Cementitious binders are often used to immobilize industrial wastes such as residues of coal combustion. Such immobilization stabilizes wastes that contain contaminants by chemical containment, i.e., by uptake of contaminants into the cementitious reaction products. Expectedly, the release ("leachability") of contaminants is linked to: (i) the stability of the matrix (i.e., its resistance to decomposition on exposure to water), and, (ii) its porosity, which offers a pathway for the intrusion of water and egress of contaminant species...

Cellulose and hemicellulose are the most abundant components in plant biomass. A preferred Consolidated Bioprocessing (CBP) system is one which can directly convert both cellulose and hemicellulose into target products without adding the costly hydrolytic enzyme cocktail. In this work, the thermophilic, cellulolytic, and anaerobic bacterium, Clostridium thermocellum DSM 1313, was engineered to grow on xylose in addition to cellulose. Both xylA (encoding for xylose isomerase) and xylB (encoding for xylulokinase) genes from the thermophilic anaerobic bacterium Thermoanaerobacter ethanolicus were introduced to enable xylose utilization while still retaining its inherent ability to grow on 6-carbon substrates...

BACKGROUND: Mandatory newborn screening for metabolic disorders has not been implemented in most parts of China. Newborn mortality and morbidity could be markedly reduced by early diagnosis and treatment of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM). Methods of screening for IEM by tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) have been developed, and their advantages include rapid testing, high sensitivity, high specificity, high throughput, and low sample volume (a single dried blood spot). METHODS: Dried blood spots of 100,077 newborns obtained from Jining city in 2014-2015 were screened by MS/MS...

In our previous study, drought-resistant transgenic plants of Salvia miltiorrhiza were produced via overexpression of the transcription factor AtDREB1A. To unravel the molecular mechanisms underpinning elevated drought tolerance in transgenic plants, in the present study we compared the global transcriptional profiles of wild-type (WT) and AtDREB1A -expressing transgenic plants using RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq). Using cluster analysis, we identified 3904 differentially expressed genes (DEGs). Compared with WT plants, 423 unigenes were up-regulated in pRD29A::AtDREB1A-31 before drought treatment, while 936 were down-regulated and 1580 and 1313 unigenes were up- and down-regulated after six days of drought...

OBJECTIVE: The DAVID gene functional classification tool requires adaptations for use in non-model species and there is little available information to guide selection of a kappa score. Our objective was to develop an R-script that allows custom gene identifiers and novel annotation information to be incorporated into analyses, then use such data to evaluate the number of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in a comparison based on kappa score selection. RESULTS: Using an R-script we developed and multiple data sets ranging from 555 to 3340 annotated DEGs from a study in rainbow trout, we found the percentage of DEGs harbored within a module and the number of genes shared among multiple modules decreased with increasing kappa score regardless of the number of DEGs in the comparison...

High amounts of mine wastes are continuously produced by the mining industry all over the world. Recycling possibility of some wastes in fired brick making has been investigated and showed promising results. However, little attention is given to the leaching behavior of mine wastes based fired bricks. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the geochemical behavior of fired bricks containing different types of coal wastes. The leachates were analyzed for their concentration of As, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Mo, Ni, Pb, Zn and sulfates using different leaching tests; namely Tank Leaching tests (NEN 7375), Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) and pH dependence test (EPA, 1313)...

Strains of Lactobacillus have been used for the synthesis of metallic nanoparticles. Since the carbohydrate source could influence the yield and size of the synthesised nanoparticles, the authors evaluated the potential of Lactobacillus plantarum 1449 and Lactobacillus ruminis 1313 to produce silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using three carbohydrate sources and AgNO3. The presence of AgNO3 in the medium extended the duration of the acceleration and logarithmic phases of the two strains independently of the carbohydrate source used but did not inhibit their growth...
