We investigated the proteomic and physiological responses of the bloom-forming cyanobacterium, Microcystis aeruginosa, to nitrogen (N) starvation, phosphorus (P) starvation, and the simultaneous starvation of N and P. Our results suggested that M. aeruginosa could maintain nearly normal growth under P starvation for at least 7 days, whereas N deficiency(More)
The average COD, TN, TP, and NH4(+)-N elimination rates in a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) based on a modified A2/O process were 83%, 72.4%, 93.5%, and 98.6%, respectively, even under conditions of a low C/N ratio and low temperature. Among the four potential denitrifying units, the post-anoxic unit was the least efficient with respect to the(More)
The overuse of antibiotics has accelerated antibiotic resistance in the natural environment, especially fresh water, generating a potential risk for public health around the world. In this study, antibiotic resistance in Lake Taihu was investigated and this was the first thorough data obtained through culture-dependent methods. High percentages of(More)
Annually occurred cyanobacterial bloom aggravated eutrophication situation and changed the lacustrine ecosystem components. Recently, high concentration of bloom cyanobacteria had been found to accelerate total nitrogen (TN) removal. However, the contribution of cyanobacterial bloom to TN removal remained unclear. In this study, microcosms with different(More)
