Mouse acidic mammalian chitinase (AMCase) plays important physiological roles in defense and nutrition. AMCase is composed of an N-terminal catalytic domain (CatD) and a C-terminal chitin-binding domain (CBD). We expressed CatD of mouse AMCase as a recombinant fusion protein with Protein A and V5-His in Escherichia coli (Protein A-CatD-V5-His), evaluated(More)
The present work describes a new approach to integrating structural knowledge into the image classification process. First, a fuzzy classifier produces a fuzzy partition of the image. Then, the defuzzified (crisp) partition is tried to be improved. According to the membership degrees in the fuzzy partition, the system selects a set of pixels and associates(More)
