Leptospirosis is a widespread zoonosis caused by pathogenic Leptospira spp. It is an important infectious disease that affects humans and animals. The disease causes economic losses as it affects livestock, with decreased milk production and death. Our group is investigating the genome sequences of L. interrogans targeting surface-exposed proteins because,(More)
Pathogenic species of the genus Leptospira are the etiological agents of leptospirosis, the most widespread zoonosis. Mechanisms involved in leptospiral pathogenesis are not well understood. By data mining the genome sequences of Leptospira interrogans we have identified two proteins predicted to be surface exposed, LIC10821 and LIC10064. Immunofluorescence(More)
The dibenzylbutyrolactolic lignan (-)-cubebin was isolated from dry seeds of Piper cubeba L. (Piperaceae). (-)-Cubebin possesses anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antimicrobial activities. Doxorubicin (DXR) is a topoisomerase-interactive agent that may induce single- and double-strand breaks, intercalate into the DNA and generate oxygen free radicals. Here,(More)
In this paper we describe commonly used fixture setup strategies as well as their disadvantages and advantages. We propose a dependency model and a test fixture sharing model that allow the definition of a new fixture setup strategy. This strategy promotes code reuse by sharing fixture setups between test classes and execution reuse by sharing test fixture(More)
This paper presents a web framework for test automation. This framework automates tests specified using the technique User Scenarios through User Interaction Diagrams (US-UID). US-UIDs represent customer requirements and are created a priori to the development of the application code. The goal of this proposal is the execution of US-UIDs as acceptance tests(More)
