Fengycin, a lipopeptidic antibiotic, is synthesized nonribosomally by five fengycin synthetases (FenC, FenD, FenE, FenA, and FenB) in Bacillus subtilis F29-3. This work demonstrates that these fengycin synthetases interlock to form a chain, which coils into a 14.5-nm structure. In this chain, fengycin synthetases are linked in the order(More)
This retrospective study was to compare the clinical outcomes of volar locking plating (VLP) and percutaneous Kirschner wiring (PKW) for the management of displaced Colles type distal radius fractures in patients between 50 and 70 years old. There were 31 elderly patients with displaced Colles’ fractures treated by VLP. We compared them to 31 match-paired(More)
Toxocara canis is regarded as the main cause of human toxocarosis but the relative contribution of T. cati is probably underestimated; serological and other diagnostic methods used in most studies of this zoonotic disease do not distinguish between the two parasites. The definitive hosts for T. canis are caniidae. Pups generally have higher infection rates(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Allograft-prosthetic composite for reconstruction of the proximal femur after tumor excision is widely used as an alternative to megaprosthesis. To achieve greater biological fixation, we employed a long-stem prosthesis that is cemented proximally into the extracorporeally irradiated autograft and press-fit distally into the host(More)
Binary search on levels (BSOL) is a decision-tree algorithm for packet classification with superior speed performance. However, the most decision-treebased algorithms, like BSOL, may suffer from a memory explosion problem caused by filter replications. In this work, we improve the storage performance of BSOL by employing a scheme, replication control. Our(More)
Many Bacillus subtilis strains swarm, often forming colonies with tendrils on agar medium. It is known that B. subtilis swarming requires flagella and a biosurfactant, surfactin. In this study, we find that water surface tension plays a role in swarming dynamics. B. subtilis colonies were found to contain water, and when a low amount of surfactin is(More)
Packet classification is an enabling technology for various network services. Fast single-match packet classification can be achieved by using ternary content addressable memory (TCAM) because of the superior speed performance. TCAM has some drawbacks including incapability to store arbitrary ranges, confined TCAM capacity and limited choices of entry(More)
