Bacterial pathogens that are multi-drug resistant compromise the effectiveness of treatment when they are the causative agents of infectious disease. These multi-drug resistance mechanisms allow bacteria to survive in the presence of clinically useful antimicrobial agents, thus reducing the efficacy of chemotherapy towards infectious disease. Importantly, active multi-drug efflux is a major mechanism for bacterial pathogen drug resistance. Therefore, because of their overwhelming presence in bacterial pathogens, these active multi-drug efflux mechanisms remain a major area of intense study, so that ultimately measures may be discovered to inhibit these active multi-drug efflux pumps. © 2012 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

The Neotropical eurypine genus Thisiomorphus is revised, based on external structural features of adults. Twelve species are recognized, including the following eleven new species (type areas in parentheses): T. festivus (Panama, Colón Prov.), T. osaensis (Costa Rica, Puntarenas Prov.), T. davidsoni (Brazil, Chapada), T. inaequalis (Ecuador, Napo Prov.), T. caeruleus (Panama, Panamá Prov.), T. brasiliensis (Brazil, Amazonas), T. solisi (Costa Rica, Guanacaste Prov.), T. andrewsi (Panama, Chiriquí Prov.), T. bolivianus (Bolivia, Santa Cruz Dept.), T. curticornis (Ecuador, Sucumbíos Prov.), and T. convergens (Brazil, Pará). A key to the 13 described eurypine genera of Central and South American is provided, along with a key to species of Thisiomorphus. The keys are supplemented with images of habitus and selected structural features, and maps of known distributions are provided. Copyright © 2016 Magnolia Press. Source

The development of trust between sales personnel and their customers has traditionally been considered a critical element in developing and maintaining a successful sales relationship. The use of persuasion in sales settings is a method that organizations utilize in training sales personnel, developing advertising campaigns within the promotional mix. However, little consideration is given to the consequences that occur when consumers recognize the sales persons' persuasion attempts, or persuasion knowledge. This study addresses the use of persuasion in the marketing of wine to the growing market segment of the Millennial generation, utilizing sales scenarios as the research method. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

With the proliferation of e-commerce, there is growing evidence that online impulse buying is an emerging phenomenon, which has been the focus of researchers from a variety of disciplines. This paper reports on two empirical studies that examine the interplay between a consumer's inherent impulsiveness to buy and website quality. Specifically, consistent with past online impulse buying research, website quality manifests as an environmental cue that directly influences the likelihood that a consumer will experience an urge to buy impulsively. Further, highly impulsive consumers can be both positively and negatively influenced by varying degrees of website quality. Thus, while the objective quality of an e-commerce website is important, the inherent impulsiveness of a consumer is also a critical factor for understanding how and why individuals react impulsively to varying degrees of website quality. The implications of the results for both future research and the design of electronic commerce websites are discussed. Source

With the development of nanotechnology, great progress has been made in the fabrication of nanochannels. Nanofluidic biochips based on nanochannel structures allow biomolecule transport, bioseparation, and biodetection. The domain applications of nanofluidic biochips with nanochannels are DNA stretching and separation. In this Review, the general fabrication methods for nanochannel structures and their applications in DNA analysis are discussed. These representative fabrication approaches include conventional photolithography, interference lithography, electron-beam lithography, nanoimprint lithography and polymer nanochannels. Other nanofabrication methods used to fabricate unique nanochannels, including sub-10-nm nanochannels, single nanochannels, and vertical nanochannels, are also mentioned. These nanofabrication methods provide an effective way to form nanoscale channel structures for nanofluidics and biosensor devices for DNA separation, detection, and sensing. The broad applications of nanochannels and future perspectives are also discussed. Fabrication development of nanochannels for DNA analysis in recent years (2004-2011) is presented. Various nanofabrication approaches for the formation of 1D, 2D, and 3D nanochannel structures are outlined, including conventional photolithography, nanolithography (nanoimprint, interference, electron beam, etc.) and other special methods. DNA separation, stretching, sensing, and transport are demonstrated in nanofluidic biochips with nanochannels. Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Source
