Removal of heavy metal ions from wastewaters: a review.
  • Fenglian Fu, Qi Wang
  • Environmental Science, Medicine
  • Journal of environmental management
  • 1 March 2011
It is evident from the literature survey articles that ion-exchange, adsorption and membrane filtration are the most frequently studied for the treatment of heavy metal wastewater. Expand
Genome Sequencing of Pediatric Medulloblastoma Links Catastrophic DNA Rearrangements with TP53 Mutations
The whole-genome sequencing-based analysis of a Sonic-Hedgehog medulloblastoma brain tumor from a patient with a germline TP53 mutation is reported, uncovering massive, complex chromosome rearrangements and connecting p53 status and chromothripsis in specific tumor types. Expand

  • 6 February 2013
The combined population genetics and network analyses suggest that DTH2 likely represents a target of human selection for adaptation to LD conditions during rice domestication and/or improvement, demonstrating an important role of minor-effect quantitative trait loci in crop adaptation and breeding.

Heritability and Genomics of Gene Expression in Peripheral Blood
Gen expression profiles in 2,752 twins were assessed, using a classic twin design, to quantify expression heritability and quantitative trait loci (eQTLs) in peripheral blood, providing a new resource toward understanding the genetic control of transcription. Expand
Microencapsulation of Bacteriophage Felix O1 into Chitosan-Alginate Microspheres for Oral Delivery
The current encapsulation technique enables a large proportion of bacteriophage Felix O1 to remain bioactive in a simulated gastrointestinal tract environment, which indicates that these microspheres may facilitate delivery of therapeutic phage to the gut. Expand
The current situation of solid waste management in China
With economic development, the quantity of solid waste is increasing rapidly in China; the total quantities of municipal solid waste (MSW), industrial solid waste (ISW), and hazardous waste (HW) inExpand
Structural analysis of the GGDEF-EAL domain-containing c-di-GMP receptor FimX.
A model for full-length FimX was generated combining solution scattering data and crystal structures of the degenerate GGDEF and EAL domains, providing the structural basis for c-di-GMP sensing via degenerate phosphodiesterases. Expand
Emergence of a hypervirulent carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae isolate from clinical infections in China.
The newly emerged hypervirulent carbapenem-resistant K. pneumoniae might cause a serious threat to public health, suggesting an urgent need to enhance clinical awareness and epidemiologic surveillance. Expand
Genomics-guided discovery of thailanstatins A, B, and C As pre-mRNA splicing inhibitors and antiproliferative agents from Burkholderia thailandensis MSMB43.
In vitro assays showed that thailanstatins inhibit pre-mRNA splicing as potently as 4, with half-maximal inhibitory concentrations in the single to sub-μM range. Expand
Synchrotron-based infrared and X-ray imaging shows focalized accumulation of Cu and Zn co-localized with beta-amyloid deposits in Alzheimer's disease.
A strong spatial correlation has been observed between elevated beta-sheet content in Abeta plaques and accumulated Cu and Zn ions, emphasizing an association of metal ions with amyloid formation in AD. Expand
