In China, mechanical collection of cyanoblooms followed by soil-based treatments has been widely used as emergency strategies in many eutrophicated freshwaters. This study was to evaluate both efficiencies and potential risks of typical soil-based technologies. Results from this study indicated that over 90% of cyanobacterial biomass and 96% of dissolved(More)
BACKGROUND To assess the therapeutic outcome and failure pattern of three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT)-based concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) for recurrence of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) after radical surgery. METHODS Treatment outcome and failure pattern were retrospectively evaluated in 83 patients with localized cervical(More)
Regulator of G protein signaling 5 (RGS5) belongs to the R4 subfamily of RGS proteins, a family of GTPase activating proteins, which is dynamically regulated in various biological processes including blood pressure regulation, smooth muscle cell pathology, fat metabolism and tumor angiogenesis. Low-expression of RGS5 was reported to be associated with tumor(More)
Long-term interannual (1991-2013) and monthly (1999-2013) data were analyzed to elucidate the effects of meteorological factors and nutrient levels on phytoplankton biomass in the cyanobacteria-dominated Waihai basin of Lake Dianchi. The interannual ln(chl. a) exhibited positive correlations with the mean air temperature, mean minimum air temperature, and(More)
To learn the relationship between sunlight intensity and cyanobacterial proliferations for the further control of the heavy blooms, enclosure experiment were conducted in Meiliang Bay, Lake Taihu by regulating the natural light intensities with different shading ratio (0% (full sunlight), 10%, 25%, 50% and 75% of original natural sunlight intensities) from(More)
In this study, we re-identified the hosts of cyanophage PP. Twenty-three candidate algal strains were tested, and the results indicated that seven strains belonging to Plectonema and Phormidium are the hosts of cyanophage PP, including two previously reported filamentous cyanobacteria, Plectonema boryanum and Phormidium foveolarum (Zhao et al. 2002).(More)
The succession amongst different cyanobacteria genera remains understudied and poorly understood as much of the focus has been on mono-specific blooms. The spring–summer succession between Aphanizomenon flos-aquae and Microcystis and its underlying mechanism were investigated from 2009 to 2012 in hypereutrophic Dianchi Lake in China. Regularly, A.(More)
BACKGROUND Hypoxic tumor cells can reduce the efficacy of radiation. Antiangiogenic therapy may transiently "normalize" the tumor vasculature to make it more efficient for oxygen delivery. The aim of this study is to investigate whether the recombinant human endostatin (endostar) can create a "vascular normalization window" to alleviate hypoxia and enhance(More)
The concentration, light conditions during treatment, and the number of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) additions as well as the H2O2 treatment combined with subsequent shading to control algal blooms were studied in the field (Lake Dianchi, China). The cyanobacterial stress and injury due to H2O2 were dose dependent, and the control effectiveness and degradation(More)
The present study demonstrates that the ratio of fluorescence integration of peak C to peak T (IC:IT) can be used as an indicator tracing the compositional dynamics of chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM). CDOM absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy and stable isotope δ13C were determined on a seasonal basis in seventeen Chinese inland waters as(More)
