A halophilic bacterial consortium that degraded phenanthrene was developed from oil-contaminated saline soil containing 10% salinity. The biodegradation of phenanthrene occurred at 5%, 10%, and 15% salinity, whereas no biodegradation took place at 0.1% and 20% salinity. A 16S rRNA gene analysis showed that all sequences from the denaturing gradient gel(More)
A polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading marine bacterium, designated strain P-4(T), was isolated from oil-polluted saline soil in Xianhe, Shangdong Province, China. Strain P-4(T) was Gram-negative-staining with curved to spiral rod-shaped cells and grew optimally with 3-6 % (w/v) NaCl and at 30 degrees C. The predominant fatty acids were C(18 :(More)
A Gram-negative, aerobic, short rod-shaped and non-motile bacterium, strain A-1(T), was isolated from a saline soil contaminated with crude oil in Xianhe, Shangdong Province, China. Strain A-1(T) formed yellow colonies, was moderately halophilic and grew with 0.05-27.5% (w/v) total salts (optimum 5-8%), at 10-42 °C (optimum 30 °C) and at pH 5.5-9.0 (optimum(More)
The development of acquired drug resistance is the primary cause of chemotherapy failure in the treatment of ovarian cancer. To examine the mechanism underlying Taxol (TAX) resistance in ovarian cancer and attempt to reverse it, the present study induced a TAX‑resistant ovarian cancer cell line SKOV3/TAX using a gradient concentration increment method. The(More)
As a common used and hardly emulsified amorphous thermoplastic, the bisphenol-A polycarbonates were used as the polymer candidate to form a novel monodispersed sub-micrometer mesoporous polymer-silica spheres with full interpenetrating structure. The synthesis procedure was based on a modified sol-gel approach in which the polycarbonate was plasticized in(More)
The performance of copper ion removal using sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and its mixtures with Brij 35, Tween 80 (TW80) and Triton X-100 (TX100) by micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration (MEUF) was investigated. The effects of the molar ratio of nonionic surfactant to SDS on the critical micelle concentration (CMC) of SDS/Brij 35, SDS/TW80 and SDS/TX100, the(More)
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a promising alternative for livestock manure management. This paper presents the experimental results obtained through a batch experiment by using chicken manure (CM) and microalgae Chlorella sp. as co-substrates. The effect of co-digestion was evaluated by varying CM to Chlorella sp. ratios (0:10, 2:8, 4:6, 6:4, 8:2, 10: 0 based(More)
The complexation of zein and propylene glycol alginate (PGA) was confirmed to improve the entrapment efficiency and loading capacity of quercetagetin (Q) in our previous study. The present work focused on the influence and induction mechanism of calcium ions on structures of Q-loaded zein-PGA ternary composite particles. The incorporation of Ca2+ resulted(More)
