We report the complete genome sequence of Zymomonas mobilis ZM4 (ATCC31821), an ethanologenic microorganism of interest for the production of fuel ethanol. The genome consists of 2,056,416 base pairs forming a circular chromosome with 1,998 open reading frames (ORFs) and three ribosomal RNA transcription units. The genome lacks recognizable genes for… (More)
This paper presents Janus, a novel MAC protocol for full–duplex wireless networks. Unlike other full-duplex MACs, Janus allows partially interfering nodes to cooperate by finding the appropriate transmission rates based on interference levels, making better use of the channel. Computing the optimal schedule and transmission rates is NPComplete, so Janus… (More)
Although a severe shortage of organs in transplantation can be overcome by using xenotransplantation of porcine donor organs, profound immune rejection to xenogeneic antigens remains a main obstacle. To elucidate the role of hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) on xenogeneic immune responses, we investigated its effects on porcine aortic endothelial cells (PAECs).… (More)
As a part of a study developing a biological reactive barrier system to treat nitrate-contaminated groundwater, the effects of reactive media composition and co-contaminants on sulfur-oxidizing autotrophic denitrification were investigated. The size of sulfur granules affected the denitrification rates; kinetic constants of 2.883, 2.949, and 0.677… (More)
This is the first complete genome sequence of the Enterobacter aerogenes species. Here we present the genome sequence of E. aerogenes KCTC 2190, which contains 5,280,350 bp with a G + C content of 54.8 mol%, 4,912 protein-coding genes, and 109 structural RNAs.
Bioethanol has been recognized as a potential alternative energy source. Among various ethanol-producing microbes, Zymomonas mobilis has acquired special attention due to its higher ethanol yield and tolerance. However, cellular metabolism in Z. mobilis remains unclear, hindering its practical application for bioethanol production. To elucidate such… (More)
Atmospheric pressure plasmas have been used as a therapy for cancer. However, the fairly large size and rigidity of present plasma-delivery systems obstructs the precise treatment of tumors in harder-to-reach internal organs such as the lungs, pancreas, and duodenum. In order to improve the targeted delivery of plasmas a highly flexible microplasma jet… (More)
A flexible microplasma endoscope based on a 15 μm hollow-core glass optical fiber is fabricated, and tumor cell apoptotic analysis supports its potential use in targeted cancer therapies. The optical-fiber microplasma jet reveals antitumor activity at a certain plasma dose in animal studies.
Particle focusing in planar geometries is essentially required in order to develop cost-effective lab-on-a-chips, such as cell counting and point-of-care (POC) devices. In this study, a novel method for sheathless particle focusing, called "Elasto-Inertial Particle Focusing", was demonstrated in a straight microchannel. The particles were notably aligned… (More)
This article reports on the full genome sequence of Paenibacillus terrae HPL-003, which is a gram-positive, endospore-forming, xylanase-producing bacterium isolated from soil found in forest residue on Gara Mountain. The strain HPL-003 contains 6,083,395 bp with a G+C content of 46.77 mol%, 2,633 protein-coding genes, and 117 structural RNAs.
