Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a human pathogen associated with gastroenteritis caused by the ingestion of contaminated raw seafood. V. parahaemolyticus is able to survive exposure to low temperatures typical of those used for the refrigeration of foods by entering a viable but nonculturable (VBNC) state. The VBNC cells can regain culturability and renewed(More)
Burkholderia pseudomallei is the causative agent of melioidosis, a severe invasive disease of humans and animals. Initial screening of a B. pseudomallei signature-tagged mutagenesis library identified an attenuated mutant with a transposon insertion in a gene encoding the sensor component of an uncharacterised two-component signal transduction system(More)
The important studies of Peebles, and Bond and Efstathiou have led to the formula C ℓ = const/[ℓ(ℓ+1)] aimed at describing the lower order multipoles of the CMBR temperature variations caused by density perturbations with the flat spectrum. Clearly, this formula requires amendments, as it predicts an infinitely large monopole C 0 , and a dipole moment C 1(More)
