For future application scenarios of resource constrained and low cost smart cooperating objects, miscellaneous technologies for wireless connectivity are existing or upcoming in the near future. But further cross domain middleware and dedicated communication protocols to provide syntactic and semantic interoperability and not only technical interoperability(More)
The first aim of this study was to compare an ambulatory five-lead ECG system with the commercially available breast belt measuring devices; Polar S810i and Suunto t6, in terms of R-R interval measures and heart rate variability (HRV) indices. The second aim was to compare different HRV spectral analysis methods. Nineteen young males (aged between 22 and 31(More)
For Service-oriented Architectures, Web Services are claimed as state of the art to connect business execution layers as well as networking devices. Additionally, the deployment of Wireless Sensor Networks became applicable over the last years. The usage of application layer gateways and proxy concepts allow the integration of these sensor networks into(More)
In this report we examine the PEP-dependent phosphotransferase systems (PTSs) of Listeria monocytogenes EGD-e, especially those involved in glucose and cellobiose transport. This L. monocytogenes strain possesses in total 86 pts genes, encoding 29 complete PTSs for the transport of carbohydrates and sugar alcohols, and several single PTS components,(More)
BACKGROUND In the environment as well as in the vertebrate intestine, Listeriae have access to complex carbohydrates like maltodextrins. Bacterial exploitation of such compounds requires specific uptake and utilization systems. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We could show that Listeria monocytogenes and other Listeria species contain genes/gene products(More)
This study presents a new robust method of developing quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models based on fuzzy mappings. An important issue in QSAR modelling is of robustness, i.e., model should not undergo overtraining and model performance should be least sensitive to the modelling errors associated with the chosen descriptors and(More)
The human pathogen L. monocytogenes is a facultatively intracellular bacterium that survives and replicates in the cytosol of many mammalian cells. The listerial metabolism, especially under intracellular conditions, is still poorly understood. Recent studies analyzed the carbon metabolism of L. monocytogenes by the (13)C isotopologue perturbation method in(More)
UNLABELLED Aim was to elucidate autonomic responses to dynamic and static (isometric) exercise of the lower limbs eliciting the same moderate heart rate (HR) response. METHOD 23 males performed two kinds of voluntary exercise in a supine position at similar heart rates: static exercise (SE) of the lower limbs (static leg press) and dynamic exercise (DE)(More)
