Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) are the major cause of the common cold and account for 30-50% of all acute respiratory illnesses. Although HRV infections are usually harmless and invade only the upper respiratory tract, several studies demonstrate that HRV is involved in the exacerbation of asthma. VP1 is one of the surface-exposed proteins of the viral capsid(More)
The biosynthesis of rubber is thought to take place on the surface of rubber particles in laticifers, highly specialized cells that are present in more than 40 plant families. The small rubber particle protein (SRPP) has been supposed to be involved in rubber biosynthesis, and recently five SRPPs (TbSRPP1-5) were identified in the rubber-producing dandelion(More)
Colonies of Candida parapsilosis on culture plates were probed directly in situ using Raman spectroscopy for rapid identification of specific strains separated by a given time intervals (up to months apart). To classify the Raman spectra, data analysis was performed using the approach of principal component analysis (PCA). The analysis of the data sets(More)
We report on pattern recognition algorithms in discriminant analysis, which were used on Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) spectra (intensity of signal against wavelength) for metal identification and sorting purposes. In instances where accurate elemental concentrations are not needed, discriminant analysis can be applied, to compare and match(More)
BACKGROUND The house dust mite (HDM) allergen Der p 18 belongs to the glycoside hydrolase family 18 chitinases. The relevance of Der p 18 for house dust mite allergic patients has only been partly investigated. OBJECTIVE To perform a detailed characterization of Der p 18 on a molecular, structural and immunological level. METHODS Der p 18 was expressed(More)
The influence of biofilm formation as the mode of microorganism growth on degradation of synthetic polymers represents an important research topic. This study focuses on the effect of biofilm developed by Bacillus subtilis (BS) cultivated submerged under various nutrition conditions on biodeterioration of poly(ε-caprolactone) film. Polymer in the film form(More)
Accumulation of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) seems to be a common metabolic strategy adopted by many bacteria to cope with cold environments. This work aimed at evaluating and understanding the cryoprotective effect of PHB. At first a monomer of PHB, 3-hydroxybutyrate, was identified as a potent cryoprotectant capable of protecting model enzyme (lipase), yeast(More)
