdoor. The compositions of VOCs from cooking in the Northeast Area of China were investigated by using the method of pre-concentration-GC-MS. The average mass concentration of VOCs from cooking was 3407.06&#x00B1;889.5 &#x00B5;g.m<sup>&#x2212;3</sup>, which is 1.7 times of(More)
We cloned the full-length cDNA of ZP2 from Carassius auratus var. Pingxiangnensis (CaP_ZP2) and identified a cluster of three ZP genes through its DNA walker. These three genes, CaP_ZP3.1, CaP_ZP2 and CaP_ZP3.2 were located within a 10,855bp region and each comprised of eight exons spanning 1348bp, 1638bp and 1348bp, respectively. Protein bands of egg(More)
Topmouth culter (C. alburnus) is an important commercial fish in China. We compared the nucleotide variations in the mtDNA genomes among three geographical groups of Culter alburnus: Liangzi Lake, Hubei Province (referred to as LZH); Taihu Lake, Jiangsu Province (TH); and Poyang Lake, Jiangxi Province (PYH). The similarity of whole mtDNA genomes ranged from(More)
