Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) are susceptible to a variety of attacks that threaten their operation and the provided services. Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) may act as defensive mechanisms, since they monitor network activities in order to detect malicious actions performed by intruders, and then initiate the appropriate countermeasures. IDS for(More)
The mechanism of methyl-beta-D-thiogalactoside-phosphate (TMG-P) expulsion from Streptococcus pyogenes was studied. The expulsion elicited by glucose was not due to exchange vectorial transphosphorylation between the expelled TMG and the incoming glucose since more beta-galactoside was displaced than glucose taken up, and the stoichiometry between TMG and(More)
Streptococcus pyogenes pregrown on lactose took up glucose, lactose, or methyl beta-D-thiogalactopyranoside (MeSGal or TMG) by a phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system. MeSGal accumulated in the cell as MeSGal-phosphate (MeSGalP). Three effects were noted when various sugars were added to MeSGal preloaded cells: (i) no decrease in(More)

Qualitatively, the protein and fatty acid composition of purified mesosomal vesicles and the plasma membrane isolated from Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538P are identical, the major difference between these two cellular components being only quantitative in nature. Mesosomal vesicles and plasma membranes, when subjected to acidic or neutral disk gel(More)
Dried and wet mouse fibroblast monolayers with labeled collagenous substrate were used to study the effects of lipoteichoic acid (LTA) on cellular prolyl hydroxylase activity. LTA is a scavenger of cations, and Fe2+ is essential for prolyl hydroxylase activity. Surprisingly, addition of LTA to dried monolayers resulted in increased prolyl hydroxylase(More)
The toxicity of lipoteichoic acid (LTA) from Streptococcus pyogenes type 12 was investigated by using mouse fibroblasts in culture in the absence of serum. Morphologically, while low concentrations of LTA elicited a subtle effect characterized by progressive cellular degeneration with practically no release of protein, larger concentrations (greater than 50(More)
