Abstract

Plant cultivation is a key aspect of future long-distance space missions, and the creation of an efficient food system will not be possible without it. The production of fertilizer in space is based on the recovery of water and nutrients from wastewater, such as urine and grey water. In this study, ...

Abstract

There is a bidirectional interactive relationship between heavy metals and intestinal microorganisms. Single exposure to common heavy metals (Cd, Cr, As, Pb, etc.) may cause intestinal microecological damage and related diseases by losing the diversity and relative abundance of intestinal...

Abstract

Rain contains encapsulated bacteria that can be transported over vast distances during relatively short periods of time. However, the ecological significance of bacteria in "precontact" rainwater-rainwater prior to contact with non-atmospheric surfaces-remains relatively undefined given the...

Abstract

Neonicotinoids (neonics) are amongst the most commonly used class of pesticides globally. In the United States, imidacloprid (IMI) is extensively used for agriculture and in other common applications such as house-hold pest control. Regular exposure to IMI, and several of its known metabolites...

Abstract

Cyanotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by different types of cyanobacteria. Among them, Cylindrospermopsin (CYN) and Microcystins (MCs) stand out due to their wide geographical distribution and toxicity in various organs, including the kidney, which is involved in their distribution and...

Abstract

Successful papillary adhesion is the first essential step for serious ascidian biofouling in marine ecosystems; however, the mechanisms of papillary adhesion have not been fully elucidated. Here, we employed transcriptome sequencing to assess the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between...

Abstract

To study the effect of spraying different concentrations of urea on the expression of insecticidal protein in Bt cotton buds, and to provide a theoretical and practical basis for improving the insect resistance of Bt cotton. The study was undertaken on two Bt cotton cultivars Sikang 1 (SK1, a...

Abstract

Genetic engineering has emerged as an attractive strategy for incorporating resistance in plants against diverse pathogens and has been largely achieved through transgenic expression of ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs), pathogenesis-related (PR) proteins, pathogen-derived genes, or strategies...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Sublethal exposure to insecticides causes changes in insect behaviors and physiologies including feeding, mobility, communication, hormone homeostasis, development and fecundity, however, the underlying molecular mechanisms were largely unclear. Our previous studies revealed that...
