Heavy Metals Make Soil Enzymes 3 Times Weaker, Says a Soil Scientist from RUDN University

Heavy metals suppress enzyme activity in the soil by 3-3.5 times and have especially prominent effect on the enzymes that support carbon and sulfur circulation. This was discovered by a soil scientist from RUDN together with his colleagues from Chile, Germany, the UK and Venezuela. The data obtained by the team can lead to more efficient use and fertilization of agricultural lands.

RUDN University Biologists Studied the Effect of Jungles on Global Warming

Biologists from RUDN University described the role of tropical rainforests in the production of methane, the second most harmful greenhouse gas after CO2. It turned out that some areas of rainforests not only consumed methane but also emitted it.

In the problem of describing the asymptotic properties of generalized solutions of quasilinear parabolic equations in a neighborhood of the time of the singular exacerbation of the boundary regime (i.e. boundary data), at the present time, it were found limiting restrictions on the intensity of the exacerbation leading to solutions with a non zero but finite measure of the blow- up, i.e. the so-called S-modes are described.

Seminar “Mechano-sensitive blood proteins and their role in cellular hemostasis”
Hemostasis is a complex systemic reaction of the blood to damage or inflammation of the vascular endothelium. This process consists of several stages, from which two main phenomena can be distinguished: platelet aggregation and blood plasma coagulation. Many proteins are involved in the initiation, regulation, and inhibition of these processes, for example, they accelerate fibrin polymerization, platelet aggregation and activation, chemical signaling, and the propagation of coagulation autowaves. Primary cellular hemostasis in arteries, arterioles and venules is based on platelet aggregation at the site of injury.

Seminar “The simplest model of cold plasma”
We consider the reduction of the system of Euler-Maxwell equations describing the so-called cold (electron) plasma to a one-dimensional case. This is the simplest system of equations capable of describing plasma oscillations and their breaking. It is interesting because it allows for analytical consideration.
