Inorganic contaminants in Canadian First Nation community water systems.
We examined 12 years of data from 47 First Nation community water systems to identify systems experiencing difficulties meeting sampling frequency or regulatory guidelines. While most contaminant concentrations were below guideline values, we identified elevated concentrations and issues with sampling frequency. No system met both sampling frequency requirements - a minimum of one sample per year per analyte - and regulatory guidelines. Exceedance rates for lead, manganese, and arsenic were high in some systems. Moreover, current sampling procedures for lead specify that taps be flushed prior to sampling, which is known to...

A gadolinium-based magnetic ionic liquid for dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction.
Abstract A hydrophobic gadolinium-based magnetic ionic liquid (MIL) was investigated for the first time as an extraction solvent in dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME). The tested MIL was composed of trihexyl(tetradecyl)phosphonium cations and paramagnetic gadolinium chloride anions. The prepared MIL showed low water miscibility, reasonable viscosity, markedly high magnetic susceptibility, adequate chemical stability, low UV background, and compatibility with reversed-phase HPLC solvents. These features resulted in a more efficient extraction than the corresponding iron or manganese analogues. Accordi...

Remediation by means of EDTA of an agricultural calcareous soil polluted with Pb
This study analyzes the feasibility of remediating a calcareous soil (used for maize cultivation) polluted with lead in the semiarid zone of Zimap án, México, by using EDTA as an extractant. Total geoavailable and bioaccessible concentrations in the gastric and intestinal phases were determined to evaluate lead availability and health risk. The soil was then washed with EDTA, and the geochemical fractionation (interchangeable, carbonates, Fe /Mn oxy-hydroxides, organic matter–sulfides, and residual) and impact on the mesophile bacteria and fungi/yeast populations were analyzed. The results showed total ...

Tandem Mn-I exchange and homocoupling processes mediated by a synergistically operative lithium manganate.
Abstract Pairing lithium and manganese(II) to form lithium manganate [Li 2 Mn(CH 2 SiMe 3 ) 4 ] ( 2b ) enables the efficient direct Mn-I exchange of aryliodides, affording transient (aryl)lithium manganate intermediates which in turn undergo spontaneous C-C homocoupling at room temperature to furnish a range of symmetrical (bis)aryls in good yields under mild reaction conditions. Combining EPR with X-ray crystallographic studies light has been shone on the mixed Li/Mn constitution of the organometallic intermediates involved in these reactions, including the homocoupling step which had previously been thought to o...

This study presents the results of pilot measurement, where the exposure of fine and ultrafine particulate matter was monitored. The measurement was performed in welding workplace, where these particles are produced unintentionally. The measurement consisted of collecting information and measuring the concentration of particles in the workplace, where data collection was focused only on inhalation exposure. During welding, primarily 300 nm size particles are produced, and their concentration is strongly influenced by the welding material, type of welding and suction. The particles are amorphous in terms of morphology and c...

Combined effects of arbuscular mycorrhizae fungus and composted pig manure on the growth of ryegrass and uptake of Cd and Zn in the soil from an e-waste recycling site.
Abstract Little attention has been paid to the combined effects of arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM) fungus and composted manure on heavy metal bioavailability and its uptake by plants grown in heavy metal-contaminated soils from electronic-waste (e-waste) recycling sites. A greenhouse pot experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of AM fungus, composted pig manure (CM) and AM fungus + CM (ACM) on the growth of ryegrass and uptake of Cd and Zn in the soil collected from an e-waste recycling site. The calcium chloride (CaCl2) and Tessier sequential extraction procedure were adopted to evaluate the bioavailabili...

Genes, Vol. 11, Pages 1227: Metabolic Specialization and Codon Preference of Lignocellulolytic Genes in the White Rot Basidiomycete Ceriporiopsis subvermispora
rio Tello Ceriporiopsis subvermispora is a white-rot fungus with a high specificity towards lignin mineralization when colonizing dead wood or lignocellulosic compounds. Its lignocellulose degrading system is formed by cellulose hydrolytic enzymes, manganese peroxidases, and laccases that catalyze the efficient depolymerization and mineralization of lignocellulose. To determine if this metabolic specialization has modified codon usage of the lignocellulolytic system, improving its adaptation to the fungal translational machine, we analyzed the adaptation to host codon usage (CAI), tRNA pool (tAI, and AAtAI), codon pair...

Bioavailability and risk assessment of trace metals in sediments of a high-altitude eutrophic lake, Ooty, Tamil Nadu, India.
Abstract Ooty lake, in the southern part of India, has raised huge concern about the role of metals in a lake due to increasing anthropogenic activities. Present study is aimed at understanding fate of trace metals in a lake's sediment. Sixteen sediment samples collected from bottom of the lake at various locations during March 2017 were analysed for trace metals cobalt, chromium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, nickel and zinc. Fe and Mn dominate total metal concentration followed by Ni and Cr. A high concentration of Cr, Cu, Ni and Zn in residual fraction indicates weathering as the source for these metals. A sig...

Manganese-Based Targeted Nanoparticles for Postoperative Gastric Cancer Monitoring via Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Postoperative recurrence is a common and severe problem in the treatment of gastric cancer; consequently, a prolonged course of chemotherapy treatment is inevitable. Monitoring by imaging could provide an accurate evaluation of the therapeutic effects, which would be beneficial to guide a treatment strategy adjustment over time. However, current imaging technologies remain insufficient for the continuous postoperative monitoring of gastric cancer. In this case, molecular imaging offers an efficient strategy. Targetable contrast agents are an essential part of molecular imaging, which could greatly enhance the accuracy and ...

PdpaMn inhibits fatty acid synthase-mediated glycolysis by down-regulating PI3K/Akt signaling pathway in breast cancer
This study investigated the activity of PdpaMn on glycolysis and its mechanism. PdpaMn was used to suppress FASN expression in tumor. Expression of ATP and lactic acid level was measured to investigate the glycolysis variance in cells and animals. MCF-7 and 4T1 cells were treated with G28UCM, an inhibitor of FASN and PdpaMn, western blotting to detect PI3K/Akt signaling pathway. The capacity of proliferation was investigated by western blotting and immunohistochemistry. PdpaMn selectively inhibits cancer cells and tumor growth but also block FASN expression and suppresses the content of free fatty acid. Lactate dehydrogena...

The green alga exhibited high tolerance to Zn and Mn, with the maximum abatement of Zn (28-30%) and Mn (60-63.5%) after 14 and 7 days of culture, respectively. Mn stimulated the growth rate and biomass production of Chlorella, which showed the highest carbon levels just in the first week. I...
