    soil and rock. While doing so, divalent amounts of cations from mineral sources dissolve into the water supply (USGS). Water hardness is not harmful to people’s health. In fact, these minerals can be beneficial, as humans need minerals to survive. However, water hardness begins to cause problems when it comes its constant use in the home and in appliances. For instance, when the water is heated, it forms solid deposits of calcium carbonate. This type of mineral build-up can decrease the lifespan and efficiency of…

    an important resource needed for our subsistence & is required on a global level. The various hydrologic cycles are necessary in order to preserve the balance of our ecosystem. Thus, good quality water is necessary for our survival. Chemical & biological composition are two criteria for evaluating water quality. Water hardness can be defined by the presence of divalent cations dissolved in a water sample. The divalent cations usually present are Ca2+ & Mg2+ and these cations bestow chemical…

    explained above). A net negative charge can be created, which is the common charge amongst NZ soils. Opposite charges attract, therefore, cations will be attracted to the soil surface, not anions (like charges repel). This is electrostatic attraction, which will cause cation exchange. Cation exchange is the exchange between the cations held on the soil colloid surface and the soil solution. Since Calcium is a cation (Ca2+), this will be attracted to the anions. Furthermore, because Calcium is a…

    This form of competency is not encoded in the cells genes like in natural transformation, instead it is created in the laboratory and forced upon the cells. Scientists will do this with chemicals and pulses of electricity. To create competency with chemicals scientist will typically use the divalent method which involves incubating, or keeping the cells at a suitable temperature, while being exposed to divalent ions, such as calcium chloride over ice (Timothy, 2016). The purpose here is to…

    Two important factors which contribute to the delayed healing of diabetic wounds are infection and over expression of Matrix Metalloprotease (MMPs). The MMPs are a set of proteases which play a major role in extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling in case of normal wound healing. However when over expressed these MMPs tend to delay the wound healing process by degrading the newly formed ECM. It is observed that the MMPs are highly over expressed in case of diabetic wounds. Alendronate is a…

    Another illness is Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome in which divalent IgG antibodies cross link the presynaptic voltage-gated calcium channels, disrupting the normal parallel architecture of the channels, and reducing the number of active zone complexes (Shillito et al., 2004). This ultimately results in the amount of Acetylcholine released into the synapase. This syndrome usually occurs in middle-aged patients , and it is reported as rare in children(Hirsch,2007). According to Neuromuscular…

    Both divalent cations enter the plant’s roots via macro-sized nutrient pores and continue through the plant by two modes of transportation: apoplastic and symplastic pathways. The apoplastic pathway is the non-selective pathway that silver also uses to move between the cells. This is only restricted by any interactions with the cell membranes lining this pathway. The symplastic pathway utilizes ionic channels and protein pumps [15]. For cellular uptake of strontium and calcium, cells may use…

    One of the qualities of lead that make it one of the most highly studied heavy metals is its ability to enter and distributes into the body’s organ systems. Inorganic lead is absorbed by coming into contact with the skin, ingestion, and inhalation.* It is debated whether ingestion of lead or inhalation of lead caused the most significant damage and which one occurs more frequently. The physiological effects of lead can be seen soon after exposure. The uptake of lead in the body is influenced by…

    Surface water contains methylmercury ranging from 1% to 35% of total mercury (3). Mercury vapor is transformed into water-soluble forms, mainly by oxidation to divalent inorganic mercury, Hg2+ (2). Then it is returned back to the earth's surface in precipitation (2). Since Mercury is deposited to surface water it is subject to methylation by microorganisms; therefore, methylmercury enters the aquatic food chain. (2) Plankton and other smaller organisms, start the food chain by taking in the…

    which in turn results in changing the alginate properties and functions. The molecular weight of commercially available sodium alginates range between 32,000 and 400,000 g/mol. [2] Alginate are particularly attractive in wound healing, drug delivery, cosmetics, and tissue engineering applications, since they are biomaterials, inert and do not interact with biological systems, and depending on the cross-linker types and cross-linking methods can the drug molecules, from small chemical drugs to…
