One hundred and four surface samples and 40 profiles samples in agricultural soils collected from Huizhou in south-east China were monitored for total contents of 8 heavy metals, and analyzed by multivariate statistical techniques and enrichment factor (EF), in order to investigate their origins. The results indicate that the concentrations of Cu, Zn, Ni,(More)
In the present study, we show that the treatment of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latently infected Raji cells with TPA/SB caused the cell growth arrest. The Zta-positive cells were predominantly enriched in G0/G1 phase of cell cycle. When Zta expression reached a maximal level, a fraction of Zta expressing cell population reentered S phase. Analysis of the(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of exogenous urea nitrogen on ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and other soil bacterial communities in soil bioaugmented for simazine remediation. The previously isolated simazine-degrading Arthrobacter sp. strain SD1 was used to degrade the herbicide. The effect of urea on the simazine degradation(More)
Geometry processing in CAD proposes rigorous requirements on mesh quality. In this paper an integrated triangular mesh optimization method is proposed. Edge marking function and local edge operations are used to improve the vertex sampling. Modified weighted centroidal Voronoi tessellation is employed to regularize the triangle geometry. A simulated(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) replication and transcription activator (Rta) is an immediate-early transcription factor that mediates the switch from latent to lytic infection. DNA viruses often modulate the function of critical cell cycle proteins to maximize the efficiency of virus replication. Here we have examined the effect of Rta on cell cycle progression.(More)
Nitrite-dependent anaerobic methane oxidation (n-damo) process can play an important role in the methane mitigation in the environment. However, the distribution of n-damo organisms in freshwater sediment ecosystem and the associated environmental factors remain essentially unclear. The present study investigated the temporal and spatial dynamics of(More)
Both bacteria and archaeal communities can play important roles in biogeochemical processes in constructed wetland (CW) system. However, the influence of plant type on microbial community in surface water CW remains unclear. The present study investigated bacterial and archaeal communities in five surface water CW systems with different plant species. The(More)
There has been limited research investigating how the mechanisms of aggregation of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) are affected by inorganic ions. In this study, Na+, Mg2+, Ca2+, Sr2+ and Ba2+ were selected to systematically study the aggregation mechanisms of Fe3O4 MNPs. The results indicated that divalent cations more significantly affected the stabilities(More)
