This paper is devoted to exploring the properties of positive solutions for a class of nonlinear integral equation(s) involving the Bessel potentials, which are equivalent to certain partial differential equations under appropriate integrability conditions. With the help of regularity lifting theorem, we obtain an integrability interval of positive solutions and then extend the integrability interval to the whole [1, ∞) by the properties of the Bessel kernels and some delicate analysis techniques. Meanwhile, the radial symmetry and the sharp exponential decay of positive solutions are also obtained. Furthermore, as an application, we establish the uniqueness theorem of the corresponding partial differential equations.
