Comprehensively understand the distribution of pollutants in the multi-media environment at basin scale is of major importance to the ecological risk assessment and pollution control. In this study, multi-media contamination characteristics of eight heavy metals in the water, soil, and sediment from the Shaying River Basin of China have been analyzed to probe their ecological risks and potential sources. Results revealed that heavy metal concentrations in pore water were higher than those in surface water. While the mean concentrations of most heavy metals increased follow the order of bankside soil (BS)

Element partitioning, emissions, and relative risk during disposal processes of diverse litters, fruit tree branches, and crop straws: dry distillation, incomplete combustion, and sufficient combustion.

Environ Sci Pollut Res Int 2022 Jan 14. Epub 2022 Jan 14.

Environment and Resources College, Shanxi University, No.92 Wucheng Rd, Taiyuan, 030006, China.

This study reports the release behaviors, enrichment characteristics, contamination level, and health risk of twenty-one elements in biomass, when dry distillation, incomplete combustion, and sufficient combustion. Results indicate that the element concentration in different kinds of biomass varies greatly. Even for the same kind of biomass, concentration in three products of dry distillation, incomplete combustion, and sufficient combustion is also different: fifteen elements (K, Ca, Mg, Al, Fe, Mn, B, Cu, Zn, Mo, Cd, Cr, Pb, Sb, Sn) have no significant difference in concentration but other six elements (As, Co, Ni, V, Na, P) are the opposite. Multivariate statistical approaches were used to assess five significant factors which affect element concentration, suggesting the contributes from biomass type, moisture content, soil, biomass age or organ, and disposal methods. Disposal methods and biomass type result in significant differences in element enrichment factor. More elements will release during sufficient combustion rather than dry distillation. The increasing of supplied oxygen during disposal process may increase the overall toxicity from elements release. The data of excess lifetime cancer risk (ELCR) suggests that Cr, Ni, Co, Cd, and Pb are the largest contributors to cancer risks during biomass application.

First Report of New Bacterial Leaf streak of Rice Caused by Pantoea ananatis in China.

Plant Dis 2022 Jan 12. Epub 2022 Jan 12.

Taian, China;

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the largest grain crop, accounting for about 40 % of the total grain production in China. In mid-July 2021, bacterial leaf streak-like disease emerged in rice varieties Chunyou584 and Yongyou2604 in Linyi city, Shandong Province, China. Disease incidences of the disease ranged from 80% to 90% in the surveyed fields. Infected rice leaves displayed dark green to yellowish-brown water-soaked thin streaks, and a large amount of beaded yellow oozes were observed on the lesions. After drying, there were gelatinous granules that were not easy to fall off and spread between leaf veins (Fig.S1A). According to the field symptoms of this disease, it was preliminarily suspected to be rice bacterial leaf streak caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc), which is a guaranteed disease in China. To isolate the causal agent, leaf discs (~1 cm2) of diseased leaves were collected from the margins of the lesions, surface sterilized and ground into pieces in sterile double distilled water. The 10-3, 10-4 and 10-5 dilutions were spread onto peptone sugar agar (PSA) and incubated at 28°C for 36 hours. Yellow mucous bacterial colonies were consistently obtained on PSA medium. To identify the pathogen, fragments of the 16S rDNA, leuS and rpoB were amplified and sequenced using the primers previously reported (Yu et al. 2021). Three strains (LY01, LY02 and LY03) showed identical colony morphology and LY01 was used for further analyses. Sequence analyses showed that the fragments of 16S rDNA (955 bp, GenBank accession number: OK261898), leuS (755 bp, GenBank accession number: OK298387) and rpoB (926 bp, GenBank accession number: OK298388) of strain LY01 shared 99.16%, 99.46% and 100% similarities with those of Pantoea ananatis TZ39 (GenBank accession numbers: CP081342.1 for 16S rDNA, MW981338.1 for leuS and MW981344.1 for rpoB), respectively, which suggest the pathogenic bacterial strain LY01 isolated is P. ananatis. In addition, the single colony of P. ananatis LY01 was shown as Fig. S2B. Furthermore, pathogenicity tests were also performed according to the following steps. Bacterial suspension at OD600=0.1 was inoculated into eight rice leaves of four healthy rice plants (Chunyou 584) at 25-33°C and 60%-80% relative humidity in the field using a clipping method (Yang et al. 2020) or spraying methods, and sterile distilled water was as negative control. The clipped leaves (Fig. S1B) and spray-inoculated leaves (Fig. S1C) showed dark green water-soaked streaks at 14 days after inoculation, respectively, which showed similar symptoms with those samples collected from the fields (Fig. S1A). On contrary, the control rice leaves remained healthy and symptomless (Fig. S2A). The bacterium was re-isolated in the inoculated rice leaves and the re-isolated bacterial isolates, which was confirmed by sequencing 16S rDNA, leuS and rpoB, incited the same symptoms as in fields, which fulfills Koch's postulates. In the past decade, P. ananatis was reported to result in grain discoloration and leaf blight in China (Yan et al. 2010; Xue et al. 2020, Yu et al. 2021), which could result in 40% - 60% yield losses. To our best knowledge, this is the first report of the bacterial leaf streak-likely disease occurred in Shandong Province caused by P. ananatis, so we named it as Pantoea leaf streak of rice. Although P. ananatis was also reported in Zhejiang province and Jiangxi province, which caused leaf streak lesions on rice, the disease symptoms are completely different from those of Pantoea leaf streak of rice. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of Pantoea leaf streak of rice caused by P. ananatis. This study provides sloid evidence that Pantoea leaf streak of rice in Eastern China can be caused by the new pathogen, P. ananatis, rather than Xoc as traditionally assumed. Disease development and quarantine of the new Pantoea leaf streak of rice disease caused by P. ananatis on rice need more attention in the near future.

Penetrance of gene mutation in primary open-angle glaucoma: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Ophthalmic Genet 2022 Jan 11:1-8. Epub 2022 Jan 11.

Department of Ophthalmology, Eye Institute, Affiliated Hospital of Nantong University, Nantong, Jiangsu Province, China.

Purpose: To investigate the penetrance of gene mutation in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) through systematic review and meta-analysis. To explore the factors affecting the penetrance of and provide evidence-based medical evidence for clinical work.

Methods: We searched all studies that reported the penetrance of mutation in PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and Chinese databases including Wanfang, CNKI (China National Knowledge Infrastructure), and CBM (China Bio-Med). Random effects meta-analysis was conducted to estimate the penetrance of mutation in POAG.

Results: Fifty-two studies were included in this analysis after screening. Meta-analysis of the penetrance of mutation showed that the penetrance of mutation in POAG was 60% (95% CI: 51.0% to 68.0%) and the penetrance of mutation in POAG and suspected POAG was 68% (95% CI: 60.0% to 75.0%). The penetrance of mutation increases with age. Among Caucasians, Asians, and Africans, the penetrance of mutation in POAG was 55%, 71%, 54%, respectively, and the penetrance of mutation in POAG and suspected POAG was 64%, 83%, and 57%, respectively. Besides, the penetrance of different mutation sites was significantly discrepant. The penetrance of mutation in POAG ranged from 10.3% to 100% depending on the mutation sites. Some mutation sites have a certain population specificity, which is only pathogenic in Caucasians or Asians.

Conclusions: The penetrance of mutation in POAG showed significant differences due to different mutation sites. The penetrance increased with the accrescent of age. Ethnic difference was an important factor affecting the penetrance of mutation. Knowing the rules and influencing factors of the penetrance of mutations is significant for the assessment of the risk of POAG in carriers with the mutation.

Tianjin Key Laboratory of TCM Chemistry and Analysis, Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 10 Poyanghu Road, West Area, Tuanbo New Town, Jinghai District, 301617, Tianjin, China; Institute of TCM, Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 10 Poyanghu Road, West Area, Tuanbo New Town, Jinghai District, 301617, Tianjin, China. Electronic address:

As one of raw materials, the rhizome of Imperata cylindrica var. major (Nees) C.E. Hubb. is used in kinds of preparations curing inflammation related diseases, while its effective substances are not yet clear. In this paper, its chemical constituents and their anti-inflammatory activities were investigated. As results, ten compounds, named as imperphenoside A (1), imperphenols B (2) and C (3), imperphenosides D-F (4-6), and imperlignanosides A-D (7-10), along with previously reported thirty-seven known ones (11-47) were obtained from it. Their structures were ascertained basing on the extensive spectroscopic methods and electronic circular dichroism data analysis. Meanwhile, compounds 4, 11, 12, 24, 27, 31, 32, 37, 43, 45, and 47 exhibited nitric oxide inhibitory effects in concentration dependent at 3, 10, and 30 μM on lipopolysaccharides induced RAW 264.7 cells. Moreover, the western blot analysis indicated that compounds 4, 11, 43, and 47 could restrain the phosphorylation of nuclear factor kappa-B kinase to down-regulate the protein expression of inflammatory cytokines such as inducible nitric oxide synthase, interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor-α. In conclusion, they might play the anti-inflammatory effects through regulating NF-κB signaling pathway.
