Toxicity mechanisms of Bacillus thuringiensis Cry insecticidal proteins involve membrane insertion and lytic pore formation in lipid bilayers of the target larval midgut cell membranes. The B. thuringiensis Cry4Ba mosquito-larvicidal protein has been shown to be capable of permeabilizing liposome vesicles and of forming ion channels in planar lipid(More)
An immunosensor based on surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPR imaging) using a specific monoclonal antibody 11E5 (MAb 11E5) was developed for the detection of the seed-borne bacterium Acidovorax avenae subsp. citrulli (Aac), which causes fruit blotch in watermelons and cantaloupes, and compared to the conventional ELISA technique. The 1:40 mixed(More)
A recombinant polyester-degrading hydrolase from Thermobifida sp. BCC23166 targeting on aliphatic-aromatic copolyester (rTfH) was produced in Streptomyces rimosus R7. rTfH was expressed by induction with thiostrepton as a C-terminal His6 fusion from the native gene sequence under the control of tipA promoter and purified from the culture supernatant to high(More)
A polyhydroxyalkanote depolymerase gene from Thermobifida sp. isolate BCC23166 was cloned and expressed as a C-terminal His6-tagged fusion in Pichia pastoris. Primary structure analysis revealed that the enzyme PhaZ-Th is a member of a proposed new subgroup of SCL-PHA depolymerase containing a proline–serine repeat linker. PhaZ-Th was expressed as two(More)
In this article, a novel circuit, which can function both as quadrature oscillator and universal biquad filter (lowpass, highpass and bandpass functions) is introduced. The features of the circuit are that, working as quadrature oscillator, the oscillation condition and oscillation frequency can be adjusted independently with the input bias currents:(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Polysiloxane has been used as a coupling material in restorative dental materials for several decades. However, few studies are available on the application of polysiloxane in other dental prosthesis functions. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of silane-SiO2 nanocomposite films on Candida albicans(More)
In this study, readily available antibodies that are used in standard agglutination tests were evaluated for their use in ABO blood typing by a surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPR imaging) technique. Five groups of antibodies, including mixed clones of anti-A, anti-B, and anti-AB, and single clones of anti-A and anti-B, were used to construct the(More)
A flow-induced cell movement assay combined with a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technique was developed to quantify the agglutination strength, derived from the standard tube-agglutination test. Red blood cells (RBCs), based on the ABO blood group system, were specifically captured by anti-A and/or anti-B antibodies immobilized on a sensor surface. The(More)
Bacillus sphaericus produces mosquito-larvicidal binary toxin composed of BinA and BinB. While BinB is expected to bind to a specific receptor on the cell membrane, BinA interacts to BinB or BinB receptor complex and translocates into the cytosol to exert its activity via unknown mechanism. To investigate functional roles of aromatic cluster in BinA, amino(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the antimicrobial activities of silver inorganic materials, including silver zeolite (AgZ), silver zirconium phosphate silicate (AgZrPSi) and silver zirconium phosphate (AgZrP), against oral microorganisms. In line with this objective, the morphology and structure of each type of silver based powders were also investigated. METHODS(More)
