Efficient design and assembly of custom TALEN and other TAL effector-based constructs for DNA targeting
TLDR
A method and reagents for efficiently assembling TALEN constructs with custom repeat arrays are presented and design guidelines based on naturally occurring TAL effectors and their binding sites are described. Expand
Potentially toxic metal contamination of urban soils and roadside dust in Shanghai, China.
TLDR
Pb, Zn and Cu mainly originated from traffic contaminants; soil Ni was associated with natural concentration; Cd largely came from point-sourced industrial pollution; and Cr, Ni in dust were mainly related to atmospheric deposition. Expand
The Brassica oleracea genome reveals the asymmetrical evolution of polyploid genomes
TLDR
A draft genome sequence of Brassica oleracea is described, comparing it with that of its sister species B. rapa to reveal numerous chromosome rearrangements and asymmetrical gene loss in duplicated genomic blocks. Expand
Trends in the occurrence of human and veterinary antibiotics in the sediments of the Yellow River, Hai River and Liao River in northern China.
TLDR
Good fitted linear regression equations between antibiotic concentration and sediment physicochemical properties (TOC, texture and pH) were found, indicating that sediment properties are important factors influencing the distribution of antibiotics in the sediment of rivers. Expand
Occurrence and risks of triclosan and triclocarban in the Pearl River system, South China: from source to the receiving environment.
TLDR
The mass inventories of TCS and TCC in the Pearl River system indicate that the sediments are not only an important sink but also a potential source for the two compounds in surface water. Expand
Simultaneous determination and assessment of 4-nonylphenol, bisphenol A and triclosan in tap water, bottled water and baby bottles.
TLDR
Exposure to the three compounds from drinking water is unlikely to pose a health risk, according to this study. Expand
Melatonin promotes seed germination under high salinity by regulating antioxidant systems, ABA and GA4 interaction in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)
TLDR
New evidence is provided suggesting that melatonin alleviates the inhibitory effects of NaCl stress on germination mainly by regulating the biosynthesis and catabolism of ABA and GA4. Expand
Electromagnetic field treatment protects against and reverses cognitive impairment in Alzheimer's disease mice.
TLDR
It is concluded that EMF exposure may represent a non-invasive, non-pharmacologic therapeutic against Alzheimer's disease and an effective memory-enhancing approach in general. Expand
Distribution and accumulation of endocrine-disrupting chemicals and pharmaceuticals in wastewater irrigated soils in Hebei, China.
TLDR
Investigation of the occurrence of 43 emerging contaminants including 9 endocrine-disrupting chemicals and 34 pharmaceuticals in Hebei Province, north China found that triclocarban might pose high risks to terrestrial organisms while the other detected compounds posed minimal risks. Expand
Influence of biochars on plant uptake and dissipation of two pesticides in an agricultural soil.
TLDR
Biochar BC850 was found to be effective in reducing the bioavailability of both pesticides from the soil and could be applied to sequester pesticide residues in contaminated soils and to reduce plant uptake. Expand
