Evaluation of different amendments and foliar fertilizer for immobilization of heavy metals in contaminated soils

Purpose The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of soil amendments and foliar fertilizer on Cd and Pb immobilization in contaminated soils. Materials and methods A field experiment was conducted in contaminated soils, wherein four amendments (sepiolite (SE), single superphosphate (SSP), triple super phosphate (TSP), calcium magnesium phosphate (CMP)) in combination ...

Significantly enhanced dye removal performance of hollow tin oxide nanoparticles via carbon coating in dark environment and study of its mechanism

Understanding the correlation between physicochemical properties and morphology of nanostructures is a prerequisite for widespread applications of nanomaterials in environmental application areas. Herein, we illustrated that the uniform-sized SnO2@C hollow nanoparticles were large-scale synthesized by a facile hydrothermal method. The size of the core-shell hollow nanoparticles was ...

Mannose-Binding Lectin Inhibits Monocyte Proliferation through Transforming Growth Factor-β1 and p38 Signaling Pathways

Mannose-binding lectin (MBL), a plasma C-type lectin, plays an important role in innate immunity. However, the interaction, and the consequences of it, between MBL and the immune system remain ill defined. We have investigated the contributing mechanisms and effects of MBL on the proliferation of human monocytes. At lower concentrations (≤4 μg/ml) MBL was shown to partially enhance ...

Virologic and clinical characteristics of HBV genotypes/subgenotypes in 487 Chinese pediatric patients with CHB

Background The association of hepatitis B virus (HBV) genotypes/subgenotypes with clinical characteristics is increasingly recognized. However, the virologic and clinical features of HBV genotypes/subgenotypes in pediatric patients remain largely unknown. Methods Four hundred and eighty-seven pediatric inpatients with CHB were investigated, including 217 nucleos(t)ide ...
