Two xylanases, xynA of Bacillus pumilus and xyn II of Trichoderma reesei, were purified and then modified by the attachment of pentaammineruthenium, thereby resulting in the generation of a xylanase with veratryl alcohol oxidase activity. Hydrolytic activity of T. reesei xyn II on soluble xylans was unchanged by modification with pentaammineruthenium;(More)
The primary aim of this study was to prospectively investigate whether there was an association between the duration of post-operative catheterisation and the incidence of bladder spasm in children following ureteric reimplantation surgery. A secondary aim was to investigate whether other surgical and post-operative factors had an effect on the incidence of(More)
