Endoglucanase activity at a second site in Pyrococcus furiosus triosephosphate isomerase-Promiscuity or compensation for a metabolic handicap?

Prerna Sharma, Purnananda Guptasarma
2017 FEBS Open Bio  
It appears, therefore, that two different sites on PfuTIM are responsible for the observed TIM and endoglucanase activities.  ...  Briefly, during some studies on cellulases being engineered to form 'chimeras', we have to use as a control an enzyme, which was expected to display no detectable endoglucanase/cellulase activity of its  ...  EglA is specific for cellulose [4, 15, 16] , and LamA acts preferentially on laminarins while showing only marginal activity upon cellulose [16] .  ...

Cooperative Multiterminal Radar and Communication: A New Paradigm for 6G Mobile Networks

Leonardo Leyva, Daniel Castanheira, Adao Silva, Atilio Gameiro, Lajos Hanzo
2021 IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine  
We consider an ultra-dense network (UDN) scenario relying on an active multistatic radar configuration and on cooperation between the access points across the entire coverage area.  ...  Furthermore, the merger of a sensing component into wireless communication networks has raised interest in recent years and it may become a compelling design objective for 6G.  ...  waves used for communication could also be used for radar-type sensing [11] [12] .  ...
