A taxonomic study was carried out on a novel bacterial strain, designated B108(T), which was isolated from a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-degrading consortium, enriched from deep-sea water of the Indian Ocean. The isolate was Gram-reaction-negative, rod-shaped and non-motile. Growth of strain B108(T) was observed in 1-15 % (w/v) NaCl and at 10-39(More)
A novel polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-degrading bacterium, strain H25T, which was isolated from deep-sea water of the Indian Ocean, was studied phenotypically, genotypically and phylogenetically. Strain H25T can utilize several PAHs including phenanthrene and fluoranthene as sole carbon sources. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain H25T showed the(More)
— The optimal and distributed provisioning of high throughput in mesh networks is known as a fundamental but hard problem. The situation is exacerbated in a wireless setting due to the interference among local wireless transmissions. In this paper, we propose a cross-layer optimization framework for throughput maximization in wireless mesh networks, in(More)
We investigate the feature design and classification architectures in temporal action localization. This application focuses on detecting and labeling actions in untrimmed videos, which brings more challenge than classifying presegmented videos. The major difficulty for action localization is the uncertainty of action occurrence and utilization of(More)
SOX9 belongs to the SOX (Sry-related high-mobility group box) family and acts as a transcription factor that plays a central role in the development and differentiation of multiple cell lineages. Recent studies have demonstrated that SOX9 is required for the carcinogenesis in several cancer types. The aim of this study was to investigate the(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore cell death and apoptosis in rat hippocampal neurons at different time points after ischemia, hypoxia and reperfusion injury and to elucidate time window characteristics in ischemia neuronal injury. METHODS Hippocampal neurons were obtained from rat embryo and were cultured in vitro. The ischemia and reperfusion of cultured rat(More)
Achieving optimal transmission throughput in data networks is known as a fundamental but hard problem. The situation is exacerbated in multi-hop wireless networks due to the interference among local wireless transmissions. In this paper, we propose a general modeling and solution framework for the throughput optimization problem in wireless networks. In our(More)
Bacillus amyloliquefaciens NJN-6 produces volatile compounds (VOCs) that inhibit the growth and spore germination of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense. Among the total of 36 volatile compounds detected, 11 compounds completely inhibited fungal growth. The antifungal activity of these compounds suggested that VOCs can play important roles over short and long(More)
— This paper proposes a distributed optimization framework for wireless multihop sensor networks base on a game theoretic approach. We show that the cross-layer optimization problem can be decomposed into two subproblems corresponding to two separate layers (the physical and the application layers) of the overall system. By modelling each subproblem as a(More)
A taxonomic study was carried out on strain B106(T), which was isolated from a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading consortium, enriched with deep seawater from the Indian Ocean. The isolate was Gram-negative, oxidase- and catalase-positive, rod-shaped and motile by means of one polar flagellum. Growth was observed at salinities of 0.5-11 % and at(More)
