As the number of mobile devices accessing large-scale WLANs such as campus
and metropolitan area networks increases, the need for load balancing among the
cells becomes crucial. In addition, the network must also support some minimum
handoff tolerance defined by an application.
A number of load balancing techniques have been...
Trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMA-0) reductase activity of resting cells
of Escherichia coli was inhibited by tetrasodium ethylenediaminetetraacetate
(Na₄EDTA), benzoic acid (BA), and methylparaben (MP). The 50% inhibitory
concentrations of Na₄EDTA, BA, and MP were 20.2, 1.2, and 32.4 mM,
respectively. BA at pH 6.5 or below most effectively inhibited the TMA-0
Effect of 6.0% polyphosphate treatment on microbial growth and
composition of microbial flora of three representative seafoods were
Polyphosphate treatment washed off microorganisms by 1 log in
peeled shrimp (10⁷ to 10⁶ and 10⁶ to 10⁵) and cooked crab meat (10⁶
to 10⁵) and by 2 logs in red...
In order to determine the source of bacteria in Tillamook Bay,
Oregon, water samples were collected monthly for six months during
the rainy season from October 1975 through March 1976 from the bay
and its tributaries, the Kilchis, Trask, Tillamook, and Wilson
Fecal coliform levels of these samples were...
Sterile fish muscle homogenate was prepared from the individually
line caught black rockfish (Sebastes melanops) and inoculated
with the pure culture of Pseudomonas putrefaciens strain 17. The
inoculated homogenate was incubated at 5°C and the growth and production
of volatile sulfur compounds determined by a combined gas-liquid
chromatography and mass...
Pacific shrimp (Pandalus jordani) was washed repeatedly and the
eluted bacteria were enumerated and identified. Selected isolates
were tested for their adhesive properties.
Washing reduced the microbial load by 3.84 to 42.04%. The bacteria
which most resisted wash-off were Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas
spp. The easiest to wash off was Flavobacterium...
One hundred and fourteen strains of Moraxella species isolated
from marine fishery sources were investigated to determine the cause
of this organism's predominance in seafood. The nutritional requirements,
effect of pH, NaCl concentration, and temperature on growth,
utilization of carbohydrates, protein, and lipid, resistance to 12
antibiotics, sensitivity to phenethyl...
Aerobic heterotrophic bacteria associated with oyster larvae feed
algae Isochrysis galbana, Monochrysis lutheri and Pseudoisochrysis
paradoxa were isolated and enumerated. The bacterial numbers ranged
from 7.8x10³ to 3.9x10⁶ CFU per ml. The bacteria associated with
Pseudoisochrysis sp. were identified and the majority of isolates
belonged to genera Leucothrix (51%). Also...
