Abstract Different artificial ageing treatments were applied to fresh incinerator bottom ash with the aim of promoting/accelerating the natural reactions occurring over time on the mineral phases in the material. The weathering treatments included accelerated carbonation, treatment with air and treatment with nitrogen gas. Both fresh and treated bottom ashes were characterized for their mineralogical composition, acid neutralization capacity and leaching behavior of metals. The results were compared to those obtained from similar characterization of bottom ash samples weathered under atmospheric conditions for 4 years. The findings from the experimental campaign indicated that both the release of metals and the type of solubility-controlling solid phases varied as a function of the duration and type of ageing treatment. The most appreciable influence on mineralogy, acid neutralization behavior and metal leaching was observed for the 48 h carbonation treatment. It was also observed that 4-day aeration of bottom ash was capable of producing similar buffering behavior to that displayed by naturally aged bottom ash.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
