Capsulation is a lightweight foundation packaged in singledose capsules.
Furthermore, capsulation was more uniform in the case of fibers shown in Fig.
Capsulation status was determined by PCR by using bexA-specific primers (22).
Some of the key technologies it features are chilsonation, granulation, microencapsulation, nanocomposite technology, spray drying, soft gel technology, capsulation, tableting and SEDDS technology.
HaeBPF (but not other Hae strains) has a copy of the Haemophilus insertion element IS1016 (16), which has been implicated in acquisition of capsulation genes and other unspecified virulence factors in other H.
Association of IS1016, first described as the Haemophilus capsulation locus--associated insertion sequence, with unusual and invasive virulence of NTHI strains has been suggested elsewhere (17,18), although no specific gene association has been identified.
Insertion sequence IS1016 and absence of Haemophilus capsulation genes in the Brazilian purpuric fever clone of Haemophilus influenzae biogroup aegyptius.
acs1 of Haemophilus influenzae type a capsulation locus region II encodes a bifunctional ribulose 5-phosphate reductase- CDP-ribitol pyrophosphorylase.
Molecular analysis showed two distinct type e strains circulating in Italy, both containing a single copy of the capsulation locus.
Because amplification of capsulation (cap) locus is assumed to contribute to strain virulence, the copy number of cap e locus in each isolate was also identified.
influenzae species, while primers directed to the bex region confirmed capsulation. A second round of PCR with primers directed to the cap e--specific region (6) generated an expected product of 1,350 bp.
