Aquatic phytotransformation of trinitrotoluene in contaminated media
Recent investigations indicate that 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) is rapidly transformed in an aquatic environment by the action of photosynthetic organisms. Several plant species from a variety of culture conditions were ...
CONSTRUCTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF ESCHERICHIA COLI PLASMIDS USEFUL IN THE MANIPULATION OF DNA
The restriction endonuclease MboII recognizes a nonpalindromic, pentanucleotide DNA sequence and cleaves both strands of the DNA eight bases downstream, leaving a single 3' protruding base. MboII is one of a group of ...
Differential roles of adhesion receptors during neutrophil adhesion to endothelial cells under flow conditions
Neutrophil emigration from the vasculature is an essential part of the primary immune response to infections. It is a multi-step process of cell interaction with the endothelium (capture, rolling, arrest and transmigration) ...
Soil acetate and methane emissions from irrigated rice: The effects of field drainage and cultivar choice
Methane emissions from flooded rice paddies are important contributors to the increasing atmospheric concentrations of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. With an increased need for rice agriculture to feed the growing global ...
