Bifidobacterium longum strains predominate in the colonic microbiota of breast-fed infants. Here we report the complete genome sequence of B. longum subsp. longum KACC 91563, isolated from feces of neonates. A single circular chromosome of 2,385,301 bp contains 1,980 protein-coding genes, 56 tRNA genes, and 3 rRNA operons.
Clusterin is a secretory glycoprotein, which is highly up-regulated in a variety of normal and injury tissues undergoing apoptosis including infarct region of the myocardium. Here, we report that clusterin protects H9c2 cardiomyocytes from H2O2-induced apoptosis by triggering the activation of Akt and GSK-3β. Treatment with H2O2 induces apoptosis of H9c2(More)
The dissimilatory metal-reducing bacterium, Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, reduced tellurite (Te(IV), TeO(3)(2-)) to elemental tellurium under anaerobic conditions resulting in the intracellular accumulation of needle shaped crystalline Te(0) nanorods. Fatty acid analyses showed that toxic Te(IV) increased the unsaturated fatty acid composition of the lipid(More)
Due to the heavy current passing through the steel wver plates of power transformers. some areas are subject to serious local overheating. It affects the safety and reliability ofthe expensive equipment and power delivery Therefore, the accurate calculation of eddy current losses and power loss density distribution is extremely irnponant for the proper(More)
Lactobacillus salivarius is a well-known lactic acid bacterium to which increasing attention has been paid recently for use as probiotics for humans and animals. L. salivarius NIAS840 was first isolated from broiler chicken feces, displaying antimicrobial activities against multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella enterica serovar(More)
In this paper, a carefully designed conductive shield plate is presented, which helps to improve localization of the electric field distribution induced by transcranial magnetic stimulation for neuron stimulation. The shield plate is introduced between a figure-of-eight coil and the head. In order to accurately predict the field distribution inside the(More)
Equations derived from the continuum design sensitivity analysis (CDSA), in conjunction with the material derivatives for a continuous medium and using the energy-based approach, have been successfully applied to the calculation of both total force and force distributions. The resultant expressions are similar to the Maxwell Stress Tensor, Magnetic Charge(More)
This paper presents a generalized continuum design sensitivity formula that is applicable to any shape design problems of high-frequency devices in frequency domain. The derived sensitivity formula is expressed in terms of surface integrals over a part of the interface between different materials and of the conducting boundary undergoing shape modification(More)
Industrial effluents constitute a major source of metal pollution of aquatic bodies. Moreover, due to their environmental persistence, toxic metal pollution is of special concern. Microbial reduction is considered a promising strategy for toxic metal removal among the several methods available for metal remediation. Here, we describe the coremediation of(More)
Linear hybrid stepping motors (LHSMs) have a simple structure and provide ripple-free holding force at the aligned position. Despite these attractive features, however, an LHSM delivers strong thrust vibrations during position-to-position movement that are the dominant cause of the positioning error, mechanical stress, and acoustic noise. In order to(More)
