With the security requirements of networks, biometrics authenticated schemes which are applied in the multi-server environment come to be more crucial and widely deployed. In this paper, we propose a novel biometric-based multi-server authentication and key agreement scheme which is based on the cryptanalysis of Mishra et al.'s scheme. The informal and(More)
To identify genes essential to biofilm formation in Pseudomonas putida KT2440, 12 mutants defective in oxidative stress-related or metabolic pathway-related genes were evaluated. Of them, only the dsbA mutant lacking the disulfide bond isomerase exhibited significantly increased attachment to the polystyrene surface. Visual evaluation by extracellular(More)
We tested the hypothesis that during metabolism of naphthalene and other substrates by Pseudomonas sp. strain As1 oxidative stress arises and can be reduced by antioxidant enzymes. Our approach was to prepare plasmid constructs that conferred expression of two single antioxidant enzymes [Fpr (ferredoxin-NADP(+) reductase) and SOD (superoxide dismutase)] and(More)
The fpr gene, which encodes a ferredoxin-NADP+ reductase, is known to participate in the reversible redox reactions between NADP+/NADPH and electron carriers, such as ferredoxin or flavodoxin. The role of Fpr and its regulatory protein, FinR, in Pseudomonas putida KT2440 on the oxidative and osmotic stress responses has already been characterized [Lee at(More)
At the time of this writing, Android devices are widely used, and many studies considering methods of forensic acquisition of data from Android devices have been conducted. Similarly, a diverse collection of smartphone forensic tools has also been introduced. However, studies conducted thus far do not normally guarantee data integrity required for digital(More)
The role of periplasmic disulfide oxidoreductase DsbA in Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 (STEC) was investigated. Deletion of dsbA (DeltadsbA) significantly decreased cell motility and alkaline phosphatase activity in STEC. STEC DeltadsbA also showed greater sensitivity to menadione and under low pH conditions. Significant reductions in(More)
We investigated the stoichiometry, kinetics, and mechanism of arsenite [As(III)] oxidation by ferrate [Fe(VI)] and performed arsenic removal tests using Fe(VI) as both an oxidant and a coagulant. As(III) was oxidized to As(V) (arsenate) by Fe(VI), with a stoichiometry of 3:2 [As(III):Fe(VI)]. Kinetic studies showed that the reaction of As(III) with Fe(VI)(More)
Ozonation is effective in improving the quality of municipal wastewater effluents by eliminating organic micropollutants. Nevertheless, ozone process design is still limited by (i) the large number of structurally diverse micropollutants and (ii) the varying quality of wastewater matrices (especially dissolved organic matter). These issues were addressed by(More)
