    Study on Relation between Variation of Chlorophyll aConcentration and Sediment Grain Size on an Intertidal Flat(Chinese)
    LI Wan-hui;DING Ping-xing
    2007, 2007 (4):  26-33. 
    Abstract ( 3744 )   Save
    The chlorophyll a concentration and grain size in the sediment of an intertidal flat, as well as their relations were studied based on experiment data observed in the mudflat of Chongming Dongtan in Changjiang Estuary, where samples from three transects were taken during April, May, October and December in 2005. The results showed that there were remarkable seasonal variations of chlorophyll a concentrations and grain size at the surface of the mudflat, i.e., the chlorophyll a concentrations were higher in April [(5.997±0.803 ) μg·g-1] than in December [(0.571±0.091) μg·g-1], and the grain size had the similar trend of seasonal variations. The correlation between chlorophyll a concentrations and finegrained sediment content was significant at the 0.05 level ( r=0.693, P=0.012). Moreover, due to the light limitation, the chlorophyll a concentrations at the surface of the sediments were high, and rapidly decreased with the depth, and also were higher on the sediments surface in bare tidal flat than in Scripus mariqueter zone of the transition area.

    MENG Fei;;LIU Min;HOU Li-jun;CHANG Jing;JIANG Hai-yan;WANG He-yi
    2007, 2007 (4):  56-63. 
    Abstract ( 4580 )   Save
    Through the investigation of 5 types of land use in Shanghai central city, including industrial, residential, traffic, greenbelt and commercial areas, heavy metals concentrations of 69 urban dusts, topsoils and 3 urban runoff samples were obtained. Compared with background concentrations, the heavy metal concentrations in urban dust and topsoils are much higher. The comprehensive pollution indexes in urban dusts and soils of the five land use types vary from 67.1 (residential area), 40.3 (green belt), and 22.9 (traffic area) to 12.5(industrial area), respectively. Both the dusts and soils are all polluted, especially due to the high concentration of Pb, Zn, and Cr. The urban runoffs EMCs (event mean concentration) of Cr, Pb and Zn in all land uses are high than Ⅴof the national standard. So the urban runoff will greatly influence the urban river water quality. Commonly, the heavy metal average contents of urban dusts are high in industrial, traffic and residential area and low in commercial area and green belts. When concerned the topsoils, however, the commercial area has the highest Cu content (75.2 mg●kg-1) and the lowest Pb content ( mg●kg-1), the traffic area has the highest Zn content (2 960 mg●kg-1); the residential area has the highest Pb (595 mg●kg-1) and Cr (627 mg●kg-1) contents. According to the EMCs in the urban runoff, the industrial area has the highest content of all 4 heavy metals and the EMCs of Cr, Pb, Zn, Cu in industrial are 6.9 mg●kg-1, 500 mg●kg-1, 3.9 mg●kg-1 and 2.3 mg●kg-1. The runoff around the industrial area, therefore, should be considered seriously. According to the EMCs in the urban runoff, the order of the rest land use types, from the highest to the lowest Pb, Cr and Zn concentration,is traffic area,residential area and commercial area.

    Abstract ( 3152 )   Save
    To better understand the biological functions of Eph/ephrin genes in human lung carcinomas, mRNA expression levels of EphA2, EphB,EphB4,ephrin-A5 and ephrin-B2 were quantified in samples from 48 non-small-cell lung carcinomas (NSCLCs) in comparison with normal lung tissues by real-time PCR assay. The up-regulations of EphB4, EphB3 and ephrin-A5 in 27 of 48(60%), 39 of 48(81%) and 31 of 48(65%) lung cancers were found respectively. The results also showed that the expression of ephrin-A5 gene is associated with tumor histology, tumor size, metastasis, gender, smoking habits and age of the patients. There is a significant correlation between EphA2 expression and tumor size, tumor age and family history. All these results suggest that EphB4, EphA2, EphB3 and ephrin-A5 might function independently or synergistically in initiation and progression of primary lung cancer, and they might serve as valuable targets for therapeutic intervention.

    Abstract ( 3119 )   Save
    To evaluate the preservation effects of different solutions, viability rate and density were assessed in of Eriocheir sinensis preserved in six solutions (In Vitro) at 4 ℃. Meanwhile viability rate of sperms was assessed by eosin stain. Those six preservation solutions were calcium-free artificial sea water I (Ca2+-FASW I), calcium-free artificial sea water II (Ca2+-FASW II), isostonie sodium chloride (NaCl) solution, aseptic physiological saline, isostonie potassium chloride (KCl) solution and isostonie glucose solution. Results showed that most of sperms preserved in KCl solution and glucose solution were thorough dead after 2 days. While sperms in Ca 2+-FASW I, II still keep alive.Especially in the Ca2+-FASW II, 92.19% sperms survived after 6 days′ preservation. Therefore, Ca2+-FASW II is an excellent solution to preserve Eriocheir sinensis sperms (In Vitro). Furthermore, Ca2+-FASW II was used to study its preservation effect with different sperms destiny, pH value and osmotic pressure. It indicated that no less than 95% sperms survived after 2 days′ preservation at 106~107 sperm/mL at 4 ℃. At least 90% survived after 15 days′ preservation at pH 7~10. More than 75% survived after 15 days′ preservation at 700~850 mOsmol/kg H2O among 10 scalar solutions at the different osmotic pressures (500~1 000 mOsmol/kg H2O) modulated by NaCl. It is concluded that with sperm density at 106~107 sperm/mL, osmotic pressure at 750~850 mOsmol/kg H2O and pH at 7~10, Eriocheir sinensis sperms are preserved in the optimum condition (In Vitro).

    DNA damage induced by mercuric chloride (HgCl2) and cadmium chloride (CdCl2) in Eriocheir sinensis sperms (in vitro) was studied using single-cell gel electrophoresis (SCGE). Separated DNAs were dealt with six HgCl2 and CdCl2 scalar solutions (for each) (0 mmol/L, 0.01 mmol/L, 0.05 mmol/L, 0.1 mmol/L, 1 mmol/L, 5 mmol/L) for one hour at 37 ℃ (water bath) respectively. The length of cometic tail and damage rate of DNAs were betaken as SCGE indices. Results showed that DNAs in control group are free of damage, static in electric field and manifested as a round fluorophoreu without any cometic tails. While those dealt DNAs are damaged to various degrees and demonstrated as cometic fluorophoreu in electric field after Ethidium bromide (EB) stain. Furthermore, with the incremental concentration of HgCl2 and CdCl2, damage rate and migration distance also enlarge accordingly, that′s to say, dose-response relationship exist between SCGE indices and concentration of HgCl2 and CdCl2. Therefore, it is concluded that certain concentration of HgCl2 and CdCl2 does induce DNA damage in Eriocheir sinensis sperms (in vitro) and the damage degree is related to the concentration of HgCl2 and CdCl2, which have been attested using SCGE.
