Phenol is a ubiquitous organic contaminant in drinking water. Biodegradation plays an important role in the elimination of phenol pollution in the environment, but the information about phenol removal by drinking water biofilters is still lacking. Herein, we study an acclimated bacterial community that can degrade over 80% of 300 mg/L phenol within 3 days.(More)

To gain insight into the bacterial dynamics present in drinking water treatment (DWT) systems, the microbial community and activity in a full-scale DWT plant (DWTP) in Guangzhou, South China, were investigated using Illumina Hiseq sequencing analyses combined with cultivation-based techniques during the wet and dry seasons. Illumina sequencing analysis of(More)
Corticision is a common technique to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement; however, not much is known about the underlying mechanisms. In this study, we investigated the mechanism of alveolar tissue remodeling after corticision in a rat model of tooth movement (TM) by analyzing the differential transcriptome. A total of 36 male rats were equally divided(More)
We developed a new efficient method for the synthesis of important indoxyl glycoside substrates for β-glucosidase and β-galactosidase by using 1-acetylindol-3-ones as intermediates. This method was used to synthesise novel precipitating fluorogenic substrates for β-glucosidase based on 2-(benzothiazol-2'-yl)-phenols. We also assessed the application of(More)
The goal of this study was to identify Cd-resistant bacterial strains with endurance capacity and to evaluate their ability to remove cadmium ions from cadmium-polluted water. The Bacillus cereusS5 strain identified in this study had the closest genetic relationship with B. cereus sp. Cp1 and performed well in the removal of Cd2+ions from solution. The(More)
Phenol is a hazardous chemical known to be widely distributed in aquatic environments. Biodegradation is an attractive option for removal of phenol from water sources. Acinetobacter sp. DW-1 isolated from drinking water biofilters can use phenol as a sole carbon and energy source. In this study, we found that Immobilized Acinetobacter sp. DW-1cells were(More)
