By using a beta-lysin-producing test strain and anti-beta + delta lysins, the lysins of Staphylococcus aureus strains can easily be determined. The method was used for examination of the haemolysin production of 300 S. aureus strains isolated from human post mortem material and bovine mastitis. The results were cross-checked with those of three other typing(More)
Photosensitizers (PS) are ideally devoid of any activity in the absence of photoactivation, and rely on molecular oxygen for the formation of singlet oxygen ((1)O2) to produce cellular damage. Off-targets and tumor hypoxia therefore represent obstacles for the use of PS for cancer photodynamic therapy. Herein, we describe the characterization of OR141, a(More)
This study investigates the interaction of micron-sized coal particles entrained into lean methane – air premixed flames. In a typical axisymmetric burner, coal particles are made to naturally entrain into a stream of the premixed reactants using an orifice plate setup. Pittsburgh seam coal dust, with three particle sizes in the range of 0 to 25 μm, 53 to(More)

Using purified enzyme in agar gel precipitation, it was shown that staphylococci produce two types of coagulase different in biological action and immunological property. The homologous enzyme is specific for human fibrinogen in strains belonging to phage groups I, II, III and specific for bovine fibrinogen in strains of phage group IV. The heterologous(More)
