A systematic survey of As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn concentrations in vegetables from 416 samples (involving 100 varieties) in Beijing was carried out for assessing the potential health risk to local inhabitants. The results indicated that the metal concentrations in vegetables ranged from < 0.001 to 0.479 microg/g fresh weight (fw) (As), < 0.001 to 0.101(More)
Soil in metropolitan region suffers great contamination risk due to the rapid urbanization especially in developing countries. Beijing and Tianjin, together with their surrounding regions, form a mega-metropolitan region in northern China. To assess the soil environmental quality, a total of 458 surface soil samples were collected from this area.(More)
The responses of activities, abundances and community structures of soil denitrifiers to mercury (Hg) stress were investigated through a short-term incubation experiment. Four soil treatments with different concentrations of Hg (CK, Hg25, Hg50, and Hg 100, denoted as 0, 25, 50, and 100 mg Hg/kg dry soil, respectively) were incubated for 28 days. Soil(More)
Surface soil samples were collected from 52 sites around Guanting Reservoir in Beijing, China, and contents of 'total' metals (Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, As, Ni and Cr) were determined. The results indicate that the degree of heavy metal pollution in the soils declines in the order of Cd>Cr>Zn>As>Cu>Ni>Pb. Based on the results of a combination of multivariate(More)
Protocol-Oblivious Forwarding (POF) is an enhancement to Open Flow-based SDN forwarding architecture. In this paper, we proposed a basic POF Flow Instruction Set (POF-FIS) which can be used to edit and forward packets as designed on the controller side. Working on the southbound interface of SDN, POF-FIS is independent of target platforms and northbound(More)
The soil microbial community in reclaimed mining areas is fundamental to vegetative establishment. However, how this community responds to different regeneration scenarios and fertilizer treatments is poorly understood. This research evaluated plant and soil microbial communities from different regeneration scenarios and different fertilizer treatments.(More)
Quinoxaline-1,4-dioxides (QdNOs) are a class of quinoxaline derivatives that are widely used in humans or animals as drugs or feed additives. However, the metabolic mechanism, especially the involved enzymes, has not been reported in detail. In this study, the N-oxide reduction enzyme, porcine aldehyde oxidase SsAOX1 was identified and characterized. The(More)
