This study investigated the residues of four sulfonamides, four quinolones, and four tetracyclines in surface water as well as surficial sediment samples, of Bosten Lake, in Xinjiang, China. The results showed the presence of 10 out of the 12 selected antibiotics in both water and sediment. Lomefloxacin was not detected in any of the samples. Among the 12(More)
Neuritin (also known as candidate plasticity gene 15 (cpg15)) is a neurotrophic factor that was recently discovered in a screen aimed at identifying genes involved in activity-dependent synaptic plasticity. Neuritin plays multiple roles in both neural development (Chen et al. Zhonghua Yan Ke Za Zhi 46:978–983 2010; Corriveau et al. J Neurosci 19:7999-8008(More)
This study investigated the concentrations and distribution of eight sterol compounds in the surface sediments of Bosten Lake and Manas Lake, Xinjiang, China. The ratios of sterols as diagnostic indices were used to identify pollution sources. The sediment of the two lakes was selected as an adsorbent to investigate the adsorption behaviour of sterols.(More)
The occurrence of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and resistant bacteria was quantified in 17 water samples collected across Bosten Lake, Xinjiang, China. The heterotrophic plate count method was used to detect the levels of sulfonamide- and tetracycline-resistant bacteria, which have mean concentrations of 2.50×10(5) and 4.63×10(3) CFU/mL, respectively.(More)
Although perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) have been identified in milk and dairy products in many regions, knowledge on their occurrence in Xinjiang (China) is rare. This study was conducted to measure the levels of PFOA and PFOS in milk and yogurt from Xinjiang and to investigate the average daily intake (ADI) of these two(More)
Based on the adsorption performance of composite microspheres with activated carbon (AC) and sodium alginate (SA), as well as the magnetic property of Fe 3 O 4 , we designed and explored an efficient strategy to prepare a unique, multifunctional Fe 3 O 4 /AC/SA composite absorbent (MSA-AC) that extracted dye from aqueous solution. The composite exhibited(More)
Recently, inhalable particulate matter has been reported to carry microorganisms responsible for human allergy and respiratory disease. The unique geographical environment and adverse weather conditions of Urumqi cause double pollution of dust and smog, but research on the microbial content of the atmosphere has not been commenced. In this study, 16S and(More)
