With the rapid development of network hardware technologies and network bandwidth, the high link speeds and huge amount of threats poses challenges to network intrusion detection systems, which must handle the higher network traffic and perform more complicated packet processing. In general, pattern matching is a highly computationally intensive process(More)
Streptothricin-F (STT-F), one of the early-discovered antibiotics, consists of three components, a β-lysine homopolymer, an aminosugar D-gulosamine, and an unusual bicyclic streptolidine. The biosynthesis of streptolidine is a long-lasting but unresolved puzzle. Herein, a combination of genetic/biochemical/structural approaches was used to unravel this(More)
Polystyrene-divinylbenzene copolymer functionalized with copper-iminodiacetate complex was prepared in situ for the capillary electrochromatographic separation of amino acids and oligopeptides. The steps included silanization of the fused-silica capillary column, functionalization, polymerization, hydrolysis and complexation. For having a homogeneous(More)
Teicoplanin A2-2 (Tei)/A40926 is the last-line antibiotic to treat multidrug-resistant Gram-positive bacterial infections, e.g., methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE). This class of antibiotics is powered by the N-acyltransferase (NAT) Orf11*/Dbv8 through N-acylation on glucosamine at the central(More)
Breast masses with a radiologic stellate pattern often transform into malignancies, but their tendency to be of low histologic grade yields a better survival rate compared with tumors with other patterns on mammography screening. This study was designed to investigate the correlation of histologic grade with stellate features extracted from the coronal(More)
Utilization of N-acetylhexosamine in bifidobacteria requires the specific lacto-N-biose/galacto-N-biose pathway, a pathway differing from the Leloir pathway while establishing symbiosis between humans and bifidobacteria. The gene lnpB in the pathway encodes a novel hexosamine kinase NahK, which catalyzes the formation of N-acetylhexosamine 1-phosphate(More)
In biological systems, methylation is most commonly performed by methyltransferases (MTs) using the electrophilic methyl source S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) via the S(N)2 mechanism. (2S,3S)-β-Methylphenylalanine, a nonproteinogenic amino acid, is a building unit of the glycopeptide antibiotic mannopeptimycin. The gene product of mppJ from the(More)
Due to the fast growth of multimedia content, the digital preservation emerges as an important technology that prolongs the life of digital objects. For audio-visual contents, we face the obsolescence problem in both supporting hardware/software and data representation formats. Migration strategy is a solution for achieving high-quality archival and easy(More)
