This report describes the first successful genetic engineering of tolerance to salt in an agriculturally important species of woody plants by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation with the codA gene of Arthrobacter globiformis. This gene encodes choline oxidase, which catalyzes the oxidation of choline to glycinebetaine. The binary plasmid vector pGC95.091,(More)
Background: Substantial research in the software evolution field aims to recover knowledge about development from the project history that is archived in repositories, such as a Version Control System (VCS). However, the data that is archived in these repositories can be analyzed at different levels of granularity. Although software evolution is a(More)
Background. Glucose, an osmotic agent generally used in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) dialysate, has a critical characteristic of forming advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs). We undertook this study to investigate whether a possible osmotic agent, trehalose, formed fewer AGEs than glucose. Methods. Hemoglobin (Hb), a counter-protein of(More)
BACKGROUND Automated nontreponemal and treponemal test reagents based on the latex agglutination method (immunoticles auto3 RPR: ITA3RPR and immunoticles auto3 TP: ITA3TP) have been developed to improve the issues of conventional manual methods such as their subjectivity, a massive amount of assays, and so on. We evaluated these reagents in regards to their(More)
We evaluated TP-LAIA (anti-TP latex agglutination immunoassay) and compared the results with those obtained using Serological Tests for Syphilis (STS), namely Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) method and Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) test. We also examined early-stage antibody reaction using rabbits infected with active pathogen, and analyzed(More)
