An oxidative pathway for the mineralization of 2,4-dinitrotoluene (2, 4-DNT) by Burkholderia sp. strain DNT has been reported previously. We report here the isolation of additional strains with the ability to mineralize 2,4-DNT by the same pathway and the isolation and characterization of bacterial strains that mineralize 2, 6-dinitrotoluene (2,6-DNT) by a(More)
Analysis of the nucleotide sequence of the form I ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO) genes (cbbL and cbbS) of the non-sulfur purple bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus indicated that the deduced amino acid sequence of the large subunit was not closely homologous to the large subunit from related organisms. Indeed, phylogenetic analysis(More)
The genes encoding enzymes of the Calvin-Benson-Bassham (CBB) reductive pentose phosphate pathway in Rhodobacter capsulatus are organized in at least two operons, each preceded by a separate cbbR gene, encoding potential LysR-type transcriptional activators. As a prelude to studies of cbb gene regulation in R. capsulatus, the nucleotide sequence of a(More)
Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes JS45 grows on nitrobenzene by a partially reductive pathway in which the intermediate hydroxylaminobenzene is enzymatically rearranged to 2-aminophenol by hydroxylaminobenzene mutase (HAB mutase). The properties of the enzyme, the reaction mechanism, and the evolutionary origin of the gene(s) encoding the enzyme are unknown. In(More)
Making use of the Volterra approach, black box modeling is applied to a large scale analog circuitry for an ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line) central office application. Reducing the number of free parameters through special assumptions on the Volterra kernels, one ends up with the Hammerstein model. Taking the first few taps of the Volterra kernels(More)
In linear system identification, optimal excitation signals can be determined using the Cramer-Rao bound. This problem has not been thoroughly studied for the nonlinear case. In this work, the Cramer-Rao bound for a factorisable Volterra model is derived. The analytical result is supported with simulation examples. The bound is then used to find the optimal(More)
Starting from the Volterra approach and assuming fading memory, a very efficient method to identify weakly non-linear systems is presented. Making special assumptions on the Volterra kernels, one ends up in the Hammerstein model, which has less complexity than the Volterra model, thus reducing the numerical effort. Using FIR filters to realize the(More)
