Determination the bioavailability of contaminants in different fertilizer management soils can be of great theoretical significance for predicting and decreasing the effect of pollutants on eco-environment. In this study, three different fertilization soils were employed in a 16-year field experiment: no fertilization (CK), composted wheat straw and oil cakes (OM) and NPK fertilizer (NPK). The influences of Cu2+ (100 mg/kg), Cd2+ (5 mg/kg) and cypermethrin (l0 mg/kg) and their combinations on microbial functional diversity were observed in different fertilization soils. The results showed that the highest microbial functional diversity was observed in the NPK treatment, followed by CK, and the lowest in the OM soil. At 72 h incubation, AWCD (average well color development) of the NPK soil was 1.19 times than that of the CK soil and 1.62 times than that of the OM soil. After addition of contaminants into soils, microbial functional diversity decreased to a different extent. The greatest decrease extent was recorded in the NPK soil, followed by CK and the least in OM. Combination of Cd and cypermethrin had the biggest influence on the microbial functional diversity. AWCD was decreased by 48%, six substrate groups and microbial di...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
