The reversible transition of this fungal pathogen to a filamentous form that invades host tissue is important for its virulence. Although different signaling pathways such as a mitogen-activated protein kinase and a protein kinase A(More)
The utilization of wind energy for power generation purposes is becoming increasingly attractive and gaining a great share in the electrical power production market worldwide. In the present study, a mathematical model is developed to study the parameters that affect the electrical power generated by the wind turbines. The considered parameters are turbine(More)

This study investigated the potential application of allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) for the disinfection of water by examining the bactericidal effects of this compound against inoculated Escherichia coli in autoclaved, de-chlorinated tap water and against the natural microbiota (heterotrophic plate count bacteria, HPCs) in a surface water. Bacteriostatic(More)
