Biological nitrogen fixation is a complex process requiring multiple genes working in concert. To date, the Klebsiella pneumoniae nif gene cluster, divided into seven operons, is one of the most studied systems. Its nitrogen fixation capacity is subject to complex cascade regulation and physiological limitations. In this report, the entire K. pneumoniae nif(More)
BACKGROUND Consolidated bioprocessing (CBP), integrating cellulase production, cellulose saccharification, and fermentation into one step has been widely considered as the ultimate low-cost configuration for producing second-generation fuel ethanol. However, the requirement of a microbial strain able to hydrolyze cellulosic biomass and convert the resulting(More)
Seventeen novel 3-methyl-4-oxo-3,4-dihydroimidazo[5,1-d][1,2,3,5]tetrazine-8-carboxylate and -carboxamide derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their growth inhibition in seven human solid tumor and a human leukemia HL-60 cell lines. Compound IVa showed more activity than the other compounds and the positive control temozolomide. In the presence of(More)
The method of monitoring the wear of piston ring with a magneto-resistive sensor for a marine diesel engine is presented in the paper. The magnetic field intensity variations caused by both the wear and the motion of piston ring are analyzed by simulation. The theoretical basis for monitoring the wear of piston ring with the magneto-resistive sensor for the(More)
PURPOSE Microvascular endothelial integrity is important for maintaining the blood-brain barrier (BBB). However, subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) disrupts this integrity, making the BBB dysfunctional-an important pathophysiological change after SAH. Angiopoietin-1 (Ang-1) and angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) regulate microvascular permeability by balancing each other's(More)
In the structure of the title compound, C(12)H(11)N(3)O(3)·H(2)O, the dihedral angle formed by the benzene and isoxazole rings is 2.03 (8)°. The mol-ecular conformation is stabilized by an intra-molecular O-H⋯N hydrogen bond. In the crystal structure, mol-ecules are linked into a three-dimesional network by inter-molecular N-H⋯O, O-H⋯N and O-H⋯O hydrogen(More)
