The compounds of Cr, Ni, Mn, and Cd in the soils around the Novocherkassk Power Station and the influence of the technogenic and natural factors on their composition were investigated. The data on the fractional and the group composition of these compounds proved to be informative for assessing the ecological state of the soils. The soil components specifying the accumulation and the properties of the heavy metal compounds in the polluted and unpolluted areas were identified. © 2013 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

Abstract Previously undescribed 2-, 4or 6-substituted hetaryl-3(5)-nitropyridines were synthesized by the interaction of a number of chlorosubstituted 3(5)-nitropyridines with some diazoles or 3-chloropyridazin-6one. In addition, pyrazolyl-3-nitropyridines were prepared by both the above method and cyclization of hydrazinopyridines, which, in turn, were synthesized by the treatment of chlorosubstituted 3-nitropyridines with hydrazine. It has been shown that these compounds have a moderate antibacterial activity against some pathogenic Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli) and a strong protistocidal effect on protozoa species Colpoda steinii surpassing in this respect clinically used reference drugs. © 2015 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

Understanding the Geological and Medical Interface of Arsenic, As 2012 - 4th International Congress: Arsenic in the Environment | Year: 2012

The content of arsenic and heavy metals in the soils around Novocherkassk Power Station was studied. Soils contamination by arsenic (As), lead (Pb), zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu) within a 10 km distance to the north-west was established. The dependence of arsenic and heavy metals accumulation in soils from location towards and the adsorption soil properties was shown. Arsenic and heavy metals intensive surface accumulation within the 0-5 cm layer was established. © 2012 Taylor & Francis Group.

The aim of this study was to determine the associations between genotypes of the prolactin receptor gene (PRLR) and reproductive, growth, and meat traits in pigs. Genetic groups of sows were used: Large White (LW), Danish Landrace (LD), and Landrace × Yorkshire × Duroc hybrids (L × Y × D). Reproductive traits studied were the total number of born (TNB) and the number born alive (NBA). The growth traits were the number of days to 100 kg and the average daily gains (ADG). The meat traits were the average backfat thickness (BFT), half carcass weight (HCW), area of M. longissimus dorsi (MLT), and lean meat content (LM). The polymorphism was detected using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment-length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method. It was found that the genotype BB is associated with the best NBA. In sows LD, the AB genotype is associated with best number of days to 100 kg; in hybrids L × Y × D, the AA genotype is associated with better meat traits as compared to the genotype BB. © 2014, Allerton Press, Inc.

Changes in the properties of solonetzic soil associations (chestnut solonetzic soils and chestnut solonetzes) in the dry steppe after their reclamation have been studied for 30 years. The reclamation included the deep three-tier plowing and the approach of rotary tillage. A single rotary tillage operation resulted in the formation of fine aggregates of equal sizes in the plow layer; any morphological features of the restoration of solonetzic pedogenesis are absent. The atmospheric moisture easily penetrates into the soil, and soluble salts are leached off to a great depth. In 30 years since the soil amelioration with the use of a PMS-70 rotary tiller, the humus content has increased up to 3.3% in the upper 20-cm-thick layer and up to 2. 4% in the layer of 20-40 cm. The content of adsorbed Na + in the 20- to 30-cm-thick layer has decreased to 10. 6% of the cation exchange capacity (in comparison with 19. 8% in the nonreclaimed soil). The spatial heterogeneity of the soil cover has decreased in comparison with that prior to the reclamation. During the entire observation period, crop yields gained from the fields reclaimed with the use of the rotary tiller have been by 25-60% higher in comparison with those on the fields with traditional treatments. © 2011 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
