Porcine β-defensin 2 (pBD2), a recently discovered porcine defensin that is produced by the intestine, exerts antimicrobial activities and innate immune effects that are linked to intestinal diseases in pigs. Here, we report a codon-optimised protein corresponding to mature pBD2 cDNA that was expressed and purified in Pichia pastoris yeast. The highest… (More)
is extensible to IP-WSN applications. We also present implementation details and preliminary results from our laboratory testbed.
Post-weaning diarrhoea (PWD) in piglets is associated with colonization of the intestine with bacterial pathogens. In this study, we evaluated the use of recombinant porcine β-defensin 2 (rpBD2) as a medicated feed additive for weaned piglets. The crude extract from the culture supernatant of rpBD2-expressing Pichia pastoris was used as a medicated feed… (More)
This paper presents the work under investigation within the Embedded Networked Sensing (EmNetS) project funded by Enterprise Ireland under the WISen industry/academia consortium. The project addresses four main research areas within the embedded networked sensing space, namely, protocol stack development, middleware development, sensor network management… (More)
