Vibrio parahaemolyticus harbours two distinct type III secretion systems (T3SS1 and T3SS2). A subset of 10 T3SS1 genes are transcribed when V. parahaemolyticus is grown in tissue culture medium [Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium (DMEM)], while transcription of these genes (except exsD) is minimal upon growth in Luria-Bertani-Salt (LB-S). Transcription of(More)
FADD is a common adaptor shared by several death receptors for signalling apoptosis through recruitment and activation of caspase 8 (refs 1-3). Death receptors are essential for immune homeostasis, but dispensable during embryogenesis. Surprisingly, Fadd(-/-) mice die in utero and conditional deletion of FADD leads to impaired lymphocyte proliferation. How(More)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a leading cause of seafood-borne gastroenteritis in many parts of the world, but there is limited knowledge of the pathogenesis of V. parahaemolyticus-induced diarrhea. The absence of an oral infection-based small animal model to study V. parahaemolyticus intestinal colonization and disease has constrained analyses of the course(More)
The genes encoding the nucleotide-binding site (NBS) and leucine-rich repeat (LRR) motifs constitute a large gene family in plants and have attracted much interest, because most of the plant disease-resistance genes that have been cloned are from this gene family. In this study, degenerate oligonucleotide primers, designed on the basis of conserved regions(More)
 Inventory plays a major role in deciding the overall manufacturing costs, and a good scheduling system should balance the on-time delivery of products versus low work-in-process (WIP) inventory. In this paper, the " CONstant Work-In-Process " (CONWIP) concept is applied to job shop scheduling to effectively control WIP inventory. A new mathematical(More)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is the leading worldwide cause of seafood-associated gastroenteritis, yet little is known regarding its intraintestinal gene expression or physiology. To date, in vivo analyses have focused on identification and characterization of virulence factors--e.g. a crucial Type III secretion system (T3SS2)--rather than genome-wide analyses(More)
The problem of delay-dependent robust H ∞ control for uncertain singular systems with time-varying delay is addressed in this paper. The uncertainty is assumed to be norm bounded. By establishing an integral inequality based on quadratic terms, a new delay-dependent bounded real lemma is derived and expressed in terms of linear matrix inequality(LMI). A(More)
UNLABELLED Intestinal colonization by Vibrio parahaemolyticus-the most common cause of seafood-borne bacterial enteritis worldwide-induces extensive disruption of intestinal microvilli. In orogastrically infected infant rabbits, reorganization of the apical brush border membrane includes effacement of some microvilli and marked elongation of others. All(More)
—This letter characterizes the performance of maximum ratio transmission (MRT) in ad hoc networks with simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT). We assume that the transmitters are equipped with multiple antennas and use MRT, while the typical receiver is equipped with a single antenna and an energy harvesting receiver using time(More)
