In our screening program for new agrochemicals from Chinese medicinal herbs, Murraya exotica was found to possess insecticidal activity against the maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais and red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum. The essential oil of aerial parts of M. exotica was obtained by hydrodistillation and investigated by GC and GC-MS. The main components(More)
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae is the etiologic agent of porcine contagious pleuropneumonia, a cause of considerable world wide economic losses in the swine industry. We sequenced the complete genome of A. pleuropneumoniae, JL03, an isolate of serotype 3 prevalent in China. Its genome is a single chromosome of 2,242,062 base pairs containing 2,097(More)
<i>p</i>-Cycle networks designed for single-failure restorability exhibit some inherent dual-failure restorability. With increasing concerns for providing greater dual-failure restorability, however, it is becoming more important to be able to design such networks to meet target dual-failure restorability levels. We develop a new linear programming model(More)
— Dual-failure scenarios are a real possibility in today's optical networks and it is becoming more and more important for carriers and network operators to consider them when designing their networks. In this paper, we develop and analyze a linear programming model to design a p-cycle network to meet a user-specified minimum dual failure restorability.(More)
Metal ions are important micronutrients in cellular metabolism, but excess ions that cause toxic reactive oxygen species are harmful to cells. In bacteria, Fur family proteins such as Fur, Zur and PerR manage the iron and zinc uptake and oxidative stress responses, respectively. The single Fur-like protein (annotated as PerR) in Streptococcus suis has been(More)
