Abstract Long-term exposure to arsenic can cause liver injury and fibrosis. The activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) plays an essential role in the process of liver fibrosis. We found that NaAsO2 caused liver damage and fibrosis in vivo, accompanied by excessive collagen deposition and HSCs activation. In addition, NaAsO2 upregulated autophagy flux, elevated the level of cytoplasmic cathepsin B (CTSB), and activated the NOD-like receptors containing pyrin domain 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome in ...

Abstract Large-scale abuse of antibiotics has led to serious environmental problems. Some conventional adsorbents such as several biopolymer gels have poor adsorption performance and inadequate mechanical properties. In this paper, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene oxide (GO), were combined with sodium alginate (SA) to improve the adsorption performance and other properties of traditional adsorbents. With the help of hydrogen peroxide and l -cysteine (L-cys), carbon nanotubes/ l -cysteine@gra...

Abstract Heterogeneous catalysts activated peroxymonosulfate (PMS) for degradation of refractory organic contaminants has been recognized as a promising removal technology for the environmental remediation. In this study, nanocrystalline ferrihydrite (NFH) was prepared to activate PMS for the degradation of butyl-4-hydroxybenzoate (BHB). XPS analysis indicates that calcination process played a key role in regulating the surface oxygen species of NFH, thus control its activation ability toward PM...

Abstract The anionic form-dependent binding interaction of halo-phenolic substances with human transthyretin (hTTR) has been observed previously. This indicates that ionizable compounds should be the primary focus in screening potential hTTR disruptors. Here, the potential binding potency of halo-benzoic acids, halo-benzenesulfonic acids/sulfates and halo-phenylboronic acids with hTTR was determined and analyzed by competitive fluorescence displacement assay integrated with computational methods...

Abstract Residual plastic film in soil destroys the soil structure and changes the normal transportation and distribution of water and nutrient. In this work, we compared experiments on soil containing residual plastic film with a control experiment to investigate how residual film affects the transportation and distribution of water and nitrate (NO3−) in wetted soil. The experiment used Mariotte bottle, water tube, and soil tank to test six levels of residual-film concentration varying from 0 t...

Abstract Amino-aromatic compounds, 2-amino-4-nitrotoluene (ANT), and 2,4-diaminotoluene (DAT) are carcinogens and environmentally persistent pollutants. In this study, we investigated their degradation by natural manganese peroxidase (nMnP) derived from Phanerochaete chrysosporium and recombinant manganese peroxidase packaged in vaults (vMnP). Encapsulation of manganese peroxidase (MnP) in ribonucleoprotein nanoparticle cages, called vaults, was achieved by creating recombinant vaults in yeast P...

Abstract The present study was conducted at sub-urban and rural site of Agra. The main aim of this study was to characterize WSII in terms of spatial, seasonal and formation characteristics and identify the major sources responsible for the pollution of WSII in PM2.5 particles using different source apportionment models. Since biomass burning is one of the most important sources of PM2.5 pollution in Agra, a case study was also conducted at rural site to investigate the contribution of biomass b...

Abstract Exposure history and adaptation of the inoculum to chemicals have been shown to influence the outcome of ready biodegradability tests. However, there is a lack of information about the mechanisms involved in microbial adaptation and the implication thereof for the tests. In the present study, we investigated the impact of a long-term exposure to N-methylpiperazine (NMP) and 4-chloroaniline (4CA) of an activated sludge microbial community using chemostat systems. The objective was to cha...

Abstract A systematic study on desorption of uranium in a natural soil has been carried out to reduce the level of uncertainty associated with the method employed to determine the values of the distribution coefficient (Kd). Generally, the operating method used to extract and analyze the soil solution determines the Kd values. Here, the centrifugation method has been used to obtain soil solution extracts. Several procedural parameters have been considered such as incubation time, the level of so...

Abstract Organoclays have been applied as efficient adsorbents for pharmaceutical pollutants from aqueous solution. In this work, dodecylpyridinium chloride (C12pyCl) and hexadecylpyridinium chloride (C16pyCl) cationic surfactants were used for the preparation of organobentonites destined for diclofenac sodium (DFNa) adsorption, an anionic drug widely detected in wastewater. The organofunctionalization of the clay samples was performed under microwave irradiation at 50 °C for 5 min with surfacta...
