Brown cotton is a kind of naturally colored cotton. Because of less processing and little dying, it is more friendlier to environment than white cotton. For brown cotton, pigment accumulation in fiber is one of the most important characteristics. In this study, we selected a brown fiber line and a white fiber cultivar to determine the factor that affects(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) is an important biological messenger in plants, which has been implicated in response to abiotic stress. To study the effects of exogenous NO on drought menace, the tube seedlings of Dendrobium huoshanense were selected and treated with 10% polyethylene glycol (PEG-6000) to simulate drought stress. After application of sodium nitroprusside(More)
A symmetric ligand 2, 6-di ((phenazonyl-4-imino)methyl)-4-methylphenol (Dpmp) and its cobalt dinuclear complex (Co2(Dpmp)2(NO3)2(H2O)2·NO3·EtOH, (1) and zinc mononuclear complex Zn(Dpmp)(NO3)2, (2) have been prepared. The crystal structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The biological activity has been evaluated by examining their(More)
A new rhodamine-based chemosensor (L1) was synthesized, and it exhibits high sensitivity and selectivity for the copper cation over other commonly coexistent metal ions in aqueous solution. Upon the addition of Cu(2+), the spirolactam ring of L1 was opened and a 1 : 1 metal-ligand complex was formed. Fluorescent imaging of Cu(2+) in living cells is also(More)
A new fluorescent sensor L1 based on coumarin was synthesized. It shows high sensitivity and selectivity toward Cu(2+) in aqueous solution. The complexation mode and corresponding quenching mechanism were elucidated by ESI-MS and DFT calculations. In addition, biological imaging studies have demonstrated that L1 can detect Cu(2+) in living cells.
A new fluorescent probe 1, N-(Rhodamine-6G)lactam-hydrazinecarbothioamide, was synthesized as a fluorescent and colorimetric chemodosimeter in aqueous solution for Cu(2+). Following Cu(2+)-promoted ring opening, redox and hydrolysis reactions, comparable amplifications of absorption and fluorescence signals were observed upon addition of Cu(2+); this(More)
Land use activities can have a major impact on the temporal trends and spatial patterns of regional land-atmosphere exchange of carbon. Federal lands generally have substantially different land management strategies from surrounding areas, and the carbon consequences have rarely been quantified and assessed. Using the Fort Benning Installation as a case(More)
Mushrooms have the ability to accumulate high concentrations of heavy metals, which gives them potential for use as bioremediators of environmental contamination. The Pb2+ tolerance and accumulation ability of living mycelia of Flammulina velutipes were studied in this work. Mycelial growth was inhibited when exposed to 1 mM Pb2+. The colony diameter on(More)
