Sufficient supply of NADPH is one of the most important factors affecting the productivity of biotransformation processes. In this study, construction of an efficient NADPH-regenerating system was attempted using direct phosphorylation of NADH by NADH kinase (Pos5p) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae for producing guanosine diphosphate (GDP)-l-fucose and(More)
BACKGROUND Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4G (eIF4G) is thought to influence the translational efficiencies of cellular mRNAs by its roles in forming an eIF4F-mRNA-PABP mRNP that is competent for attachment of the 43S preinitiation complex, and in scanning through structured 5' UTR sequences. We have tested this hypothesis by determining the(More)
A scalable FETI–DP (Dual-Primal Finite Element Tearing and Interconnecting) algorithm for the Stokes problem is developed and analyzed. Advantages of this approach are a coarse problem without primal pressure unknowns and the use of a relatively cheap lumped preconditioner. Especially in three dimensions, these advantages provide a more robust and faster(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to evaluate the changes in neuropsychological functioning in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) after temporal lobe resection. METHODS Fifty-four TLE patients were evaluated before and after surgery using comprehensive neuropsychological tests to assess general intelligence, executive functioning, language, verbal(More)
We describe the antimicrobial function of peptides derived from the C-terminus of the olive flounder LBP BPI precursor protein. The investigated peptides, namely, ofLBP1N, ofLBP2A, ofLBP4N, ofLBP5A, and ofLBP6A, formed α-helical structures, showing significant antimicrobial activity against several Gram-negative bacteria, Gram-positive bacteria, and the(More)
In this talk we will discuss a nonoverlapping domain decomposition pre-conditioner for the symmetric interior penalty Galerkin method [1, 2, 3]. The preconditioner is based on balancing domain decomposition by constraints [4]. Theoretical results on the condition number estimate of the preconditioned system will be presented along with numerical results.(More)
An iterative substructuring method with Lagrange multipliers is considered for the second order elliptic problem, which is a variant of the FETI-DP method. The standard FETI-DP formulation is associated with the saddle-point problem which is induced from the minimization problem with a constraint for imposing the continuity across the interface. Starting(More)
