Metallic alloys show complex chemistries that are not yet understood so far. It has been widely accepted that behind the composition selection lies a short-range-order mechanism for solid solutions. The present paper addresses this fundamental question by examining the face-centered-cubic Cu-Zn α-brasses. A new structural approach, the(More)
UNLABELLED We have previously shown that IFIT1 is primarily responsible for the antiviral action of interferon (IFN) alpha/beta against parainfluenza virus type 5 (PIV5), selectively inhibiting the translation of PIV5 mRNAs. Here we report that while PIV2, PIV5, and mumps virus (MuV) are sensitive to IFIT1, nonrubulavirus members of the paramyxoviridae such(More)
Effect of solid solution treatment (T4) on stress corrosion cracking (SCC) behavior of an as-forged Mg-6.7%Zn-1.3%Y-0.6%Zr (in wt.%) alloy has been investigated using slow strain rate tensile (SSRT) testing in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution. The results demonstrated that the SCC susceptibility index (ISCC) of as-forged samples was 0.95 and its elongation-to-failure(More)
Through investigating and comparing the fatigue behavior of an as-forged Mg-6.7Zn-1.3Y-0.6Zr (wt.%) alloy before and after solid solution treatment (T4) in laboratory air, the effect of T4 treatment on fatigue crack initiation was disclosed. S-N curves illustrated that the fatigue strength of as-forged samples was 110 MPa, whereas the fatigue strength of T4(More)
The main objective of this research was to add genotyping information to previous phenotyping findings of Pakistani guava for the purposes of selective breeding. Inter-primer binding site (iPBS) and microsatellite (SSR) markers were used to assess the molecular variation and genetic structure of 51 promising Pakistani guava (Psidium guajava L.) genotypes(More)
Two new species of ectotrophic root-infecting fungi pathogenic to warm-season turfgrasses are described. Magnaporthe garrettii P. T. W. Wong & M. L. Dickinson sp. nov. causes a serious patch disease on couch (Cynodon dactylon) bowling greens in South Australia, and Magnaporthe griffinii P. T. W. Wong & A.M. Stirling sp. nov. is associated with a disease(More)
The potential service providers, customers, as well as financial institutions are constructing geographically the largest global business net in the business history over the Internet. The payment mechanism needed for this new business medium is a very important issue. This paper presents a simple debit-based electronic payment protocol QIPP (Qudro-way(More)
