Summary of "Transformation of acetaminophen in natural surface water and the change of aquatic microbes."

The kinetics and transformation pathway of acetaminophen (APAP) in natural surface water (one sample from the Yangtze River and three others from different lakes), and the changes of aquatic microbes in surface water were revealed in this study. Both photochemical and microbial reactions contributed to the transformation of APAP under irradiance of 1.0-250 mW/cm. Microbial compositions were significantly different among surface water, and same microbial transformation product (1,4-bezoquinone) was detected as the predominant biotransformation intermediate in four studied surface water, but the lag phase (12-50-h) for the transformation was highly dependent on the aquatic microbial abundance and composition. The lag phase no longer existed with irradiance increased to 5.9 mW/cm. Aquatic microbial abundance and composition were influenced by the presence of APAP and radiation, and the influence extent was dependent on microbial species. The findings demonstrated that the individual contribution of biotic and abiotic process to the overall transformation of APAP and maybe other phenol in surface water varied as the background composition of surface water and the external environment changed, and biotransformation dominated (>73%) the overall transformation of APAP in surface water.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any significant change in measures of climate (such as temperature, precipitation, or wind) lasting for an extended period (decades or longer). It may result from natural factors such as changes in the sun's intensity, natural processes within the climate system such as changes in ocean circulation, or human activities.

An inheritable change in cells manifested by changes in cell division and growth and alterations in cell surface properties. It is induced by infection with a transforming virus.

A complex mixture of organisms (algae, cyanobacteria, heterotrophic microbes, detritus, etc.) clinging on the surfaces of plants and other objects projecting from the bottom sediments of aquatic ecosystems.

Water that emerges to the surface of the earth from underground.

Environmental reservoirs of water related to natural WATER CYCLE by which water is obtained for various purposes. This includes but is not limited to watersheds, aquifers and springs.
