PCDTs in the environment

, : PCDTs in the environment. Chemosphere 34(12): 2585-2594

Polychlorinated dibenzothiophenes (PCDTs) are sulfur analogues of polychlorinated dibenzofurans. Recently, PCDTs have been found in stack gas and fly ash samples, pulp mill effluents, sediments and in some aquatic organisms. PCDTs have been analyzed by high resolution GC/MS and by other GC-MS techniques. Combustion is until now the major known source of PCDTs in the environment. Tri-, tetra- and pentaCDTs in concentrations approaching those of PCDDs have been analyzed in some samples from waste incineration and metal reclamation. Concentrations of PCDTs in pulp mill effluents have been found to be quite low. 2378-TeCDT was found to be the major TeCDT isomer in some pulp mill effluents. Preliminary toxicological investigations have shown that PCDTs possess some kind of dioxin type toxicity.

Hypoxia is the most important stimulus for the up-regulation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), one of the key cytokines for angiogenesis. We have investigated the possible relationship between tumor hypoxia and systemic levels of VEGF....

A human parechovirus (HPeV) strain CAU10-NN was detected from a stool sample of a 2-year-old healthy female infant in South Korea using a metagenomic approach. The CAU10-NN virus was isolated using a cell culture system and its whole genome was an...

Type 1 protein phosphatase (PP1) is a critical regulator of several cellular processes. In the heart, it mediates restoration of contractility to basal levels by dephosphorylating key phospho-proteins, after beta-adrenergic stimulation. PP1 is a h...

We explore the difficulties with a primordial origin of variations of D/H in quasar absorption systems. In particular we examine options such as a very large-scale inhomogeneity in the baryon content of the universe. We show that very large-scale...
