• toxic
  • Bioremediation involves naturally occurring organisms to break down or neutralize inorganic and organic pollutants into less toxic or nontoxic forms. (omicsonline.org)
  • Then we came up with the idea to use our particles to remove toxic chemicals, pollutants, or hormones from water, because we saw that the particles aggregate once you irradiate them with UV light. (technologynetworks.com)
  • While CYP2E1 itself carries out a relatively low number of these reactions (~4% of known P450-mediated drug oxidations), it and related enzymes CYP1A2 and CYP3A4 are responsible for the breakdown of a large number of toxic environmental chemicals and carcinogens that enter the body, in addition to basic metabolic reactions such as fatty acid oxidations.

  • genetically
  • Out of 31 patent assignees, the United States Secretary of Agriculture obtained maximum patents followed by Exxon Research and Engineering Co. Comparison among technological groups indicated that maximum patents (33%) were associated with technologies for reclamation of contaminated soil followed by wastewater and sewage treatment technologies (22%) and use of micro-organisms (20%) natural as well as genetically engineered for bioremediation of environmental pollutants.

  • The term "environmental", as used by cancer researchers, means any risk factor that is not genetically inherited. (wikipedia.org)
  • environment
  • Covering numerous applications of biosensors used in food and the environment, Portable Biosensing of Food Toxicants and Environmental Pollutants presents basic knowledge on biosensor technology at a postgraduate level and explores the latest advances in chemical sensor technology for researchers.

  • To protect the environment from existing pollutants, there is a need to promote innovation in pollution abatement technologies. (omicsonline.org)
  • The mission of NWFAN is to promote asthma-free childhoods, by connecting families to a network of local resources, by helping families reduce environmental triggers through education and outreach, and by advocating for every child's right to breathe clean air and live in an asthma-friendly environment.

  • Genesis of both neurodegenerative diseases has not been elucidated and several endogenous (genetic) and exogenous (environment) factors contribute to the onset and/or development of these illnesses, which highlights the necessity to expand the research on identifying the environmental risk factors that predispose to the development of these neurodegenerative diseases. (frontiersin.org)
  • It is based on the ratio between predicted environmental concentration of the substance (PEC) and the highest concentration of the substance that does not have a harmful effect in the environment (PNEC). (wikipedia.org)
  • Some of these environmental factors are part of the physical environment, while others (such as diet and number of pregnancies) are primarily part of the social, cultural, or economic environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • pollution
  • Beside their use in nanomedicine and nanotechnology C-dots are a component of ash from incompletely combusted carbohydrate products (black carbon), therefore from environmental point of view C-dots are major contributors of air pollution. (techconnect.org)
  • analysis
  • Patent analysis of bioremediation could assist the scientists, stakeholders (technologists, business leaders, attorneys, etc.), policy planners and researchers to access technology updates, develop new process and product, plan future research strategies and take key decisions for developing R&D investment plans for more economic and environmental gain. (omicsonline.org)
  • Personnel at work in a chemical laboratory specialising in the analysis of environmental pollutants. (sciencephoto.com)
  • form
  • But when exposed to UV light, the stabilizing outer shell of the particles is shed, and - now "enriched" by the pollutants - they form larger aggregates that can then be removed through filtration, sedimentation, or other methods. (technologynetworks.com)
