Nitrite-dependent anaerobic methane oxidation (N-DAMO) is a recently discovered process linking the global carbon and nitrogen cycles. This process was reported to be mediated by “Candidatus Methylomirabilis oxyfera”. To date, M. oxyfera-like bacteria have been detected in a limited number of freshwater habitats, but whether these bacteria occur in(More)
Ammonia-oxidising archaea (AOA) are increasingly recognised as the primary mediators of soil ammonia oxidation, particularly in acidic soils. To explore the niche segregation of AOA and ammonia-oxidising bacteria (AOB) and the potential effect of this segregation on nitrification rates and the nitrogen cycle in Chinese agricultural soils, AOA and AOB amoA(More)
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV- 6), which belongs to the betaherpesvirus subfamily and infects mainly T cells in vitro, causes acute and latent infections. HHV- 6 contains two genes (U12 and U51) that encode putative homologs of cellular G-protein-coupled receptors (GCR), while three other betaherpesviruses, human cytomegalovirus, murine cytomegalovirus, and(More)
Three activated sludges from a landfill leachate treatment plant (S1), a municipal sewage treatment plant (S2) and a monosodium glutamate (MSG) wastewater treatment plant (S3) were used as inocula to enrich anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) bacteria for the startup of MSG industrial wastewater treatment system. After 360 days of cultivation using MSG(More)
The performance of anaerobic reactor for simultaneous sulfide and nitrate removal under substrate shock loading was studied. The response to the shock loading could be divided into three stages i.e. disturbance, inertial and recovery periods. The effect of the shock loading was directly proportional to the intensity of the shock loads. The reactor(More)
The effect of nitrate and nitrite as electron acceptors on the performance of anaerobic sulfide oxidizing process (ASO process) was investigated. For nitrate-ASO process, the maximum influent nitrogen concentration was lower than that in nitrite-ASO process, but the maximum influent sulfur concentration was higher than that of nitrite-ASO process. The half(More)
The toxicity of four volatile fatty acids (VFAs) as anaerobic digestion (AD) intermediates was investigated at pH 7. Photobacterium phosphoreum T3 was used as an indicator organism. Binary, ternary and mixtures of AD intermediates were designated by letters A (acetic acid + propionic acid), B (acetic acid + butyric acid), C (acetic acid + ethanol), D(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that salidroside (SAL) can protect heart from exhaustive exercise-induced injury by enhancing mitochondrial respiratory function and mitochondrial biogenesis key signaling pathway PGC-1α-NRF1/NRF2 in rats. METHODS Male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 4 groups: sedentary (C), exhaustive exercise (EE), low-dose SAL(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of anterior corpus callosotomy with a keyhole approach on refractory seizures and to evaluate this procedure for drop attacks (DAs) and generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCSs). METHODS All refractory seizure patients underwent anterior corpus callosotomy (n=31) without other epilepsy(More)
Mammalian innate and acquired immune responses involve a coordinated, sequential, and self limiting sequence of events controlled by positive and negative regulatory mechanism. MicroRNAs have been implicated as a negative regulator for diverse biological events including immune responses. However, the involvement of miRNAs in regulating the immune responses(More)
