Single-sideband (SSB) direct-detection optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission is experimentally demonstrated in a system with 125 km fiber length, which does not need a guard band between the carrier and the OFDM band. The waveforms of compatible SSB modulation are analytically derived and realized through a single… (More)
Android devices include many embedded resources such as Camera, Media Player and Sensors. These resources require programmers to explicitly request and release them. Missing release operations might cause serious problems such as performance degradation or system crash. This kind of defects is called resource leak. Despite a large body of existing works on… (More)
We developed and evaluated the specificity and sensitivity of a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) method for rapid detection of the food-borne Escherichia coli O157 strains. Six primers, including outer primers, inner primers and loop primers, were specially designed for recognizing eight distinct sequences on three targets, which were rfbE,… (More)
A total of 53 methicillin-resistant coagulase-negative staphylococci strains isolated in a hospital in Guangzhou, China, were analyzed to detect class 1 integrons and SCCmec typing. Thirty strains had the class 1 integrase (intI1) gene and 26 strains possessed the 3' conserved region of qacEDelta1-sul1. Four different types of gene cassette arrays were… (More)
During 2003 to 2004, class 1 integron was detected in 8 out of 10 tested enterococci isolates, with 2 of them positive for class 2 integron. This is the first report of class 2 integron in Enterococcus faecalis and class 1 integron in Enterococcus faecium.
Class 1 and 2 integrons were detected in 45.8% (54/118) and 19.5% (23/118) of our tested Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates, respectively. Three strains were positive for both the integrons. This is the first report of class 2 integrons in P. aeruginosa and also of isolates carrying class 1 and 2 integrons simultaneously.
Six methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA strains from two nosocomial infection cases described in a previous study , of which two occurred in March and the other four in May, 2005, were found to possess one copy of class 1 integron with aadA2 gene cassette located on chromosomes by Southern hybridization. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)… (More)
A loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) method for rapid detection of the food-borne L. monocytogenes strains had been developed and evaluated in this study. The optimal reaction condition was 65°C for 45 min, with the detection limit as 1 pg DNA/tube and 100 CFU/reaction. Application of the established LAMP assay was performed on 182 food-borne L.… (More)
Ne-Carboxymethyllysine (CML), a representative of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), is commonly found in food and is considered a potential hazard to human health. Food scientists have begun to investigate the formation of CML in food processes. As the understanding of CML is mainly based on that of endogenous CML from the fields of biology and… (More)
As a major concern in public health, methicillin-resistant staphylococci (MRS) still remains one of the most prevalent pathogens that cause nosocomial infections throughout the world and has been recently labeled as a "super bug" in antibiotic resistance. Thus, surveillance and investigation on antibiotic resistance mechanisms involved in clinical MRS… (More)
