Occurrence of five estrogens, including estrone (E1), 17β-estradiol (E2), estriol (E3), 17α-ethynylestradiol (EE2) and bisphenol A (BPA) in water, sediment and biota in Northern Taihu Lake, were investigated and their ecological risk was evaluated. Most of the target estrogens were widely distributed in the eight studied sampling sites, and their levels(More)
RATIONALE Subjective craving, which contributes to the continuation of drug use in active abuser and the occurrence of relapse in detoxified abusers, is considered to be a central phenomenon in addiction. Dopamine pathway has been implicated in the mechanism underlying the cue-elicited craving for a variety of addictive substances. OBJECTIVES The(More)
Adsorption behavior of 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2) in northern Taihu Lake sediment was analyzed by using batch equilibrium experiment. Freundlich isotherm could describe the adsorption thermodynamic behavior of EE2 in sediment. Sediment organic matter (SOM) contents had important impacts on the adsorption capacity for EE2. The pH values also influenced the(More)
OBJECTIVE To study on the chemical constituents of Lobelia chinensis. METHOD The coloumn chromatographic techniques were applied to isolate constituents, and their structures were elucidated by means of spectral data analysis. RESULT Sixteen compounds were isolated and identified as daucosterol (1), diosmetin (2), apigenin (3), chrysoeriol (4), loteolin(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the level of malondiadehyde (MDA), antisuperoxide anion and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in liver of rats poisoned by nickel carbonyl in order to discuss the mechanism of acute nickel carbonyl poisoning. METHODS Healthy SD rats were intoxicated acutely by different concentrations of nickel carbonyl (20, 135 and 250mg/m3(More)
A novel micro-solid-phase extraction (μ-SPE) device coupled with ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS-MS) was established to determine five typical estrogens in aqueous samples. Zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8) as sorbent was packed in polypropylene membrane to construct the μ-SPE device. Important(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the change of Na(+)-K+ ATPase activity and the expressions of Na(+)-K+ ATPase alpha1 mRNA in lung tissues of rats poisoned by nickel carbonyl and to discuss the mechanism of lung injury. METHODS One hundred seventy healthy rats (85 male and 85 female) were exposed by inhalation of 20,135 and 250 mg/m3 nickel carbonyl for 30 min. Rats(More)
The 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) toxicity has large species differences, and TCDD exerts its toxicity by binding into aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR). In this study, we applied bioinformatics approaches to quantitatively analyze the correlation between TCDD acute toxicity and AHRs. Seven mammalian AHRs were chosen as target receptors. Low(More)
