The gene chiA, which codes for endochitinase, was cloned from a soilborne Enterobacter agglomerans. Its complete sequence was determined, and the deduced amino acid sequence of the enzyme designated Chia_Entag yielded an open reading frame coding for 562 amino acids of a 61-kDa precursor protein with a putative leader peptide at its N terminus. The(More)
In experiments on rats, we studied the effects of experimental hyperthyroidism (subcutaneous injections of L-thyroxine, 50 μg/kg·day during 7 days) and hypercorticoidism (daily i.p. injections of hydrocortisone, 3 mg/kg·day during 30 days) on parameters of the М responses of the m. tibialis anterior after stimulation of the n. peroneus by single stimuli and(More)
Pre-harvest aflatoxin contamination (PAC) is a major problem facing peanut production worldwide. Produced by the ubiquitous soil fungus, Aspergillus flavus, aflatoxin is the most naturally occurring known carcinogen. The interaction between fungus and host resulting in PAC is complex, and breeding for PAC resistance has been slow. It has been shown that(More)

The interest to the accelerator-driven subcritical systems (ADS) devoted to the incineration of plutonium and minor actinides is a subject of study around the world. Since 1997, the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK·CEN is performing the pre-design studies aiming at the development of a small experimental ADS called MYRRHA which could be a step towards a(More)
SCK • CEN in partnership with IBA S.A. is designing a multipurpose ADS for R&D applications – MYRRHA – and is conducting an associated R&D programme. In a first stage, the project focuses mainly on demonstration of the ADS concept and safety research on sub-critical systems. In a later stage, the device will also be dedicated to research on structural(More)
