This study assessed the effects of assigned versus self-selected goals and contingent versus noncontingent gameplay conditions, delivered during computer-assisted math computation drill-and-practice sessions. Participants were 20 high school pupils with learning disabilities who had active Individualized Education Plan (IEP) goals that targeted the(More)
A recently identified polysaccharide utilization locus (PUL) from Bacteroides ovatus ATCC 8483 is transcriptionally up-regulated during growth on galacto- and glucomannans. It encodes two glycoside hydrolase family 26 (GH26) β-mannanases, BoMan26A and BoMan26B, and a GH36 α-galactosidase, BoGal36A. The PUL also includes two glycan-binding proteins,(More)
Cytophaga hutchinsonii, a member of the phylum Bacteroidetes, employs a novel collection of cell-associated proteins to digest crystalline cellulose. Other Bacteroidetes rely on cell surface proteins related to the starch utilization system (Sus) proteins SusC and SusD to bind oligosaccharides and import them across the outer membrane for further digestion.(More)
