Does bioelectrochemical cell configuration and anode potential affect biofilm response?
(Portland Press Ltd., 2012-12-01)
Electrochemical gradients are the backbone of basic cellular functions, including chemo-osmotic transport and ATP synthesis. Microbial growth, terminal respiratory proteins and external electron transfer are major pathways ...
Characterizing the emergence and persistence of drug resistant mutations in hiv-1 subtype c infections using 454 ultra deep pyrosequencing
(Springer Nature, 2013-01-30)
Background: The role of HIV-1 RNA in the emergence of resistance to antiretroviral therapies (ARTs) is well documented while less is known about the role of historical viruses stored in the proviral DNA. The primary focus ...
Rethinking the interplay of feminism and secularism in a neo-secular age
(Springer Nature, 2011-03-01)
The need to re-examine established ways of thinking about secularism and its relationship to feminism has arisen in the context of the confluence of a number of developments including: the increasing dominance of the 'clash ...
Survival, biofilm formation, and growth potential of environmental and enteric escherichia coli strains in drinking water microcosms
(American Society for Microbiology, 2016-06-24)
Escherichia coli is the most commonly used indicator for fecal contamination in drinking water distribution systems (WDS). The assumption is that E. coli bacteria are of enteric origin and cannot persist for long outside ...
Linking soil erosion to instream dissolved phosphorus cycling and periphyton growth
Phosphorus (P) is a limiting nutrient in freshwater systems and when present in runoff from agricultural lands or urban centers may contribute to excessive periphyton growth. In this study, we examined the link between ...
Aerosol decadal trends – part 1: in-situ optical measurements at gaw and improve stations
(Copernicus GmbH, 2013-01-22)
Currently many ground-based atmospheric stations include in-situ measurements of aerosol physical and optical properties, resulting in more than 20 long-term (&gt; 10 yr) aerosol measurement sites in the Northern ...
Mycosphere essay 18: biotechnological advances of beneficial fungi for plants
(Mushroom Research Foundation, 2017-03-09)
Reactivity of inorganic mn and mn desferrioxamine b with o2, o2–, and h2o2in seawater
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-08-22)
Manganese (Mn) is a required element for oceanic phytoplankton as it plays a critical role in photosynthesis, through its unique redox chemistry, as the active site in photosystem II, and in enzymes that act as defenses ...
Fermilarge area telescope observations of markarian 421: the missing piece of its spectral energy distribution
(IOP Publishing, 2011-07-15)
We report on the gamma-ray activity of the high-synchrotron-peaked BL Lacertae object Markarian 421 (Mrk 421) during the first 1.5 years of Fermi operation, from 2008 August 5 to 2010 March 12. We find that the Large Area ...
Comparison of outpatient and home-based exercise training programmes for copd: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a common, preventable and treatable disease. Exercise training programmes (ETPs) improve symptoms, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and exercise capacity, but the optimal ...
