The parallelization of the dynamic programming algorithm for the integral knapsack problem is approached from several perspectives. Two of them proceed by dividing the set of objects, while a third one proceeds by partitioning the set of capacities. Furthermore, we propose a new sequential algorithm and its parallelization by reducing the integral knapsack(More)
The DNA region encoding the mature form of a pneumococcal murein hydrolase (LytB) was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. LytB was purified by affinity chromatography, and its activity was suggested to be the first identified endo-beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase of Streptococcus pneumoniae. LytB can remove a maximum of only 25% of the radioactivity from(More)
The HpaR-mediated regulation of the hpa-meta operon (Pg promoter) of the 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid catabolic pathway of Escherichia coli has been studied. The HpaR regulator was purified to homogeneity showing that it is able to bind selectively to 4-hydroxyphenylacetic, 3-hydroxyphenylacetic and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acids, which act as inducers of(More)
Active containment systems based on the controlled expression of a lethal gene are designed to increase containment of recombinant micro-organisms used for environmental applications. A major drawback in containment is the existence of mutations that generate surviving cells that cease to respond to the toxic effect of the lethal function. In this work the(More)
