Mechanisms of trace metal transport in rivers

, : Mechanisms of trace metal transport in rivers. Science 180(4081): 71-73

Trace metals transported by the Amazon (and Yukon rivers were analytically partitioned among the transport phases: in solutions, ion exchange, organic materials, metallic coatings, and crystalline solids. The distribution for both rivers is similarly proportioned, with copper and chromium transported mainly in the crystalline solids, manganese in coatings, and iron, nickel, and cobalt distributed equally between precipitated metallic coatings and crystalline solids.

The gastric hormone gastrin regulates the expression of a variety of genes involved in control of acid secretion and also in the growth and organization of the gastric mucosa. One putative target is plasminogen activator inhibitor-2 (PAI-2), which...

In the present study, we assessed the bioactivation of 3MI by rec...

A group of species belonging to the Ectobiinae is described in which the male genitalia show a reversed right-left asymmetry. The aberrant orientation can be explained by the mutation of a developmental gene regulating the right-left asymmetry of...
