Summary of "Cyclical patterns and (im)mobilization mechanisms of phosphorus in sediments from a small creek estuary: Evidence from in situ monthly sampling and indoor experiments."

Internal phosphorus (P) mobility is crucially important to overlying water ecosystems, while its spatiotemporal variations and mechanisms remain to be studied, especially in dynamic estuarine sediments. In this study, in situ monthly field sampling and indoor experiments were combined to measure the soluble reactive P (SRP), soluble Fe and diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT)-labile P/S in the overlying water, sediment and porewater in the Jiuxi River Estuary by employing high-resolution dialysis (HR-Peeper), the DGT technique and a MicroRhizon sampler. The consistent tendency between DGT-labile S and P in most seasons indicates that P mobilization was dominated by intense dissimilatory sulfate reduction (DSR), causing high SRP concentrations and active exchange with the overlying water. The circannual cyclical pattern of P is summarized, where in addition to temperature, monthly changes in runoff and tidal range are crucial external factors to control long-term P cycling via changed redox environments and terrigenous materials inputs. The mobile P, Fe and S present higher values during flood tides and lower values during ebb tides in tidal simulation experiments, demonstrating that the short-term cycling of P, Fe and S in intertidal surface sediments is highly redox-sensitive and controlled by tidal processes. The results also reveal that DSR greatly facilitates P mobility and release, while sediment oxidation and the induced enhancement in DIR and Fe cycling can effectively control P immobilization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Stable phosphorus atoms that have the same atomic number as the element phosphorus, but differ in atomic weight. P-31 is a stable phosphorus isotope.

Phosphorus used in foods or obtained from food. This element is a major intracellular component which plays an important role in many biochemical pathways relating to normal physiological functions. High concentrations of dietary phosphorus can cause nephrocalcinosis which is associated with impaired kidney function. Low concentrations of dietary phosphorus cause an increase in calcitriol in the blood and osteoporosis.

Unstable isotopes of phosphorus that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. P atoms with atomic weights 28-34 except 31 are radioactive phosphorus isotopes.

Inorganic compounds that contain phosphorus as an integral part of the molecule.

Signal transduction mechanisms whereby calcium mobilization (from outside the cell or from intracellular storage pools) to the cytoplasm is triggered by external stimuli. Calcium signals are often seen to propagate as waves, oscillations, spikes, sparks, or puffs. The calcium acts as an intracellular messenger by activating calcium-responsive proteins.
