We evaluated the effects of interspecific competition on ant bait performance with two urban pest ants, the Argentine ant, Linepithema humile (Mayr), and the little black ant, Monomorium minimum (Buckley). In a laboratory study, the impact of a solid sulfluramid bait on M. minimum was diminished when L. humile were present, whereas the presence of M.(More)
The amino acid racemase with broad substrate specificity from Pseudomonas putida DSM 3263 was overproduced and characterized with respect to application in an integrated multi-step process (e.g., dynamic kinetic resolution) that--theoretically--would allow for 100% chemical yield and 100% enantiomeric excess. Overexpression of the racemase gene in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of craniofacial 3D models produced in the standardized selective laser sintering (SLS) technique from multislice computed tomography (MSCT) data sets in comparison with patient data and to investigate the effect of potential causes of inaccuracies. MATERIALS AND METHODS 19 models were considered and examined by MSCT. The(More)
