Advances in the understanding of the endogenous cannabinoid system have led to several therapeutic indications for new classes of compounds that enhance cannabinergic responses. Endocannabinoid levels are elevated during pathogenic conditions, and inhibitors of endocannabinoid inactivation promote such on-demand responses. The endocannabinoids anandamide(More)
In the present study, two of the most toxic bacterial strains of Bacillus sphaericus against mosquito were identified with the most recent genetic techniques. The PCR product profiles indicated the presence of genes encoding Bin A, Bin B and Mtx1 in all analyzed strains; they are consistent with protein profiles. The preliminary bioinformatics analysis of(More)
Nitrification at a full-scale activated sludge plant treating municipal wastewater was monitored over a period of 237 days. A combination of fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) were used for identifying and quantifying the dominant nitrifiers in the plant. Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system(More)
Artificial streams were set up to test the relationship between near-bed water velocity and periphyton growth. Periphyton community samples collected from a Japanese stream were incubated for 44 days under a light intensity of 252 ± 72 µmol·photons/m 2 ·s, a temperature of 20–25 • C, and three near-bed water velocity classes: low (<17.9 cm/s), moderate(More)
Agricultural drainage water could be a source of water for irrigation in Egypt. A case study of an agricultural drainage water near El-Dare region – and median a performance evaluation for this agricultural drainage water resource performed. In Egypt, Water quality standards have been developed governing the treatment of agricultural drainage water. The(More)
In this study, hydrogen production from starch wastewater using anaerobic sludge immobilized on maghemite nanoparticles (γ-Fe2O3) was investigated. Two anaerobic baffled reactors (ABR-1 and ABR-2) were operated at organic loading rate (OLR) of 3.63±0.43 g-COD/L.d and hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 10 h. The ABR-1 was inoculated with 3.5 g-VSS/L preheated(More)
