Development of a bioreactor system using a pine bark matrix for the removal of metal ions from synthetic aqueous solutions.
Many industries use, or produce, metal-containing solutions which must be treated for reuse or discharge to sewer. One such treatment is biological and both living and dead materials have been investigated for the abstraction ...
Complex soil-microorganism-pollutant interactions underpinning bioremediation of hydrocarbon/heavy metal contaminated soil.
This study evaluated the efficacy of bioremediation as a treatment option for a hydrocarbon and heavy metal contaminated soil. Microbial degradation of hydrocarbons under aerobic, nitrate-reducing and sulphate-reducing ...
The microbiology of ex situ bioremediation of petroleum hydrocarbon-contaminated soil.
Bioremediation is the process whereby the degradation of organic polluting compounds occurs as a result of biochemical activity of macro- and microorganisms. Bioremediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soils can be practised ...
An investigation of the dual co-disposal of a phenolic wastewater and activated sewage sludge with refuse and treatment of high-strength leachate obtained from a closed co-disposal landfill.
Co-disposal with refuse in a controlled landfill is the cheapest option for the disposal of hazardous waste and, if carefully controlled, can be an effective treatment option. In this present study a high-strength phenolic ...
Role of marine nitrifying bacteria in a closed system with Penaeus monodon.
In recent years there has been widespread interest in rearing aquatic organisms of nutritional and commercial value (Calaprice, 1976). The most hopeful prospect for marine prawn culture in the United Kingdom (Wickins, ...
Galactosylated liposomes with proton sponge capacity : a novel hepatocyte-specific gene transfer system.
Hepatocyte-directed liposomal gene delivery systems have received much attention in view of the present lack of suitable treatment alternatives for several liver-associated disorders. While targeting of liposomes to the ...
The impact of induced mutations on key nutritional and agronomic traits of sorghum.
Climate change, shrinking arable land, burgeoning population and malnutrition have made all aspects of crop improvement a critical issue. Of these, nutritional quality of crops is perhaps one of the most important aspects. ...
Glucocorticoid receptor promoter expression and apoptosis induction in small cell lung cancer.
Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide and is the fourth leading cause of death in South Africa. Lung cancer is categorised into two types; non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). SCLC ...
Establishment of in vitro shoot multiplication and short-term embryo storage protocols for single genetic modification events in sugarcane.
Sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) is an important economic crop that accounts for more than 80% of world sugar production. Genetic improvement and selection to produce cultivars with traits of interest is difficult in ...
